Highly regarded, LA-based experimentalists The Acid—comprised of Adam Freeland, Steve Nalepa, and Ry X—released its brilliant debut album, Liminal, in July last year. Following on from the critical success of Liminal, album cut "Ra" gets the remix treatment from Berlin-based artist David August.

August—who was recently featured in our Bubblin' Up section—reworks the stripped back, haunting original into a beautiful slice of deep house. August masterfully intersperses Ry X's crooning vocals with thick synth lines, rolling melodies, and a booming bassline that will surely create dancefloor euphoria.

You can hear August's remix of "Ra" in full below and those in New York can catch The Acid on June 16 with Young Magic and Lord RAJA on support duties.
