The so called Temple of the Sun which was dedicated to Mithra - The God of Sun - is a 1st century Greek temple rebuilt in the 1970's. The entrance of the temple still contains the ancient ruins of the fortress where the Armenian Kings lived.
Last Monday, the event took place in this exceptionally scenic setting. After the set, Acid Pauli was interviewed and answered questions asked by the online audience.
Following on from their "Call Of The Valley" EP, Acid Pauli and Nico Stojan return to their own imprint Ouïe with a brand new EP, called "Flying Lizard".
Inaugurated as an experimental space for left-field artists, the burgeoning label has secured a coveted reputation for issuing story-telling, evocative cuts which blur genres and challenge dancefloors. With this stirring three-track outing, the duo once again steers Ouïe as being a valuable source of essential electronica for open-minded music lovers.
The atmospheric "Flying Lizard" is a stunning masterclass of dreamy, emotive soundscapes, with rousing drums beating the terrain while the track soars with an enrapturing melody. "Huch" has listeners craving dancefloor heat with goading afro drum rhythms taking the lead before an elevating synth line weaves in some much-welcomed euphoria. The Closing track "Alambic" is equally provoking in its afro-inspired drum patterns and percussions. This one certainly invokes a positive response as pulsing pads drive momentum up a notch and Moscow based Slow House heroes Geju contributed a wonderful remix in their own signature sound.
