Rita Mosss - Blue Sugar (Punk)

                                                   BandCamp Link : Blue Sugar

Η RITA MOSSS, γερμανοεβραία στην καταγωγή, αποτελεί γνωστη και παλιά καραβάνα του αθηναικου πεζοδρομίου και όχι μόνο.
Συγγρου, Βουκουρεστίου, Σόλωνος, είναι μερικά από τα γνωστά «στέκια» στα οποία σύχναζε. Όντας καλλιτεχνική φύση από μικρή ηλικία
υπηρέτησε με απίστευτη προσήλωση και πάθος την τέχνη του έρωτα. Το πλήρωμα του χρόνου όμως έφθασε κάποια στιγμή και μετα από
μια πολυετή πορεία έπρεπε να αποσυρθει σιγα σιγα. Μια όμως τόσο δραστηρια και ανησυχη προσωπικότητα δεν θα μπορούσε να φανταστει
τον εαυτό της να κάθεται άπραγη περνώντας βαρετά τις μέρες της συνταξιοδότησης της. Οποτε στον ελευθερο της χρόνο που είναι πια
αρκετος, εχει αφιερωθει στην σύνθεση τραγουδιων και συγγραφή στίχων. Λόγω προχωρημενων αρθριτικών και πρεσβυωπίας, αδυνατεί να
υποστηρίξει την Live performance των πνευματικών της έργων, γι'αυτό το λόγο εκμεταλλεύεται δύο καλους μεν, όχι και τόσο έξυπνους δε
παλιούς πελάτες της, με μονο αντάλλαγμα λίγη από την ερωτική σοφία της, απόσταγμα σαράντα και πλέον ετών στο κουρμπέτι.
Γιατι η Rita Mosss είναι μια γυναίκα με πάθος και λίγο πιο χαλαρή κωλοτρυπίδα...

Nalyssa Green - Push Your Lips (Indie/Folk)

H Nalyssa Green ασχολείται με τη μουσική εξαιτίας μιας εσωτερικής, επιτακτικής ανάγκης για έκφραση και επικοινωνία. Είναι αυτοδίδαχτη και γράφει τραγούδια, τραγουδά και παίζει κιθάρα, πλήκτρα, ακορντεόν και θέρεμιν. Το 2010 ηχογραφήθηκε από την ίδια και τον παραγωγό της Σπύρο Λιβάνη ο πρώτος της δίσκος με τίτλο Barock. Ο δίσκος αυτός φτιάχτηκε στο φοιτητικό δωμάτιο του Σπύρου με τρόπο lo fi και do it yourself. Το 2011 κυκλοφορεί σε συλλεκτικό λευκό βινύλιο από την Inner Ear. Το Νοέμβριο του 2011 η Nalyssa αρχίζει να ηχογραφεί το δεύτερο άλμπουμ της με τίτλο The Seed. Οι ηχογραφήσεις έγιναν σε ένα σπίτι σε ένα χωριό της ορεινής Κορινθίας- ξανά με τρόπο σαφώς σπιτικό και χειροποίητο - από τη Nalyssa, το Σπύρο Λιβάνη - ο οποίος επιμελήθηκε την ηχογράφηση και την παραγωγή - και το Εβάνκελο Ασλανίδη. Το The Seed κυκλοφορεί ήδη ελεύθερο από την Inner Ear . Ο νοηματικός άξονας αυτού του δίσκου διαμορφώνεται από σκέψεις γύρω από τη φύση και τη φυσική υπόσταση του ανθρώπου σε αντιδιαστολή με την κατακερματισμένη, βιαστική, αστική πραγματικότητα. Ο σπόρος, φορέας υπόσχεσης για το μέλλον, τρέφεται από το χωμάτινο περίγυρο του για να μεγαλώσει και να γίνει κάποια στιγμή ορατός και απτός. Είναι το σύμβολο ελπίδας και αισιοδοξίας γι αυτό που έρχεται, γι αυτό που φυτρώνει πάνω σε αυτό που φεύγει. Η αγάπη θα θριαμβεύσει.

Thodoris Triantafillou - The Saddest Story (Deep House)

Γεννημένος το 1977 ο Θοδωρής Τριανταφύλλου απο την πλήρως εξοπλισμένη με ραδιοφωνάκι κούνια του δέχτηκε τα μουσικά ερεθίσματα της δεκαετίας ‘70, άκουσε μουσικές της δεκαετίας του ‘80 απο τις κασσέτες της οικογένειας και των φίλων του, μεγάλωσε παρακολουθώντας βιντεοκλίπ στο MTV, αγοράσε δίσκους την δεκαετία του ‘90 όπου και ξεκίνησε να τους παίζει σε τοπικο ραδιοφωνικό σταθμό της Αθήνας και σε διαφορα πάρτυ και club την εποχή της έξαρσης της Rave σκηνής .
Την ίδια δεκαετία ήρθαν τα cd και άρχισαν να αντικαθιστούν τα βυνίλια απο τα περισσότερα δισκάδικα όπου άρχισε επίσης να αγοραζει.
Μέσα απο τον πρώτο του υπολογιστή έμαθε να γράφει μουσική και να κάνει τις πρώτες τυπικές παραγωγές.
Στο τέλος της δεκαετίας του ’90 κυκλοφόρησε το πρώτο του single, έγραψε ένα album και το διεθεσε χωρίς αντιτιμο για download απο το web site που είχε στήσει με ονομα metadubsoundesign.com (MDSD). Την δεκαετία των 00΄s εξελίχθηκαν τα mp3 σε παγκόσμιο μουσικό format, ο τρόπος διανομής της μουσικής άλλαξε και η ευχέρια να κυκλοφορήσει και να διανεμηθεί η μουσική ήταν μεγάλη αλλά και χαοτική.
Κάτω απο το όνομα Novox ο Θοδωρής παρεα με τον Lostra στις αρχές των 00’s κυκλοφόρησε 5 δίσκους EP όπως και αρκετα remix. Μέσα στην δεκαετία αυτή συνέχισε σόλο καριέρα με το όνομα του αλλά και σε συνεργασία με τον συνέταιρο του στην δισκογραφική Rhythmetic records CJ Jeff σε διάφορες δισκογραφικές εταιριες. Η παγκόσμα διανομή και οι πολυ καλές πωλήσεις έφεραν κριτικές και support απο τα μεγαλύτερα ονόματα της club σκηνής (James Zabiela, Richie Hawtin, Groove Armada,Tiefswartz, Dennis Ferrer, Jerome Sydenham, Josh Wink και πάρα πολλούς άλλους).
Ο Θοδωρής Τριανταφύλλου γράφει και παράγει ότι τον εκφράζει χωρίς παροπίδες για μουσικά είδη και format. Αγαπάει τον clubήχο και το clubbing αλλά έχει παίξει σχεδόν όλα τα μουσικά είδη (HipHop, Soul, Funk, R’n’B, Drum’N’Bass, Breaks, Techno,House E.t.c…), έχει αρκετές επιρροές απο ολα αυτα και πιστεύει πως "η ποιότητα, ο χαρακτήρας και η διάθεση του μουσικού συνόλου είναι αυτό που κάνει την διαφορά και όχι το είδος της μουσικής που πάιζεις" με αυτό το σκεπτικό θέλει να δημιουργεί ατμόσφαιρα και να διασκεδάζει τον ακροατή σε όποιοδήποτε μέρος και αν βρίσκεται.
Όλα αυτα τα χρόνια έχει συνεργαστεί με τα περισσότερα Club, Events και Festival της Αθήνας, της επαρχίας αλλά και της Ευρώπης. (Dybbuk, Watergate, Cavo Paradiso, Synch, Animal, Mikro, F Beach, Salt ‘N Pepper, Monroe, Αλσος, Berlin και πολλά άλλα...)
Βρίσκεται ανεmειγμένος σε πολλα project (Events, Parties, Bookings, Music Production κ.λ.π.) όπου μπορεί να κινείται άνετα μεταξυ αυτών. Οι μουσικές του βρίσκουν υποστήριξη απο μεγάλα ονόματα της παγκόσμιας club σκηνής και αποδοχής απο πολλούς λάτρεις της μουσικής βιομηχανίας. Συνεχίζει να είναι παρών στις μουσικές εξελίξεις και προσπαθεί πάντα να είναι αυθεντικός σε αυτό που κάνει και πιστός στα συναισθήματα του προς την μουσική που παράγει.
Οι τελευταίοι μήνες τον βρίσκουν να συνεργάζεται με τον CJ Jeff όπου μοιράζονται και την δισκογραφική Rhythmetic και τον Monsieur M, όπου τρέχουν το Project “Modernism”, αλλά και το design / music production Studio “Glory Hill”.

Rotting Christ- Nemecic (Black Metal)

During their rehearsal era in the late 1980s, the band began as grindcore and released various demos and splits with other bands from the Athens area. The group would later alter their sound with influence from proto-black metal bands like Celtic Frost and Venom, and in the process became one of the genre's instigators. Their 5 song demo, Satanas Tedeum, would show a grindcore/black metal crossover, followed by their career-breaking EP, Passage to Arcturo, in 1991.
One of band's first major appearances was on the 1993 "Fuck Christ Tour" consisting of Immortal and Blasphemy. During this concert, some audience members had engaged in cutting and self mutilation that resulted in hospitalization.Before signing to Unisound, Mayhem's Øystein Aarseth had expressed interest in distributing the band through his "Deathlike Silence Productions" label, but due to Aarseth's murder the same year, nothing materialized. The band would sign to Century Media in 1996 and remain on their roster for 10 years before joining Season of Mist.
Rotting Christ have played in many countries outside their native Greece, including both Americas, Greater Europe, Russia, the United Kingdom, Malta and the Middle East. Several heavy metal festivals around the world have hosted the band, including the 2003 Wacken Open Air in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Past tourmates have included My Dying Bride, Tristania, Tiamat, Vintersorg, Finntroll, Agathodaimon, Old Man's Child, Malevolent Creation, Anorexia Nervosa, Vader, Krisiun, Deicide, Behemoth, Melechesh and Nile, among many others.
As of 2012, Rotting Christ have been around 25 years, one of the longest running bands within the black metal genre. In celebration of the band's longevity, the 2 DVD + 2 CD compilation, "Non Serviam: A 20 Year Apocryphal Story," shot in Athens on December 8, 2007, was released worldwide February 23, 2009.
Aealo, the band's tenth studio album, was released on February 15, 2010 for Europe and February 23, 2010 for the USA.
Rotting Christ is currently working on a new album, which is due for release in early 2013.

Kitephonics - Words ( electronica/ambient)

Με μουσικό alter ego το project Φανταστικοί Ήχοι που απέσπασε ενθουσιώδεις κριτικές με την εμφάνισή του στο φετινό Synch, ο Kitephonics δημιουργεί πολύχρωμα ηχητικά υφαντά, πάντα με electronica/ambient βάση. Ως επί το πλείστον μελωδική και εσωτερική, η μουσική του διαφεύγει κατηγοριοποίησης αφού από τη μία μπορεί να δημιουργεί συναισθηματική techno με 4/4 beat επάνω σε αιθέριες μελωδίες και από την άλλη να σαμπλάρει τη φωνή της Ελευθερίας Αρβανιτάκη για να την εναποθέσει σε post-rock ατμόσφαιρες. Κομμάτια του έχουν συμπεριληφθεί στη συλλογή City Campers, και στην forthcoming Radio Lunatica της VIM Records.

Pop Eye - A Vicious Game (Pop)

Popeye wasn’t their favorite comic book hero! But Pop music has always been their passion, in 2005 Dimitris, Markos and Giannis decided to form their own pop band and look at pop music through their own “pop eye”!
Just a couple of years later and with no recorded album yet, they attracted Dimitris Papaspyropoulos’ (one of the most popular radio producers in Greece) attention and their song “If You…” was included in the best selling compilation “Silent Wonder” compiled by Dimitris Papaspyropoulos.
That was enough to create a buzz around their name and just a bit later their debut single “The Deepest Sea” was released by The Sound Of Everything with remixes by GAD and a french-style re-work by The Flying Silly Brothers. The single received massive support by the local indie radio stations.
Their debut album “Pop Eye” came out by Shift Records in 2008, containing one more hit single called “That’s Life”.

Now they are preparing their second album. The first taste of it comes with the single “Night Falls”. True to their pop origin Pop Eye deliver a summer, cheerful song, likely to inspire warm feelings and smiles in the listener. Definitely Unknown is the B-side but nonetheless with equal radio potential.  http://www.myspace.com/popeyegr    

Gardenbox - Sweet Oblivion (Post Rock)

GardenBox started off in late 1998. Since then theyve been creating and recording their music in their own studio, pursuing an orbit of constant development. With a background of a few individual productions on limited edition, they proceeded with their first official release in 2003 (PN22CD, self titled, POETA NEGRA RECORDS). Now, having just released The Last Resort (VEIN002, Venerate Industries
) their second official release, the band is gathering momentum for a series of live shows. At the same time, and following a brake of two weeks (sic), they have started working on new material. GardenBoxs music aims at illustrating the sound of contemporary cityscapes. Through an alternation of electronic and electric sound as the leading vehicle, they attempt to outline the conditions of urban life. With their resonating allusions to current trends of electronica and post rock, they create a sound idiom that is individual, prolific and tence. The compositions are vigorously intreaguing, featuring drastic transitions and peaks. Their structure is at times dominated by layers of electronic sounds and beats, at others by the circular unfolding of melodic passages on guitar. http://www.gardenbox.org/

Not much later than that, the three of them found Eskimint, who had been working on trip-hop vocals by herself. They formed Ekos
Quartet in November 2005, and recorded their first song, “Fortune’s lake”, in January 2006 and they performed live for the first time in December 06. During 2007, the band gave many live concerts and kept producing new tracks. This opportunity gave them the courage and the inspiration to start expanding their musical horizons, mixing downbeat, electronica, funk, hip-hop, jazz breaks, post rock, classical samples and ambient sounds, all based on a tripping background and mood. Their first release was the song “Free with you” in “Concealed Truth” compilation by Andrianos Papadeas (June 07).

Their aim is to achieve evolution, improvisation, experimentation and originality through their musical journey, during which they can express their emotions and talk about a world that can be more beautiful and charming, rather than controllable.

Misuse - Desecid (Experimental/ Instrumental Rock/Electronic)

“Formed in 2001, Misuse are considered by most as the definitive post-rock band in Greece.
And there is a good reason for this consideration: not only was their debut album very well received by both critics and fans, but mainly because Misuse never fail to deliver an outstanding live perfomance.
It is no suprise that they have been Mogwai’s constant pick in their greek tours and have shared th
e stage with acts such as: Silver Mt. Zion, Piano Magic, Cripple Black Phoenix and more...
People will not think Misuse is the definitive greek post-rock band anymore. Not because they’re not. It’s because during the three years after their debut, the band has been experimenting with new sounds, textures and styles that push boundaries beyond the post-rock genre.
In their sophomore album, April, Misuse took a bold step towards new sonic planes. However, no matter how far they went, they managed to maintain the feel and the identity of the band.” - from spinalonga.net
