Acid Washed gets remixed by Danger, The Hacker, and more! PLUS tour dates!

It's hard to draw any parallel here between Acid Washed and uhhhhhh Britain (in order to connect them to this blog lol) buttttttttttt Acid Washed is playing a show for Clash Magazine in London (broad format breaking smile) soooooo that's how I'm working them into the blog!

Normally I don't break format but there are just too many good records coming from Record Makers for me to ignore. I want to write more but Blogger is being weird so I think I'm just going to have to publish this one!

Record Makers & French duo Acid Washed are proud to announce the release of their eponymous 12" with remixes from The Hacker, Mickey Moonlight, DANGER, Daniel Haaksman, Digikid84, Lazy Flow, Jungle Fiction and Stuff.

Since the release of their debut album in March, Acid Washed’s luscious disco has steadily gained admirers from all corners of the globe. From Cannes to New York, Berlin to London with fashion designer Jenny Packham, their reputation as DJs and live performers is growing. Their collaboration with British designer Anthony Burrill has provided hypnotic visuals, accompanying them wherever they go on this non-stop tour.

The time has now come for Record Makers to release their signature track, Acid Washed. The euphoric finale to every live set has undergone the deluxe remix treatment from the very best in established and upcoming producers.

The Hacker, long-time Miss Kittin collaborator and old friend of Acid Washed, shows why he is universally held in high regard. His minimal adjustments have maximum impact, a massive horn rising out of this sublime effort. Man Recordings supremo, Daniel Haaksman, adds a touch of funk mondial to the original, resulting in a slow-burning tropical house re-rub. Harpsichords float over eerie, space electro as DANGER cements his reputation as the dark horse of the French electronic scene with a future classic.

Mickey Moonlight took time out from finishing his debut album to contribute, Ed Banger’s finest pushing the highs and lows of the original into a swirling, summery mix. The hell-raising Young Gunz crew turn up with two of their finest, Digikid84 and Lazy Flow demonstrating why the party never stops when they are around. Icelandic teenagers, Jungle Fiction, serve notice of their undoubted potential with a sensational slice of French-house. Wrapping up proceedings with a dark disco cut is Stuff, a Grenoble based producer signed to Space Factory Records.

Richard D'Alpert and Andrew Claristidge had a vision of creating sophisticated electronics with a sharp pop aesthetic, using vintage and modern equipment. The result is a fusion of late nineties French house vibes and DFA disco touches that acknowledges the influence of Chicago and Detroit without being overly reverential. Throw names like Steve Reich, Giorgio Moroder into the hat as well if you like, but don’t dwell on them. Cosmic tunes for the party tonight.
