10.11.16 - Guillaume

Alpar is an Hungarian producer from Budapest, specialized in Ambient, Experimental, Illbient, Acid music. After a few appearences on compilations starting in 2012 (S*10 x Mashkulture.Net Mix Vol. 1 on the Hungarian label S*10, Railroads in juxtaposition on the Canadian Electric Voice Records), he released the Split album « Split » with two fellow producers of Budapest Carla Under Water and Stephan Olbricht on the German cassette label Sicsic Tapes : lofi ambient productions inspired by minimal contemporary music, but still the keyboards are not ashamed to be also under chill-out music, deep and trancey. His first proper album « Tropic Daze » will be also on cassette on the Belgian label Jj funhouse. This time it’s more proper analogue experimental acid music, intimate and relaxing, perfect for meditation.
