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!

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 -
