Queer On Acid set to release their ‘Give Ya Luv’ EP


Queer On Acid build on a big release on Ovum with a thrilling new EP for the Takeout Records label.

Queer on Acid is a production, party and DJ outfit from Riga, Latvia. They are focussed on raves, queer culture and acid while making peak time tunes for dark and sweaty club spaces. They have their own label and have had high-profile support from Laurent Garnier, DJ Bone & Chris Liebing. After outings on Ovum and Amber Muse they are now back on Takeout with more essential sounds.

There is a heavyweight dub feeling to the lo-fi, gritty house of ‘Giv Ya Luv.’ It’s detailed with frosty synth stabs, soulful female vocals and darker words from a male voice that is lost in the mix. After that is the powerful ‘Motto’ with big, swinging drums and shadowy bass. Rave sirens rise up and down the scale, prickly acid twitches pepper the groove and coarse claps add further texture to this classy banger. Completing the EP is ‘Layer 1,’ a bubbly warehouse cut with big sound design, infectious, syncopated claps and tripped out chords that bring the futuristic soul.

This excellent EP is further proof that Queer on Acid has a uniquely characterful sound. We premiere ‘Giv Ya Luv’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it here.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
