ACID CAPSULE COLLECTION

TRIBUTE TO THE ACID HOUSE MOVEMENT

“The infusion of acid colors, such as vibrant greens and oranges,
has become a defining element in the ACID collection.”
– Pedro Silva, Creative Director

VAVA continues the journey through technology, industrial aesthetics and electronic music. The influence of dance music has never been more prevalent. The trip starts in the late 80s with the ACID HOUSE wave.

UNDERSTANDING ACID

Acid House, a subgenre of house music, surfaced in the late 1980s, principally in Chicago.
The term “acid” in acid house pertains to the distinctive sound of the Roland TB-303 synthesizer, extensively utilized in this genre.

The Roland TB-303 was initially crafted to replicate the sound of a bass guitar but ultimately yielded a unique and somewhat idiosyncratic sound when manipulated in unanticipated manners. Producers and DJs in the Chicago house scene, such as DJ Pierre and Phuture, commenced experimenting with the TB-303, generating distorted, squelching, and resonant sounds. These groundbreaking sonic elements became emblematic of acid house music.

RAVE CULTURE

The genre found traction in clubs and raves, with its energetic and psychedelic qualities enhancing its allure. The music, fashion, and communal ethos of the Acid House scene in 1988 indelibly shaped the cultural milieu of the era and contributed to the evolution of electronic dance music culture.

Acid house wielded a profound influence on the trajectory of electronic dance music, leaving an imprint on subsequent genres like techno and trance. Additionally, it played a pivotal role in molding the subterranean dance music culture and contributed to the global dissemination of electronic dance music in subsequent decades.

The term “Summer of Love ‘88” is occasionally employed to allude to a cultural and musical phenomenon that transpired in the United Kingdom in 1988, particularly linked to the Acid House and rave culture.

This application establishes a parallel between the occurrences of 1988 and the original Summer of Love in 1967, both periods characterized by a sense of communal celebration, music, and a spirit of liberation.

OUR TRIBUTE TO ACID

Embracing the energetic vibes of acid house, these colors have transcended their musical origins to influence our aesthetic landscape. The juxtaposition of these almost fluorescent hues against sleek modern frame designs, creates a visual tension that is both captivating and forward-thinking.
