The Acid – Ra (Alex Banks Remix)
Minimalist electronic trio, The Acid’s new single RA (released this June via. Infectious) has been given the Alex Banks rework.
The Acid are back with RA, the next release from the bands debut album Liminal, released earlier this year via Infectious Music/Mute Records in North America, to widespread critical acclaim including the likes of NME, The Independent and DIY.
With his take on RA, artist/producer Alex Banks injects layers of atmospheric percussion into the acoustically driven original for a dreamy down tempo edit, looping in the soft cooing vocals. Brighton native Alex Banks’ rework is a genre-blurring journey through house, trip hop and deeper ethereal beats.
The Acid came together as a partnership between Brit Adam Freeland, L.A and producer Steve Nalepa. First appearing in 2013 with their debut self-titled EP, the group quickly followed up with the release of Liminal, a sonically drenched body of work with clear nods to artists such as Portishead, Aphex Twin and Thom Yorke, that crosses over a range of genres, which include everything from techno and R&B to deep house and beyond.
Alex’s re-work of RA drops as part of a wider series of remixes, with other reworks coming from David August, Weval and Olaf Stuut ahead of their summer gigs and festival dates including Appletree, DE and Secret Garden Party, UK.
