ABLE ARCHER 83 - Released 2017
Since June of 2018, ACP PRO has looked to expand its neon horizons by playing and working with marquee acts including Stilz, Betamaxx, Nina, Dan Terminus, Parallels, Shredder 1984, FM Attack, Tim Cappello, and Moondragon. Their next release, Videodisc, is an amplified retrowave trip through 80s movie magic, with a nod to vintage French house and electro. The duo is currently finishing two EPs while working on multiple events and projects, all aimed at broadening the scope and reach of their distinct sound.
Set amongst the eerie happenings of Spielbergian suburbia, of skating rinks, arcades, New Wave, goth, Hi-NRG, EBM, and hip-hop, the duo of ACP PRO negotiate the Cold War 80s through art. Continuing the era's sonic legacy of horror films, these self-proclaimed genre geeks flow from the impending feel of end times, to the pounding footsteps of Michael Myers, to the sparse music of Carpenter and Cameron, the Terminator’s fleshless chrome skull burning the hot breath of nuclear annihilation on the back of a teenager’s neck.
"One of the most distinctive acts of the night was Florida duo ACP PRO. Though they feature plenty of the usual cinematic flourishes that are de rigueur to synthwavers, what sets them apart is their beat DNA. More than most of their instrumental contemporaries, their beats are central to their heartbeat and architecture. With a rhythmic topography that can range from electronic body music to sleek, kicking electro, these guys craft a rare spot that can be shared by industrial warriors and bass heads alike. While others cast widescreen visions, ACP PRO dive under with the thump of a subterranean pulse." Bao Le-Huu, Orlando Weekly
