Astyplaz is a neologism.
It is composed of the word 'asty' which in Ancient Greek means city and the French word 'plage' meaning beach. With this neologism, more or less a poetical metaphor of beach culture to the city is achieved (city beach). Astyplaz is an Athens based 4 piece electronica/synth pop outfit. In the autumn of 2005 Astyplaz debut album Name your Slippers was released (L Music – Canada). The Album title was inspired by the controversial author G.C. Lichtenberg (1742 - 1799 who was considered a forerunner of Surrealism).
