After two successful vinyl EPs, the DJ and producer duo Acid Arab (Guido Minisky & Herve Carvalho) presents a 70-minute oriental journey with almost exclusively tracks by Pilooski, Omar Souleyman, I: Cube and other artists.
Acid Mothers Temple is a completely freak out japanese neo-hippie tribe led by the guitarist Malato Kawabata (partially known for previous works published at the end of the 1970s). The band were formed in 1996 under the name Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O (Underground Freak Out). They started their career playing perpetual psychedelic jams very closed to Amon Duul II and Gong at their most gorgeous spacey rock moments…
302 Acid combines elements of computer technology with live instrumentation. Improvisation plays an integral role in the way they approach both composition and live performance. The result is a heavily-layered sound that draws influence from dub, ambient and IDM. On their EP "Ailanthus Altissima", arrangements are stripped down to raw drum and bass grooves, accompanied and punctuated by digital found-sound bursts and ambient layers, and often mutated through real-time processing until the line between these core elements is unrecognizable. Visual information is layered into a collage which breathes and pulsates, entwined around the musical arrangements.
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. (and subsequent offshoots) is a Japanese psychedelic rock band, the core of which formed in 1995.The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest vocalists. The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective. This live album was recorded at 15th Acid Mothers Temple Festival, Tokuzo (Nagoya) on December 10th, 2016.
