Acid Pauli and Nico Stojan’s inimitable imprint Ouïe sees the long-time collaborators return with their second EP on the label since its 2016 launch.
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 steer 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. Closing the EP is ‘Alambic’, a track equally as provoking in its afro-inspired drum pattern and percussion, and it’s one certain to invoke a positive response as pulsing pads drive momentum up a notch.
