With the new year only barely started, Extended Records begins a new phase of its publishing work. After Savaint Fair’s Trip Thru The Cosmic Belt, Extended Records’ 20th release, we are releasing on March 31st Acid Luv, a debut album by Lieben (Sebastião Pinto) and the second LP in Extended’s catalog. A productive artist from Lisbon, Lieben is one of Extended Records’ founder and a recur- rent 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, Avid Luv is the first trip through Lieben’s sound- scape, 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.
