The Acid debut another remix for "Fame," Jesse Rose reworks the original single this time with a sublime 4 am interpretation. It will be available for purchase digitally along with the Factory Floor remix via Mute on August 5th.
The Acid have just announced a new European tour for September this year, following the recent release of their exceptional debut album Liminal via Mute in the US and Infectious Music for the rest of the world. US tour dates to be announced soon.
The Acid came together from three separate worlds, joining together through a profound synchronicity. They are globe trotting, Grammy nominated DJ & Producer Adam Freeland, creator of subversive crossover hit 'We Want Your Soul', spearhead of a scene and label boss of Brighton's Marine Parade Records; Californian Polymath Steve Nalepa, whose time is split as a producer, composer, professor of music technology; and Australian, LA based artist and producer Ry X, whose 'Berlin EP' was released in late 2013 to softly bubbling acclaim, and who, with his other alter ego as one half ofHowling, created an eponymous club smash and toured heavily through 2013's festival circuit.
The sound they've created together is truly genre-less, a term used with increasing frequency but never quite so well suited as to them. The guitar, at times three or four of them layered together, seamlessly blends in amongst bass shudders, beat pulses and elongated drones as Ry's vocals beatify then rage amidst delicate synth lines and pitched down field recordings of street noise, birds, the clacking of bicycle spokes and the creaking of a leather jacket. The Acid weren't even sure what they were composing at first, as Ry describes, "It's like painting before you know what you are painting. You're stuck in the process before you've got an idea of what you're making. The beauty of that is complete freedom."
