Innersense is a thriving organization, that sits behind the most powerful drum and bass events in Athens over the latter two decades. They drew our attention after inviting the legendary LTJ Bukem this September. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it to the party, however, we did succeed in making contact with Innersense. Our collaboration kicks in with this article, as following LTJ Bukem, our partners from Greece are now looking towards a fundamental neurofunk project. Headliners at the next big drum and bass party in Athenes are the Dutch trio Black Sun Empire.
The event will be held on the 12th of November at XYTHPIO Theater (Athens). The capacity of the venue is 700 visitors, which may not be enough, considering the calibre of the main headliners. For two decades BSE turned into an equivalent for quality drum and bass. The project's early releases completely twisted the concept of neurofunk, not to mention all the big names in the game who have signed on their label Blackout Music. Earlier this summer, Black Sun Empire visited Sofia, delivering one of the most powerful and energetic sets we've heard during the last couple of years. We expect that their Greek visit will be no less successful.
With all the respect we have for Disphonia, as well as the calibre of the project, it will be hard to label them as warm-up artists. We'd rather think of the Greek duo as a second headliner for the event. Kostas and George have since long developed an image of a highly-regarded duo on the neurofunk scene. The two artists have numerous released tracks for the biggest labels in this manner, while their music drops by almost every big party across Europe. Their last EP for Red Light Recordings reminded everyone what these two are capable of putting together, and when it comes to their frequent stage appearances- they have placed them among fans' of heavy electronic music favourite artists.
The list of artists continues with the talanted locals Baste and Mak-T, performing in a joint back-to-back session. Junior SP will represent the organizors from Innersense, making the artists responsible for the event's opening and closure three. Tickets for the event are already available, their price is 10 euro now (12 euros on the entrance in the day of the event, if the gig is not Sold Out). Heavy-artillery Custommade Soundsystem will be responsible for the sound in the venue, yet another reason for us to inform you about the party.
