My original idea for my new mix was to do one of my usual takes on experimental, drone music but quite naturally I caught myself listening to Erykah Badu's The Healer from her recent album New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) so my mix turned out like this: erykah badu - the healer blanketship & qulfus - blanketown j dilla - workinonit k.a.l - black-hearted bastards alias - new to a few dalek - tarnished paul white - a silent cry flying lotus - golden diva distance - out of mind king midas sound - cool out headhunter - technopolis arquiteq - birds of prey dusk+ blackdown - con/fusion feat. farrah j dilla - lightworks sugahspank! - golden chain >>>mix

To continue my argument about the best greek band of all time...well... at this point of time, Neon , an experimental-classical duo from Athens are probably one of the most serious contestants for the title. They have released three albums till now. A full-length debut called au theatre de sons imaginaires by poeta negra and the other two are self-released soundtracks for theatre plays. I firmly believe that they are one step ahead than anything that is released today in the greek music scene. They are currently unasigned and their new un-released album is a quite interesting case of modern interpretations of classical pieces. They first caught my attention with this track: la valse des oiseaux.mp3 They even caught my mom's attention with this song and her favorite artist is phill collins! Great stuff!

Villa 21

I guess the best greek band of all time in my humble opinion was and still is Villa 21*. They used english lyrics in their songs and they were formed in the early 80s. It was a new wave/ post punk band and quite underground because of that. They released 3 lps. The first two in the legendary greek label Creep Records. They lasted less than 10 years and then the singer died tragically in a car accident. I was too young in those years to catch them live but I always thought they were great and I had one superb song in my argument to make my point. In time I discovered one more and I felt more than content. My latest mixes are more new wave/synth pop oriented as a nostalgia about this kind of music has overtaken me lately but I promise that the next one will be slightly different. adn crystal - tam tam samba negativland - escape from noise kap bambino - more machine metal urbain - panik villa 21 - i see no! un froid seul - opera multi steel suicide - radiation crystal castles -

another one

My holidays have begun (sort of) so I've got plenty of free time and nothing to do with it. Since my planned trip is still 10 days away and all my friends have gone in their holidays I have to find a way to fill all these hours. So here's another mix. This one is noisy at first and it doesn't go well with the hot weather not until the last 4 or 5 songs! Also I'm putting the playlists back on. no age - every artist needs a tragedy heavy winged - gruesome pillow talk sudden infant - somniphobia religious knives - the sun prurient - strict ideas cursillistas - drone (groan) koushik - lying in the sun fuck buttons - sweet love for planet earth dan deacon - follow you (pangea version) eden express - ocean samba (tristeza) beck - gamma ray the beach boys - heroes and villains mix

boring days

Image
Here's a mix I did yesterday. I was really bored while doing it so I don't think it turned out any good. neon neon - raquel matthew dear - deserter dino felipe - working or not john maus - maniac ariel pink's haunted graffiti - oblivious peninsula chromatics - running up that hill billy idol - eyes without a face echo and the bunnymen - over the wall the chameleons (uk) - mad jack the dream academy - the edge of forever the psychedelic furs - pretty in pink pete wylie (the mighty whah!) - remember ariel pink's haunted graffiti - MTV'n' D&D young marble giants - searching for mr. right mix afterthought: I always find excuses to play john maus and ariel pink(twice!). Also in the photo the face of a friend appears out of the blue. It wasn't intended. If you ever see this...sorry dude! I just noticed (two days ago actually!)

declaration of the andromeda mix

When I do a mix I guess my subconscious hits the brainwashed part of my brain and kaboom! Ok I was never a fan of freudian psychology if the previous sentence doesn't make any sense. Basically what I do is putting songs one after the other with no logic or in an unorthodox context. I'm not a professional dj or anything of a sort. I like music a lot and I just do it as a hobby. I also decided not to put playlists any more (well, except if I'm asked). I'd more prefer to say a few words about certain songs lately. So hope you enjoy this one, there's some of the best music I've heard recently inside mix

If you are able to stand the whole 10 minutes of Panda Bear's Carrots (a live version from somewhere this time) then you won't experience any problem with this mix. You might actually enjoy it. I wonder what I was thinking when I turned to that song again. This mix was made because of Mark Stewart's Strange Cargo. I almost started dancing in the middle of the street when I first heard it, It' s more than great if a tune can make you feel like that these days. There's also the new Tricky single which finds him at his best in a long while. mix

Ok, my previous mix was a pile of shit that's why the playlist didn't appear! Nice songs but in an awful order. So I'll do it again better and more improved. Till then here's a nice photo of a space shrimp...
