In the last two years, Templo has played alongside some of the top experimental producers such as Shpongle, Ott., Kalya Scintilla, Random Rab, The Polish Ambassador, EOTO and Bluetech and has appeared at festivals such as Envision, Gem & Jam, Sonic Bloom, Once Upon A Festival and Arise Music Festival.

After his set up the Poudre River at Mishawaka last year outside of Ft. Collins, Colorado for an intimate and spectacular night with the Desert Dwellers and Random Rab then closing out Sonic Bloom this past June, Templo has engrained himself on our radar. Lately he released a stimulating single called, ‘Grid Color’ as a free music download.
‘Grid Color’ is a track that virtually massages your mind with deep melodic tones and soothing sound manipulations that are accompanied with a psychedelic bassline that will get you wiggling and saying, “yeah!”

To help explain this unique track throughly we reached out to Liam himself A.K.A Templo to gain more insight. Here is what we discovered.
First, we asked, what was your inspiration to write ‘Grid Color’?
A friend was getting some really crazy sounds from his guitar and a new delay pedal and I was pretty much just trying to figure out how to replicate a few of them when I made this track. -Templo
What is your song writing process?
Most of my songs are made in more of a format where it’s like I’m just jamming with myself. I’ll pick a tempo, sequence the drums and then just jam some keyboard or bass until I find something I like. So I never really know what I’m going to end up with at the end of the day. -Templo
Finally we asked, how would you describe the sound for ‘Grid Color’?
I would definitely say this one is on the more melodic downtempo side, relative to what I have been making lately. I’ve been pushing myself more on the low end lately and you can hear some of that come out as well. ‘Grid Color’ is like a nice hybrid of what I was working on a year ago and what I’m working on now. -Templo
