DT767 – Queer on Acid
Queer on Acid are two old friends and partners from Riga who discovered house music back in the 1990s. After many years in the music they decided to form a project and record label with a hooligan title – ‘Queer on Acid’, which is about the queer culture and the electronic music to which they belong.
As electronic music fans, DJs and party animals, guys met, obviously, in an underground club in Riga almost 20 years ago. One day they were fooling around and made two tracks that reminded them of the big warehouse parties they used to rave at – “Bed Drama” and “Rusty Nails”. So, Queer on Acid was born.
Their debut “Bed Drama” EP in the summer of 2019 has got attention from big guns of the scene such as Shadow Child, Ramon Tapia, Mat.Joe, Huxley, Billy Kenny, Will Clarke to mention a few. The next single “Lilly’s Boobs” came a month later, and then guys also remixed Walker & Royce’s smash “Fetish” for Amber Muse which was heavily supported by Shadow Child in his Rinse FM radio show.
Now, Queer On Acid builds a connection with Shadow Child and Kry Wolf’s new imprint Takeout (Food Music sister label) with two releases signed for release. The first, which came out on vinyl in November of 2020, was the double A-Side EP recorded with the legendary house music vocalist, songwriter and DJ Robert Owens. It also has got remixed by Polymod, MASC and Fear-E. The next “Give Ya Luv” EP with new original tracks dropped on Takeout in September 2021.
In the summer 2021 the duo made a four-tracker EP for the legendary Josh Wink’s Ovum Recordings under their names Queer On Acid and Taran & Lomov. Guys also signed another “Short Cut” EP to Kneaded Pains which will close their release schedule in 2021.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Club ready, energy fuelled, acid-tinged portion of dance tracks.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
We put all our love into all the mixes we do, so there are all favourites, both new and older ones. But if we choose a particular track, this could be M.Luc’s “I Vogue” released on Purveyor Underground. A ballroom vogue extravaganza mover!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
It’s all about the groove.
Tell us about your next EP?
We love to rave and dance, so all three tracks on the “Short Cut” EP that’s coming out on Kneaded Pains on Dec 3 – and we’re excited about this – are designed to make everyone move their booty’s everywhere! Tracks have a different vibe, for any part of the night. We deliver percussive rhythms, elated pads, raw Chi-town styled grooves and vocal loops.
What have you got coming up?
We constantly work on new productions and have just finished two new EP’s – one more on house type, another more towards techno. These don’t have a home yet.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Be yourself and spread love!
