The Greek dance scene at Cultural Center «Hellenic Cosmos» on the 5th of September! http://www.entechnoathens.gr/
Through the course of the past few years, the new generation of Greek underground dance producers has accomplished something that still remains a difficult feat to the majority of the mainstream artists of the same country. To make a breakthrough in the international dance arena, through releases in renowned foreign labels and gigs in the most esteemed clubs and festivals around the world. What is also noteworthy is the fact that a great portion of the aforementioned artists have more bookings abroad than in the frontiers of their own country. It’s a fact that Greece possesses a vibrant dance scene that still starves for spaces and locations that can promote their work and their aesthetics. Locations that live up to an alternative mentality, technically apt and familiar to those who refuse to forget and those who crave to know the «rave» aspect of a party.
Apart from the artists who are still based in Athens, many djs/producers have already relocated abroad in cities like London and Berlin, establishing an even closer relationship with the international dance scene and putting together a bio that impresses with gigs at well-known festivals like Movement (Detroit/U.S.A.), Sonar (Barcelona/Spain), Εxit (Novi Sad/ Serbia), Winter Μusic Conference (Miami/U.S.A.) and many more.
Therefore it’s obvious beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it is time for the Greek dance scene to receive its kiss of life and to be promoted in the way that it truly deserves, as a unity and not fragmented. This is the basic motive behind the initiative of Panayiotis Pilafas, a new music talent from New York, and Nektarios Ioannidis, the one of the founders of the team reSOLUTE, who after a really successful event series in New York, decided to organize a 36 hour dance event, in their birth place, under the title “ένTechno”, on the 5th of September at the Cultural Center «Hellenic Cosmos». The confirmed line-up this far, includes Argy, GummiHz, K.atou, Cj Jeff, Leon Segka, Mr.Statik, Lemos, Kreon, Tolis Q, while headliners of the party are Ellen Allien and Wighnomy Brothers.
Of course, ένTechno’s programme will be enriched during the following months with added artists, projections, workshops, e.t.c.
