Last Saturday we had the opportunity to observe one of the best proposals in the electronic music scene in all Mexico with a mixture of sounds, ranging from Aztec percussions, ocarinas, flutes, synthesizer, voices and a great choreography to the level of Cirque Du Soleil, for over a hour Prehispanica  Electronica took the crowd through a journey that went from the Aztec ancestral rituals to a climactic scene with energetic explosions full of contemporary sonorities and enveloping atmospheres.

The amazing performance is run by an amazing dj and producer Alyosha Barreiro + Nok Niuk.

As part of the “2017: Mexico Year in Los Angeles (MXLA2017)” program, on Saturday, September 16 at 8:00 p.m. at the Bell Gardens Veterans Park Prehispanic Electronics (Alyosha Barreiro + Nok Niuk) memorable ritual concert in front of over 5000 people outdoors. In an interview with Barreiro we share some hilights of their concert:

“It was truly an honor to be able to present in such an important city, especially in times of such great political differences. It seems to me that it is time to unite and sympathize with our northern brothers who are going through very difficult times.

It is important to remind them where we come from and where we are going. ”

“Our objective was always clear; to re-identify ourselves as proud Mexicans, to honor our ancestors, to forget for a moment that there is a border created by political ideologies, and especially that in the end, our essence and past unites and identifies us.

Obviously as always, to present a unique show, giving the best of us always trying to create a unforgettable experience ”

On this occasion Prehispanica Electronica invited Karin Burnett aka Afrodita, to be part of this concert, who went on stage in the middle of the show and between prayers in Nahuatl and deep songs, captured the attention of the audience in a dramatical interpreting the passage of souls through Mictlan.

We remember that Aphrodite has a long musical career with her project Aphrodite, the cumbia goddess with whom she has performed in Mexico, USA and Europe continuously.

As usual, Gustavo Cisneros, visual artist of the project generated a unique multimedia world during the concert, giving the final touch to this explosive form.

The artist finished the interview by commenting on his upcoming concerts in Holland, Vienna and Mexico City.

Acid Pauli + Nico Stojan

acid pauli

Acid Pauli is Martin Gretschmann’s club-oriented live set. It has morphed over the years into an advanced DJ performance, incorporating not only techno and house but a wide variety of music across genres beyond dance music. As a versatile musician, Martin is equally comfortable performing at Techno Clubs in New York or Ibiza as he is producing radio plays and writing film music.
Born in the 70s in the Bavarian region of Germany, Martin Gretschmann started to play bass guitar in a punk/indie band in the late Eighties, whilst at the same time becoming interested in the evolution of electronic music and its instruments. The introduction of affordable samplers in that period led him towards the production of his first electronic tracks.
His initial forays under the name Console were released in 1995, and with the help of an Atari computer, a four-track tape machine, a sampler and a small synthesizer, he made his first album Pan or ama in 1996. Around this same time he joined the band The Notwist, tasked with handling the electronic spectrum of their music, and has been a constant member since until 2015. His Console project also became a band, when Gretschmann realized that playing live with friends was much more fun. After releasing several records and remixes, doing radio shows (together with Andreas Ammer), and touring extensively, Martin decided to begin a new solo project once again.

With the rise of the new Millenium, the moniker Acid Pauli was chosen and what has started as a computer based live-act, has since morphed into a dancefloor-focused hybrid live/DJ performance, yet reserves the freedom to experiment and allows for a precise blend of eclectic selections. These unique abilities were showcased on a highly-acclaimed installment of Crosstown Rebels’ Get Lost mix series, a lovely journey that encapsulated the range of emotion and depth present in his performances, and on ‘Countdown to Zero’, a DJ mix with Damian Lazarus.
Acid Pauli’s most recent full-length album, Mst, was released on Clown & Sunset in the summer of 2012. It was the subject of both wide-ranging praise and comparisons with Mr Scruff, Lemon Jelly, Ricardo Villalobos and Björk. 2014 saw Acid Pauli release three collaborative records and, amongst an intense worldwide tour schedule and album with The Notwist, play a number of high-profile solo dates. These included the Day Zero festival and a sound exhibition in Japan.
In 2016, as well as releasing several remixes and his popular track ‘Nana’, Martin started a record label called Ouïe together with Nico Stojan and handled the first release themselves. Martin also took part in a unique and ambitious project called The Golden Machine, creating an electronic device that produced a continuous stream of music for an entire year, and wrote the music for a feature film – “Es war einmal Indianerland” – a Coming of Age story based on the novel by Nils Mohl. In the Spring of 2017, Martin release his second Acid Pauli album, BLD.

Nico Stojan is a global citizen, a Berlin native and a devoted eater of Ayurvedic snacks. Chasing the sun, he spends his time between the fast-paced urban spaces of Europe and wild islands in the South Pacific which smell of Manuka honey and exotic plants.

Before he found his home in House, he had another one in Hip-Hop. Here he nurtured his love of jazz and soul and discovered his talent for working the crowd. But it was the vibrant mood of a growing Berlin club scene and a residency at Bar25 that would change his musical direction and bring him a new set of listeners that would soon become like family. These are the ones who laugh a lot, hug regularly and travel often, and they’ve taken him everywhere; to the big festivals that always sell out to the smaller ones that never do. Here he plays warm sets, hands in the air sets,lush sets. Sometimes he wears a turban while doing so.

In the studio he appreciates the mix of analogue and digital which is the basis of his long awaited album ‘Twisted Manners’ (to be released in 2015). Calling in the cavalry along the way, these passing poets and faraway instruments helped him to achieve his visions and create a sound for the right now. A sound to make its way into the hearts of all the other urban/tropical gypsies that exist out there.

Yet the old hip-hop guy in him still speaks. Plays vinyl when he can or uses digital technology to bring the right frequencies to the people. Whatever the method, he plays it like an instrument and plays the crowd like one too, almost as if being channelled by something that we can’t quite touch.

One of the dreamiest realists that you’ll get to know, he understands that magic hides within our reach, you just have to pull it from the dust. And he does his best with this dust-pulling stuff. For who? For us…
