A synth so synonymous with electronic dance music, “acid” has been a style and sound that has been included in so many singles, spanning multiple decades and never losing its shine. Its power, versatility, and memorability has led to some of the biggest dancefloor tunes, and now Robin Barclay steps onto the platform to bring us his take, delivering an epic 4-track EP titled ‘Acid Theory’!
A 4-track EP based around the iconic acid sound, this one really showcases the talents of this Scottish artist as he uses the same style repeatedly but with different results for each track. Opening up proceedings with the lead track, ‘A is for Acid’, Robin Barclay sets the tone for what is to come and gets things kicked off the perfect way with an energetic and pumping tune. Next up is ‘Acid Track 303’, a single that stretches the vibe of what we’ve come to know from the acid sound, with this one giving off some major banding house vibes. This track is then followed with ‘All Acid Everything’, another pumping tune that utilizes the acid synth as a groove tool. The EP is then completed with ‘Quit Talking Start Acid’, a single that adds more grittiness to the EP.
