ACID

Dutch DJ/producer Olaf Stuut has unleashed his signature dark and abstract spin on minimalist electronic trio, The Acid’s single RA, released this June via. Infectious).

The Acid are back with the next in a string of remixes of their original track RA, released earlier this year. This time remixed by Olaf Stuut (Traum, Cocoon, Atomnation), who conjures a dreamy trip with his notoriously indefinable genre and expert use of percussion.

The Acid came together as collaboration between British Grammy-nominated producer and renowned globe-trotting DJ Adam Freeland, Californian polymath Steve Nalepa and Australian vocalist/producer/cult folk artist Ry X. 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.

Remixes from David August, Weval and LUKA are OUT NOW as well as a further rework from Alex Banks, set for release prior to The Acid’s summer gigs and festival dates including Appletree Garden Festival, DE and Secret Garden Party, UK .

With her take on Ghost, Maya injects a fresh shot of energy into the heavy and atmospheric sonic soundscape provided by The Acid, giving the track a head-nodding revamp, enabling the song to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the freshest club dub plates around.

Maya Jane Coles is no stranger to the UK bass scene either, having spent the last eight years releasing a multitude of EP’s and albums, as well as stepping up on remix duties for the likes of The XX, Little Dragon and Bonobo to name a few.

The Acid came together as a partnership between Brit Adam Freeland, L.A. producer Steve Nalepa, and Ry Cuming, a.k.a. RY X, an Australian singer/songwriter. 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.
