Initially releasing music under the moniker of Kid Flicks back and forth between his hometown of Athens and London from 2010-2017, Dervisis has now traded this in for his given name, seizing each moment and demanding the future. During his time as Kid Flicks, Dervisis performed at festivals such as Eurosonic (2017) in the Netherlands alongside Dua Lipa and Alma, Fengaros and had the privilege of sharing the stage with experimental artists such as Slow Magic, Craft Spells, A Hawk and a Hacksaw.

“The idea behind “Missing” was to create a pop track describing a needy and dysfunctional relationship, as a metaphor for my relationship with Athens, the city I grew up in. The past decade, due to the crisis (+ decadence of the city, unemployment, shitty jobs, rise of the far right, gentrification, the absence of my friends.who left to work abroad etc.) I have developed a weird relationship with Athens and sometimes I prefer missing the city than living here”, says Dervisis.
