Alic keep the flag flying for Psychedelic Techno in the tradition of Spirallianz, Midi Miliz, and the likes. The brilliant sound of Close Distance, their 1st album, has a raw power to it. Razor-sharp hi hats, heady filter sweeps, dramatic melodies, and a proper pinch of Acid – that’s Alic. End of April they’ll release a Remix EP with Kino Oko, Frechbax, and Point.
