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/

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

Active Member - Κανε μου Τη Χαρη (Low Bap)

Η αρχή

Τον Ιούνη του 1992, ο B.D.Foxmoor (Μιχάλης Μυτακίδης) μαζί με έναν Dj, ίδρυσε το πρώτο ελληνικό συγκρότημα hip hop μουσικής, τους Active Member. O πυρήνας των ανθρώπων που πίστεψαν στην προσπάθεια αυτή, οργανώθηκε καλύτερα και έτσι δημιουργήθηκε η Freestyle Productions. Η Freestyle Productions ήταν από τότε, η ομάδα παραγωγής μέσω της οποίας κυκλοφόρησαν ανεξάρτητα οι δύο πρώτοι δίσκοι των Active Member, καθώς και άλλα δυο lp´s (ένας προσωπικός δίσκος του B.D.Foxmoor και μια συλλογή με τα σχήματα που υπήρχαν τότε) και ένα maxi single.

Το 1995, η hip hop μουσική ήταν ακόμα σχεδόν άγνωστη στην Eλλάδα. Εκείνη, λοιπόν, την εποχή οι Active Member προσέλκυσαν το ενδιαφέρον των δισκογραφικών εταιριών στη διαρκεια κάποιου live σ’ έναν μεγάλο συναυλιακό χώρο της Αθήνας. Οι στίχοι τους, η σκηνική τους παρουσία και η επαφή τους με το κοινό έπαιξαν καθοριστικό ρόλο. Έτσι, για πρώτη φορά στη χώρα, ένα συγκρότημα hip hop μουσικής, υπέγραψε συμβόλαιο με μια πολυεθνική εταιρία, την Warner. Τα πράγματα άρχισαν να παίρνουν το δρόμο τους και μέσα σε λίγους μήνες κυκλοφόρησε ο τρίτος τους δίσκος με τίτλο «Το Μεγάλο Κόλπο», ο οποίος τους έκανε ευρύτερα γνωστούς.
Σε εκείνο τον δίσκο, οι Active Member, αποφάσισαν να κάνουν μια υπέρβαση και να βαφτίσουν ξανά το hip hop όπως το αντιλαμβάνονταν μέχρι τότε αυτοί, και να το πουν Low Bap

Dirty Granny Tales - King Of Ants (Dark Cabaret)

About Dirty Granny Tales
.:: DIRTY GRANNY TALES ::.

What happens when music brings puppets to life?
It’s when the Dirty Granny tells her stories…
This is not the sweet Grandma that will narrate a fairy tale for the children in front of the fireplace. She is not the one to knit a woolen scarf while the kitten cuddles on her feet.
This old woman is dirty, releasing a rotting smell. You can’t define the gaze on her face, because it’s absent, you can’t stand the timbre of her voice because it’s piercing your brain with the strength of a thousand needles. Her guise is freezing cold, makes you wonder if she belongs to your World. What kind of stories would such a creature chronicle? Not the kind that work as a lullaby…
The more repulsive her aura, the more you become bewitched. What is that she is knitting with her nails? Would you dare to try it on.......                                                                                                   Mouldbreath - voices, guitars, mandolin

Minor Project - In Colors (Classical/Indie/Folk)

Κάπου στα μέσα του 2010 και με αφορμή την παρουσίαση δίσκου των B-sides μαζεύτηκαν οι τέσσερις τους για να παρουσιάσουν την ακυκλοφόρητη δουλειά του Στάθη. Λίγους μήνες μετά , ηχογράφούν τα κομμάτια που θα αποτελέσουν τον κορμό της επερχόμενης πρώτης κυκλοφορίας τους, σε συνεργασία με τον Διονύση Μπάστα στο NoiseBox studio.
Με την αρχή του νέου έτους (23/1/2011) η μπάντα δίνει την πρώτη της
συναυλία ως “Minor Project” πλέον, στο αγαπημένο τους Six D.O.G.S , το οποίο στη συνέχεια αποτέλεσε την βασικότερη συναυλιακή τους εστία. Ακολούθησε μια σειρά συναυλιών σε Αθήνα, Πάτρα,Χαλκίδα ,Καστοριά και άλλες πόλεις της επαρχίας.
Λίγο αργότερα, τον Μάιο, ο παραγωγός του Μελωδία 99,2 Χρήστος Παπαμιχάλης κυκλοφόρει τη συλλογή Lost.Not.Found από την EMI ,στην οποία συμπεριλαμβάνει το ακυκλοφόρητο μέχρι τότε “Great”.
Η πιο σημαντική ίσως εξέλιξη της μέχρι τώρα πορείας της μπάντας είναι η ένταξή της στην οικογένεια της Αντέλμα και η απόφαση συνεργασίας με το Στάθη Δρογώση για την κυκλοφορία του πρώτου ολοκληρωμένου άλμπουμ των Minor.
Ο δίσκος, με όνομα ‘In Colors’, διατίθεται πλέον από το site της AntelmaMusic σε ηλεκτρονική μορφή είτε σε φυσική μορφή μέσω παραγγελίας.

Larry Gus - Hearing The Words You Said ( Hip Hop / J-POP / Psychedelic)

 Larry Gus is a floweromantic musician – as a journalist has written, or a computer systems’ engineer or just a 28-year-old guy, living with his mom in his little home town in north Greece. Or then again, all of the above. But, above all that, Larry Gus is my friend.
 This is how Vasilis Katsoupis, director of “My friend Larry Gus” wishes to approach the subject of his documentary. Simply. Truthfully. Sincerely. The idea is to follow Larry Gus in all the places that have formed his memories, music, his sentimental overflows, his harsh cynisicm…
But, getting back to the beginning of this idea, what is the idea?
 My friend Larry Gus is a fly on the wall documentary, exploring the social aspect of one individual, in this case Pananagiotis Melidis aka Larry Gus. The word larrygus in greek  means Larynx making his nick name a wonderful wordplay.

Ciccada - A Garden Of Delights (Progressive Rock)

Ciccada is a progressive rock band from Athens -Greece. It was formed in April 2005 by flutist Nicolas Nikolopoulos (who plays also the keyboards) and fellow guitar player George Mouchos.

Cabin 54 - Its Not Easy (Pop/Rock)

From the smoky bars and shoddy clubs played on a weekly basis, to the 40,000 capacity Kalimarmaro Stadium as support act for European superstar Sakis Rouvas, one could say that as a Greek live band Cabin 54 has seen it all.
The leap from their beloved stage to the uncertain world of discography proved a large one however, as the boys were torn between the music they felt they needed to make and that which they were told was fit for the Greek market. That dilemma may have slowed down but never threatened to stop Cabin 54
With the songwriting skills of the band and the support of their always enthusiastic fan base, that leap has finally been taken in grand style with their new single, “It’s not easy” - a song that encompasses everything that Cabin 54 is about without compromise; a rock attitude with rhythmic swagger, hints of jazziness occasionally giving way to pop sensibilities, all the while led by the soulful vocals of Antonis Dominos whose lyrics are not afraid to tackle difficult issues head-on.
“It’s not easy” is the first step of what Cabin 54 will prove to be many. The song’s video clip is expected in early September while the full collection of originals will be out on CD by late fall. Until then, the boys can be found moving the masses from the comfortable confines of their second home – the stage. Chances are, they’re doing it at a smoky bar (or stadium) near you.

Aasgard - Nekriki Mistagogia (Black Metal)

Aasgard is from the ancient land called Hellas.The band was created at the winter of 2006 by demon brothers Aethyr and Marrok.The music is about the darkness the pagan culture and war.The inspiration is coming from the glorified past of ancient Hellas and Hellenic Gods.The band is against all the east religion

Electric Litany is a band was formed in the spring of 2007 in North London, England. The lineup consists of
Alexandros Miaris from Corfu, Greece - vocals, guitars, piano, synths
Richard Simic from Devonshire, England - drums, percussion, cretan lute
Duane Petrovich from Texas, USA - bass
Benjamin Prince - synths, piano.
The story of the band started, when Alexandros and Richard met in London. Alexandros moved from Corfu to London, while Richard was leaving Devonshire for London in search of forming a band of his own. Duane was the last member to join the band, since he was found by Alex and Richard through an ad.
Their first rehearsals were taking place in some pretty unusual places, like abandoned and derelict buildings. Since the rehearsals saw progress, they soon attended their first live concerts. Their first demos were recorded in an old pub by the name “Fallen Angel” (that was soon turned into an illegal studio, in need of a place for rehearsing).

The Swing Shoes - Swing '42 (Gypsy Swing)

Οι Swing Shoes ξεκίνησαν το 2006 με τον Άδωνι Γουλιέλμο και τον Γιώργο Κούτρα σαν κιθαριστικό ντουέτο παίζοντας στο δρόμο ένα μίγμα από swing, gypsy jazz, rock, gospel και παραδοσιακά ελληνικά κομμάτια.
Το σχήμα, περνώντας διάφορες φάσεις, πήρε τη σημερινή του μορφή με την προσθήκη του μπασίστα Πάνου Τομαρά (The Earthbound), του Ανδρέα Σιγαλού στο βιολί και του Νίκου Ζωγράφου στα κρουστά.

Dr Vodkatini - Vodka Bossa (Bossa Nova / Funk / Soul)

Dr.Vodkatini were formed by a handful of musicians already playing in other bands.
All of them being fans of feel-good and groovy music they found themselves jammimg endlessly in the studio and after a while they moved their sessions on-stage of a few of the most famous live spots of Athens.
That was the time that other members joined the band and the sequence of live performances increased rapidly for Dr. Vodkatini to become one of the most frequently appearing live bands in the local music scene ever, some of the most important festivals
(International Lounge Festival, European Music Day Festival, Earthdance, among others) included.
Nowadays their sound has been developed to become what is commonly known as freestyle and raw groove or just feel-good-groove music as the band prefers to label themselves.
Influenced by the soul music’s standards as set by Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye and the latin feel of Tito Puente, implementing the smoothness of Burt Bacharach and Donald Byrd together, Dr Vodkatini are releasing 10 tracks that will make you party, sway, fall in love and all that with a big smile on your face.
