Stevie R – Melt LP

Greek musician and producer Stevie R makes a welcome return to Chapter 24 Records with Melt. Above you can stream “Gkii”. The track introduces first the Egyptian and then the Greek melodies as a sort of cross-cultural dialogue, before fusing the two in a beautiful Greco-Egyptian harmony as the track unfolds. Featuring on the track is CERPINTXT, a young female Egyptian artist who was one of Stevie’s students at Point Blank.

Melt showcases Stevie’s desire to bring back ‘rebetiko’ – the little known, underground ‘blues’ music of his native Greece, music that was often outlawed due to its anti-establishment themes. His approach to making music is much like making art and his masterful ability to tell a story is omnipresent in all of his work. Infusing a modern electronic beat with the traditional sounds of his home country, Melt proved to be a cathartic process for Stevie.

In 2018 alone he played alongside artists including; John Talabot and Fitz Kalkbrenner. His live shows, which he’s taken to Sisyphos, ADE and Ministry Of Sound, are a multi-sensory journey. In his productions, Stevie incorporates a broad spectrum of instruments such as traditional Greek tzouras and baglamas, a variety of guitars, acoustic and electric violins, field recordings and modular synthesisers.

Stevie R ‘Melt’, released 15th March on Chapter 24 Records.

“Melt is the story of 13 animals trying to go to space. Each animal is a figure in the artist’s life, accompanying the others on the difficult journey. Nobody knows where space is, what it looks or feels like. To me, space is where our fears disappear, our loved ones stand beside us, and the fights in our mind cease. Nevertheless, there is a different journey for each and every one of us, our Universe is unique and the animals always look different; in this journey, we travel alone.” – Stevie R

Theus Mago & Local Suicide – Komm Ins Loch

After a hugely prolific year for the Local Suicide duo, which has brought us collaborations with names such as Low Manuel and Mijo as well as DJ sets across Europe and Asia, they are joining the Mexican label Duro with a three-track EP as a joint effort with the label’s owner Theus Mago. This Mexican producer comes off the back of a similarly hectic year, most recently releasing the ‘Inertials’ single and the acclaimed ‘Ella’ EP, featuring remixes from Arthur Johnson and Il Est Vilaine. This collaborative EP is a masterful blend of styles, merging Local Suicide’s characteristic catchy techno-disco sound with the darker notes typical of Theus Mago. His signature style is that of freeform, synth-driven, moody techno that brings together intricately interwoven influences from across the spectrum of electronic music, providing a perfect foil to Local Suicide’s infectious rhythms.


Fledgling electronic live act UNDERHER have released their third official EP, ‘Mercy’. Due for release on their own imprint IAMHER, the package includes two original UNDERHER tracks, ‘Mercy’ and ‘Strung’, plus remixes from French production duo The Dualz, Greek Hotworkz label boss Harri Agnel, upcoming Austrian producer dörfler, and New Yorker Allies For Everyone.

Λίγα λόγια για τον Νίκο Κομνηνό:

Το να «μεταδώσεις» το Νίκο Κομνηνό γραπτώς δεν είναι απλή υπόθεση. Δεν είναι απλό να κλείσεις σε λέξεις καθημερινές εκπομπές μιας ολόκληρης 30ετίας, μεσάνυχτα ή μεσημέρια γεμάτα καλά φιλτραρισμένους ήχους, μουσική πληροφορία, αφιερώματα και το πάθος ενός ανθρώπου για μουσική και επικοινωνία, στο οποίο είναι ταγμένες τουλάχιστον τρεις γενιές μέχρι τώρα. Πίσω από το οξύμωρο της βραχνής χροιάς της φωνής του -αυστηρή και ρομαντική συνάμα- υπάρχει ένας τύπος αυστηρός τόσο με τον εαυτό του όσο και με τους συνεργάτες του, αλλά και μια ρομαντική φύση που κάθε φορά που πλησιάζει μικρόφωνο γίνεται εκείνος ο παθιασμένος πιτσιρικάς που ξεκίνησε εκπομπές παράνομα τη δεκαετία του ‘80 με τους φίλους του στην πολυκατοικία του πατρικού του και που άλλαξαν τα όνοματά τους για να μην καρφωθούν στην αστυνομία. Είναι ίσως ο μοναδικός «πειρατής» του ραδιοφώνου που δεν λοξοδρόμησε στην πορεία, παραμένοντας πιστός στο μέσο και τη μουσική, στις αξίες του και τον ακροατή. Η δόξα, τα χρήματα, η αναγνωρισιμότητα και τα «τυχερά του επαγγέλματος» δεν τον συγκίνησαν ποτέ, όσο τον συγκινούν τα «δυσεύρετα πια» καλά τραγούδια και αυτή η μυσταγωγία και η οικειότητα συνάμα της επικοινωνίας με το κοινό που μόνο στο ραδιόφωνο μπορείς να έχεις. Ο πιτσιρικάς πειρατής των ‘80’s, ήταν από τους πρώτους που η ελεύθερη ραδιοφωνία έφερε στον FM100 της εποχής Κούβελα στη Θεσσαλονίκη και εν συνεχεία στον FM101, το πρώτο νεανικό ραδιόφωνο από το οποίο «αποφοίτησαν» μεγάλες καριέρες του σήμερα. Από τότε μέχρι σήμερα, ο ίδιος έχει βάλει την προσωπική του σφραγίδα ως δ/ντης προγράμματος σε τρία ραδιόφωνα που άφησαν εποχή στη Θεσσαλονίκη και όχι μόνο: 88μισό/Μύλος, Republic 100.3 και OFFRADIO – το δημοφιλέστερο online ραδιόφωνο με έδρα τη Θεσσαλονίκη, φανατικό κοινό σε όλη την Ελλάδα και ακροατές σε όλο τον πλανήτη.

Lou – Do U Want It

Lou 4

‘’Do U Want It’’ is the way Lou chooses to present herself in the wide audience. She loves to speak through electronic music and her playful voice. Thoughts on paper converted into sounds, in parts with the help of the infamous Lefteris Kalabakas aka Lee Burton. Pop in all it’s beauty. Electronic music through the eyes of a young and determined to succeed girl. A small taste of what her forthcoming debut album will sound like.

But words can hardly describe in detail all those that the needle on the record will reveal. Be sure to keep an eye on this one.

‘Do U Want It’ is out today in all major digital record stores.
