Souloop

 
Moonloop Café
Released on 17 Nov 2016

Souloop is an electro-hang project gravitating around Julien “Aslak” Aho & Daniel “Almacalma” Leuenberger, two fine swiss melomaniacs who just love to make music.

They are joined by their usual accomplices, Sophie Rampa & Sacha Nielsen from the Hang Brothers.

Souloop is a blend of electronic grooves and the mellow energy of the Hang Drum. Soulful vocals, a dash of percussion and wind instruments round off the ensemble.

Debut album on Moonloop Café.

Moonloop Café vol​.​1

 
Moonloop Café
Released on 30 Sept 2016

Moonloop Café is a new sublabel of Moonloop Records aimed at releasing great music form our artists, friends and contacts which is different from psytrance music. 

Moonloop Records will continue to release psytrance music from deep progressive to forest madness, and Moonloop Café will release ambient, techno, electro, free-style, dub, downtempo, tech-house or even acoustic world music. 

As a first release, the V/A Moonloop Café Vol.1 gives you a glimpse in the works of Aslak as a chill-out artist with lots of acoustic instruments, as well as two new tracks by the Hang Brothers. We also proudly introduce Souloop which is the live electro project of our DJ Almacalma, his future album being produced by Aslak. There are also here two ambient compositions by chill-out producer Mercury Fall, a dub electro track by Logic Wave with live flute and a beautiful song by Sophie Rampa called « The painting », which is an important part of the Hang Brothers live shows.

Released on 20 June 2016

Aslak's first PsyTrance album is finally out :)

…the Game of the Gods…
There are many ways to play this game.
But for me, one of the best way is through music and dance.

Vibrance :
Chapter One

 
Released on 15 March 2016  

This is the first "handpan music" solo album of Julien Aho, also known as "Aslak". 

The majority of the tracks on this album are pure handpan solos with no additional editing. 
The instruments used on these are : AsaChan RDT, Meraki Magic Voyage, AsaChan Chandhra, Saraz Kurd9, PanArt Integral Hang. 

Three of the tracks have additional sounds : 
- "Odalalune" was made with my great friend & flute player : Sophie Rampa 
- "Kimera & the Forest" has some Dan Moi and Shamanic Drum added 
- "Kimera & the Dancing Spirits" has some atmospheric & percussion samples added 

The main themes that were around me while making this album were : Simplicity, Humility, Self-confidence, Stopping the search for perfection, Accepting the mistakes and errors. 

I hope this album will be a perfect companion for meditation, contemplation, sonic journey, or just for a nice ambient atmosphere. 

With lots of Love, 
Julien Aho
