Following a sold out performance in Los Angeles and their live debut in New York, The Acid announces a series of tour dates in the US and Canada starting September 18th in San Francisco, including performances at Decibel Festival and Symbiosis Gathering. They play Vancouver’s Fortune Sound Club on September 22, 2015.
The Acid recently made available a string of remixes of their album track “Ra,” released earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Beatport, Thump, and NPR. Remixes from David August, Luka, Weval, and Olaf Stuut and are out now as well as a further rework from Alex Banks, set for release this summer.
For a glimpse into the The Acid’s impressive live performance of Liminal, The Acid have created a video that offers insight into the technological complexities and inspirations.
The Acid came together from three separate worlds. There’s globe trotting, Grammy-nominated DJ/Producer Adam Freeland, creator of subversive crossover hit “We Want Your Soul,” and label boss of Brighton’s Marine Parade Records. Steve Nalepa splits his time between producing, composing and teaching music technology. Last is Australian-born, LA-based artist and producer Ry X, whose Berlin EP was released on Swedish label Dumont Dumont and later Infectious in 2013 to softly bubbling acclaim. He is also one half of Howling. Their debut EP first emerged online earlier last year and was shared quietly by the band, but the music was so immediately captivating, so markedly different, that word spread fast and quickly formed a life of its own.
