John Frusciante to release his second acid techno project

If you are a fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and dance music, this may be some exciting news for you to wrap your head around. During the 1990s, guitarist John Frusciante abruptly left the iconic band to deal with some personal battles in his life that were taking away from his focus to music. After rejoining and then leaving once again only a little while later, Frusciante found himself following a different genre in music that he sought to explore: dance music.

A couple of years ago, the former guitarist spoke about his dance alias Trickfinger and how he saw electronic dance music in a completely different light than during his time doing rock music with the the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He released his critically acclaimed debut project entitled Trickfinger under the moniker back in 2015 and has been working on a follow up ever since. Frusciante had this to say in the description of the project on his Soundcloud page.

“In my opinion, making music with no intention of releasing it is the best thing a musician can do for his own development in this day and age. The Trickfinger LP was made in that mindset, and it was the beginning of a new musical life for me. When I hear it, it sounds like I am opening up doorways to new worlds, and I never have had that feeling listening to music I made for the purpose of releasing it and selling it.”

Trickfinger II is slated to officially release through Acid Test and will feature 6 new productions from Frusciante. Check out the tracks below and let us know what you think of the project.
