A productive artist from Lisbon, Lieben is one of Extended Records’ founder and a recurrent name in the label’s showcases, where his live act delivers restless combinations of acid, house, and electro. Two years after Sangue (his participation in the first volume of Extended V.A. 001), Lieben is back with Acid Luv, a mature reflection on his childhood in Lisbon presented in 12 tracks of an intimate and personal nature. Produced between June and December 2016, Acid Luv is the first trip through Lieben’s soundscape, inhabited by solar melodies, dilated percussions, and samples full of urban nostalgia at times cinematic, at times mundane. These elements come together in acid lines that gain balance, subverting the work’s apparent sweetness, making it complex and rhythmically thick.
