a project where true underground house masters lay down beatz and vibes on special back to back sessions.
your host Boycott sharing his wheels of steel with Athens cream of the crop.
this is house extravaganza...
its been about a year since I've recorded a mix of my own and this is quite a special one as i have been hosted by my brother in beatz and life on his monthly digital airwaves extravaganza. for the last episode of 2013 your host is doing a Subbed Out tribute mix aired live during the first hour of December's show.
Subbed Out monthly show on Paranoise web radio is hosted by Runner and represents the finest in house, bass & techno riddims from London, Detroit, New York & Berlin. the radio show is complemented with specialist nights comprising guests from abroad ever so often. Runner currently represents Athens at Dimensions festival in Croatia and can be seen live at select nights in the city's favourite boom box six d.o.g.s
we're back in 2014 with more back to back mixes featuring top notch artists, plus a Blackball live gig in one of Athens hottest sound systems...stay tuned!
new season underway, plenty newcomers plus a couple of special returns in the pipeline. kicking off proceedings i was joined by a like minded man sharing common grounds on beatz, recipees and life..our last back to back session at Habeat Record Store in April 2013 was seminal so i thought we should revisit this idea and put it on tape...
Lefteris Birlakis aka Mackenzie is the owner of Habeat Record Store downtown Athens. since its opening back in 2011, Habeat Records
is spreading the love for vinyl records and electronic music keeping
focused on that four to the floor sound of House and Techno while
hosting weekly guest DJs in one off events. he recently joined the Sleazy Beats & Dirty Vibes crew with Zorz and Slydex, presenting their unique afternoon events in Athens..
we're back in the Blackball HQs for this one which means no more borders and barriers in terms of music...to spice things up, divert from the last 3 live shows and get back on track with the original purpose of this show i chose to host a man who's carrying more than 25yrs of musical experience on his back, a friend from way back joining me and laying down beatz from the past present and future... in true space age style i present K.K. from the infamus Otaku Soundsystem..

a male unit of
advanced age currently operating in Athens, Greece. developed as a leisure
model at first, on early stages he was trained to work with humans for hybrid
group operations - with little success, most notably with teen-pop idols HorrorVacui. he was consequently re-oriented to join the entertainment industry and
soon forced himself in places of power. at the same time though he developed a
taste for rogue rhythmic experiments that forced him to seek and find new
fellow conspirators Dura and Chick (both alleged humans) they formed Otaku
Soundsystem, a team exercising in exploratory excursions in club territory. this remains to the day his longest standing active co-operation, although the
group's sporadic appearances have slowly pushed them to the nether regions of
Plasteline mega-corp as a hitman, disguised under the innocent-looking moniker
of Mr. Bolek / Mr. Lolek (ed: still disputed which one). in the meantime he
worked as prompter, opium den owner, accountant, ginger-ale merchant and dog
trainer, eventually participating in The Zakulas (a league of tricksters with a
very short lifespan) and top-class high art project Opera di Bestia.
self-imposed few years' isolation period spent working in a ship's machine room
(see: Funkraum23), he joined the secretive order Operation MindFuck. functioning as a silent ally, occasionally activated only for under-the-radar,
one-off missions in various guises, he's currently training assassins for the
cult. in his spare time, he's rumoured to develop sonic weapons of mass
destruction hinted on ancient and apocryphal texts. interestingly, he's also
involved in Citizen Protection programs, although the nature of his duties can
only be surmised with dread.
as advertised Blackball Nights returned @ Spiti Coctail Bar on the 30th of March for the monthly residency... this time around i was joined by an iconic figure of Athens Dance Scene...Dimitri Papaioannou, electronic music producer and DJ residing in Italy for more than a decade, co-founder and artistic director of the award winning Synch Festival, co-owner of the late 360 record store in Athens, member and creative director of Fabrika Sonic Arts Studios, and co-owner and AR manager of Spiti Coctail Bar ... also he's a bianconerro lover and comes from the beautiful Greek island of longevity .... need i say more?
first show of the year and we change the pace once again. Blackball is going live at one of Athens hottest venues Spiti cocktail bar. your host joined by the Bomba Energia Sound System boys.. here's an extract of back to back pressure..
we're going live once again..we even respect our friends so much that we chose a venue offering some of the best coctails in town... announcing the Blackball Nights Monthly Sessions at Spiti Cocktail Bar kicking off proceedings on the 11th of Jan with the full combo of the Bomba Energia Sound System (Antoine Catelan, Rusty Brown and Anthony K) joining your host on the 1s and 2s followed by the 22nd of Feb with lineup TBA soon...extracts of the nights will be posted on the blog as always...
in the meantime, as this season has been oddly quiet on the music front so far here's an exclusive mix i did for Paranoise Radio hosted at the weekly guest dj section on Saturday 15th of December
finally this is a last minute reminder for the ROTATION Xmass Eve Bash to be held at 6 D.O.G.S. downtown Athens...this time bigger and better than ever with 16 of our resident rotating djs taking turns at the decks in shared and back to back sessions with a very Christmassy spirit! seasons greetings to all...
fourth season down the line and what a start. i'm joined by a unique friend, a femme extraordinaire who has been in the spotlight over the last years for a few good reasons. a musician leaving in Athens Giganta studied classical music since the age of 12, and continued as a piano & flute player. she has participated in classical choirs as a singer, performed with a woodwind band for 2 years, explored jazz music with different bands, played as a keyboardist in many alternative indie bands, and finished her studies as a music teacher. she has been introduced in the dance scene as Manekinekod back in 2008, followed by the project Magnitophono with noumerous releases and collaborations to date. an RBMA participant in Madrid 2011, nowadays she appears under the Giganta moniker, performing live on various venues in the Greek capital while developing her mixing skills as part of the Rotation roster and throwing unique sets on special
we spent quite some time together lately on vacation where i got her unique vibe and deep love for music, plus her recent performances have been top notch so i had to bring her in to do this seasons opening show....and i have to say, she's definately coming back in the future.. catch her Madly Radio Show Thursdays (20:00-22:00) on Paranoiseradio .
in true Blackball style for this last show of the season we flip the script and get on a different note offering you two hour-long mixes of diverse soundscapes, what i think is the perfect soundtrack for your lazy hazy summer days!
part A comes courtesy of Core Urban Shopping Store, an ambient mix for those late night - early morning hours. James Enox taking a leftfield electronica approach on the 1s and 2s.
part B is a special Balearic session provided by Kasseta Records. each and every track in there is a jewel, so sit back, relax and enjoy a selection of monster tunes mixed by a maestro of this sound.
once again i'd like to show my appreciation to all artists who joined me and contributed on the show during the last three years. we're taking a couple of months off and will be back with a fresh series hosting cream of the crop underground house artists.
on with the series with a man representing a trio, sort of like their front man joining me on this two plus hour sound-scape. it stroked me some time ago when i listened to him and his clan spinning "unheard of" house music at a local gig. as i found out they were banging out funk records in such a tempo, with such a style, it sounded like house! now that was unique, so much i had to have them on the show.
Bomba Energia Soundsystem started out on 2005 between two very good friends
with completely different music preferences. Rusty Brown can be described as
the radical of the duo since he is much closer to more electronic types
of music such as acid house, electro disco, early Chicago house as well as nu
disco, 70's boogie, and 80's electro. on the other hand Antoine, the eldest with musical preferences varying from new wave and rock'n' roll
to native African, Caribbean rock, kraut and 60's swings.
after three years of live performances on VM radio shows another very
important member was added to the team Anthony K. being the youngest of
them all didn't play a part at all since he adapted his style easily
playing deep Afro beat, Latin and managed to deliver a very unique black
when those three friends met and performed a live set they created a very
unique musical experience through their different musical influences, an explosive highly energetic feeling, the Bomba Energia Soundsystem was formed.
we're coming to a close for the season as summer is just around the corner. keep your eyes peeled for a couple of special mixes to conclude the third season of the Blackball Show. stay tuned..
i've been considering the amount of tunes played during the years as this show is progressing ... hilarious.one said you've got the history of house in here, past present and future! cannot disagree!
this time around i had another long time friend to join me on the wheels of steel. a man that played a key role on establishing the d2 legacy in the capital about twelve years ago, a man that deserves respect for his course and achievements over the years.
Christos Martinis aka Funkslut was born in Volos, Greece in 1973 and was raised in
Munich, Germany where he also studied and partly built his career. as an audio
engineer and music producer he's counting numerous projects, some of
which are still echoing proudly. holding a Bachelor of Arts in
Contemporary Music (Southern Cross University Australia), in 1998 he
initiates and participates in the opening of SAE Athens, the well known
Creative Media Institute for which he currently works as the Head of
Academic Resources. on the parallel
he establishes Plasteline in Munich and Athens a company first aimed in
organizing performance events of electronic music nature. as of 2006
the project gains a strict recording / publishing character and since
then counts numerous releases from artists around the globe. as a DJ he adores most kinds of house and techno styles, which he passionately and persistently represents throughout his sets. as he confessed, he had to sit down and sort his shit for a couple of weeks prior to the show, which is what this project is all about. digging the crates and coming up with tunes we'd love to share with the world. quite a few leftfield beats some deep techno vibes plus a couple of classics, this episode has it all! as for the mix itself, solid as a rock... download in glorious 320
after a month of silence we return with a bang.. hosting one of the immovable figures in Athens underground dance was a task on its own...in fact i had to ask for help to get this show going...so i have to show my appreciation to Zak who was the man to literally grab my guest and drag him down to the Blackball HQs...as expected, i got the full combo so u got Kyvellos, Zak and myself on a two and a half hour back to back extravaganza..
Kyvellos official introduction in Athens dance scene dates back to the late 80s when he was part of the classic Flavour Crew alongside Alexees, Zak, Culture Mark and Brother Tee taking place at the Lycabetus. into the 90s he maintained a residency at the now legendary Groovin in Athens while also spinning his records at various dungeons in the capital. later on he became a resident at the infamous Limousine parties at the roof top bar of Athens Hilton. nowadays he's the proud owner and curator of Kasseta Record Store, perhaps the only vinyl record boutique in Athens.
its always a pleasure to host top dogs in the show...together we provided this Blackball future retro...enjoy
"A new night comprising a rotating list of residents dedicated to bringing the best in underground sounds to Athens with love; made by and for this city's party people"
Beginning on Saturday the 10th of March on the recently pumped up sound system of the Bar space of Six D.O.G.S. we cordially invite you to our new monthly party; as a group we have been kicking this idea about for a bit and as you can see from the list of participants we envisage being a part of this project, all share in a sense of quality underground music but each has their own personal take on it, giving what we think will be a unique quality to an across the board, friends and family type night.
There are no headliners - this is all of our night, and out of the pot of ROTATION residents 5 different DJs will play each month with those names only being announced on the night to the public!
We'd love you to come down and support in person on the night; what we really hope to see is grass roots support for a local team from a local community of music lovers!
So far there are two dates locked in for ROTATION: Saturday March 10th & Saturday April 21st but the ultimate goal is to graduate to the gig stage and make this a monthly standard party of big proportions in the near future; Athens DJs Stand Up!

i've been chasing him down for ages. distance was an issue as he resides up north but we finally managed to get together for this long awaited episode. it was a pleasure to host long time friend, fellow compatriot and one of my hometown's old dogs... DimDJ started spinning records back in 1992. his influences cover a wider than wide range of musical genres from 80's acid house to 90's techno-rave and ambient all the way to skate-punk and new wave-electro. in 1998 he started experimenting on music production resulting in his first track (under his Magnet moniker) released as part of the Regroovable Market compilation comprising of Greek electronic music artists on Rubber Recordings. moving on, from 2001 to 2006 he was running the label Relax Records and the project Epidemic Elements with partner in crime Dj PiCi. in 2007 DimDJ together with Mijo started the Audio Atlas project. three years later the duo got releases on Chicago based Mathematics Recordings. DimDJ is currently running the Space Channel on Ustream broadcasting on random dates and times. as if all the above is not enough, he is still developing his love to draw and design under the James Enox alias. all in all a multi-talented, versatile man. in this mix we deliver a crossover sound between the leftfield, 80s/90s acid house, jack house, deep & smooth, whatever new sounds like classic, all with a twist. this is Blackball avant garde...
born on the cusp of two decades so musically rich that undoubtedly growing up in that era helped build an appreciation for all forms of that which we call dance music, the enigmatic artist known as Thomey Bors truly came to existence on embarking upon a temporary move to one of the most significant musical motherlands to attend university.
on returning to Greece having completed studies in the UK he took to bedroom production and DJing and teamed up with long term friend and collaborator Petit Bear, another Athens based selector and regular on the capital’s low end. together the pair formed the Beatnicks, a two-way stab at bringing low end, bass, glitchy hip hop and what was briefly touted as wonky to a tightly constructed club mixed setting. the duo quickly found an appreciative audience and went on to feature at nights alongside the likes of Cinnaman, Jay Scarlett and Mark Pritchard as well as guesting at the debut Cloud City concept night alongside London hip hop head Paul White and Washington DCs producer and MC Pursuit Grooves.
last time we enjoyed a back to back session with le baronThomey Bors I had to watch my car being towed away in the middle of a country road…so I played it safe and hosted his reappearance on the show in the Blackball headquarters. had to do it anyway as he’s churning out his own production at an alarming rate while varying the genres, influences, bpms and style of execution as he hones his craft. check the disparate, spaced out beauty of Synthetic Junk, the hypnotic drive of The Path or the Zarpa (to be released on This Side Music) as well as the old school influence of Celestial Beings and be prepared to be impressed at the depth, range and signature sound that defines his music.
was about time I made some effort to get this project going once again. loads of traveling, a bit of well deserved time off and we’re on for another adventurous year. so its finally here. Blackball new season, fresh lineup, underground house masters for your ears. kick starting with a man I met for a few drinks some months back, turns out he’s a low profile, cool, like minded chap with serious skills on the wheels. spanning over two hours, the mix we produced is tight to say the least.
Lee Burton aka Liberto was born in Athens in the mid 80's. from the age of 9 he knew that music was his big passion. as a teenager, after years of music studies, he got involved with music playing as a guitarist and bassist for various prog. rock, jazz rock / fusion groups- projects , composing music and collecting records.
these early influences would later evolve in to a passion for house and techno , electronic music production and djing. however, it was at the age of 19, when he began making his first tracks and playing at local parties as a dj. after a few years and some changes on his music character he found himself releasing his debut album "Lullaby" as "Liberto" on the Athens based label Klik records, in addition to an ep called "Contra" on Klik's sub label "Nuevo", taking great feedback from the Greek and international press and putting his name on the map of electronic music.
in 2007, Liberto & Mihalis Safras teamed up for the first time, producing a unique style rather different from their own. they released various e.p's and remixes for labels such as Trapez, Cusp, Zenit and Syndikaat and their sound earned the appreciation of the modern techno scene. meanwhile, the duo launched "Material" record label, releasing techno music from great producers like Mark Broom and Lee Van Dowski, among others. material's releases were played and charted by some of the best djs in the scene.
beginning in radio production at the tender age of 18 via her then university station, Miss Black Athena quickly began her ascent into underground music expertise, with an unquenchable thirst for new music and old. having worked in record shops, for labels, in promotion and dabbling in music journalism it wasn't long before she teamed up with her partner in crime and began putting on parties around London, before an unplanned move to the Greek capital where her momentum gathered and the Black Athena brand was born. typically English she is obsessive about music, obnoxious, and tends towards drunken hooliganism - however her knowledge, and quest for more knowledge sets her aside from your usual brawling bar room thug and places her on a particular pedestal of charm! you can catch her DJing around and about the Greek capital, hosting the Cloud City Pop-Up parties, playing twice weekly on Athens International Radio and helping out at the 360 record Store in Gazi; the timing was perfect for Jo to join me as this was the final episode of the series for the season...not your typical friday night extravaganza!! pulling out tracks that were sampled as hell back in the early days to shape the sound we call house music, some classics plus some fresh beats to sum up a year of endless turntable madness...
Bodj began to collect music at the age of 12 after being put on to rock & punk by friends who would kindly compile tapes for him. by 15 he discovered a talent for the art of graffiti prompting him to begin collecting old school hip hop, disco and early electro. his passion for b-boy art forms eventually led him one step further and by 2000 Bodj began to play hip hop through house to a soulful style for friends at small venues around and about... early 2005 Bodj took classes in sound engineering and electronic music production at the SAE institute of technology, the same period saw an explosion of the tech-house scene in which he immersed himself fully. influenced by his studies and a new breed of house/techno producers Bodj was driven to further develop his own skills and cement a style based around house & techno and their variable sub-genres…his impeccable mixing style and technique has made him one of the hottest Athenian djs for the time being,with appearances at respected Greek venues & festivals such as Entechno festival,European Music Day,Six Dogs,Loop just to name a few..Bodj is also releasing music in labels such as diaphan , percusa, monique musique etc, with more new stuff coming soon …
prepare to hear more of him in the near future..in the meantime here is the man's contribution on the show...two plus hours of back to back house extravaganza..
his moto is "Music is not a format, it's freedom, amusement, mood and spreading love". so, under that moto, he still makes music that expresses him. as he says: "The quality and the mood of the final result is the one that counts and not the genre/style that you are playing". after 18 years as a DJ he has played the most of the music genres like Drum & Bass, Breaks, Hip Hop, Soul, RNB, Techno, House, Dub, Disco, Trip Hop, Jazz. and this can be heard on his releases and productions. Thodoris has played at the biggest clubs in Greece like Dybbuk, Cavo Paradiso, Animal, W Club, Tango, Monroe, Block33. he has also played abroad in places like Germany and United Kingdom. currently, he is resident at the Deepsoul Collective nights together with Theo Tag, G Spice and Kosta Tee, running weekly in downtown Athens. stretching over two hours, this show has proven to be a nicely drawn back to back mix between your host and a man of many milestones. respect for coming down and gracing the wheels of the Blackball show..
Stathis Kalatzis is hidden behind the Mr.Statik moniker. born in 1978, he grew up in Volos, where his musical influences go back to 1990 and the rising hardcore/breakbeat scene. several parties, moving to Athens to study Political Science at Panteion University and a firm embrace of techno music lead to the form of Improvize- a mobile party with fellow dj Chevy aiming at bringing a fresh sound of techno and house in all its forms. during 2003 he performed in more gigs and club nights, and had the chance to make a wonderful trip to Cape Town with the Red Bull Music Academy. in the beginning of 2005 he forms the Mud Max project alongside amigo Motek (first releases out on Balkon and Ware). after the second half of 2006, Mr Statik starts to work solo as well, signing his first eps in labels such as Karloff, Stock5 and Octopus with a variety of tracks which embrace his moodier and atmospheric side...2007 finds him djing between his local residency at Fetisch and gigs abroad (with Monegros Festival and Tresor standing out as highlights) whereas in 2008 more releases and international appearances are on the way alongside a signing to UK label Immigrant and Berlin’s Rotary Cocktail and Perplex. 2009 kicks off with a series of rmxs, further appearances across Europe and a signing to Bpitch Control’s sister label Memo. in 2010 he continues working heavily on rmxing duties for various artists/labels, while preparing his Bpitch Control comeback and touring between Germany, France and Spain. he signs his first ep for Berlin based Mo’s Ferry released in autumn and signs Sinphony (feat. The Boy) to the upcoming Werkschau compilation on Bpitch Control. for the 10th Episode in the series Mr Statik joins your host on a 5 hour back to back session!!! this...a Blackball Marathon...
Zak has been active in the Greek club scene since the late 80's, fortunate enough to live the house burst in the 90's throughout the last decade. his beloved residencies were at Amsterdam Cafe, a hip place in the heart of Athens with an obscure crowd that established the dj culture in cafe's, Camel Club late nigh marathons, Grooving basement dirt funk days, the glossy Limousine Ozon parties at the Hilton Hotel rooftop and the Big Chill sessions in Naxos as well as the Enchanted Garden in the UK and the neo disco sound of BBluz cafe with guests such as Todd Terje & The Unabombers. by mid 90's he was putting on events with his buddies Dimitris, Alexees & Tassos as Flavour & Intrafunk with Dj Harvey, Paper Recordings, Simon Lee of Faze Action , Jazzanova & Tim Love Lee(Tummy Touch). his sound signature if it must be tagged is Leftfield House & Disco, an off center sound but that's not all. His passion for jazz, funk & fusion found a home on Jazz fm 102,4 and later on Cool fm 98,7. one day during his show on Jazz with James Mason on the decks he got a call from a surprised listener asking "who's playing this man?" ... "Who's asking mate?" he replies,. that was Mark S, a dear friend since then that introduced him to production tricks. Fiona M was already there, all the way, a driving force that dared. Coda Recordings label and studio was soon a dream made true. the Jazz fm basement was now taken over and revamped into the Coda Records HQ. Coda was dealing mostly with Greek talented producers and that was the plan, but life's got some twists & turns that you can't see coming your way, meeting up & hanging out with Paul McCartney was one of them. right before Paul's "Back in the U.S. Tour" in 2002 a promotional CD with remixes of Wings' tracks was put out and Zak reworked "Coming Up" a tough disco number, then flew to LA, backstage for the concert. that's when he realized what Rock n Roll is about !!!
nowdays Zak is a bit like David Mancuso, not leaving home unless there's a serious reason or sound system and i'm proud to say the Blackball show was one. occasionally he does The President Hotel Penthhouse 21 nights with Mr G, never scheduled and this is a mystery kids! took some time for this show to happen but it was worth the wait..this is the first time i shared my turntables with the man..no need to say more...just...press play
quite a unique show this time as Mr Jazz GR joined me for a three hour boogie down house mix... alexees has been roaming the Athenian dance music circuit for more than a decade, after sowing his wild oats as a student in the States in the early nineties where he presented a radio show on WMUC 88.1 FM in the DC area and made some rare appearances at bars such as the Eighteenth Street Lounge and State of the Union.
in Athens, he started the Flavour crew along with Zak (featured in the next episode), Dimitri K, Brother T and Culture Mark Stephenson. they maintained a mid-week residency at the legendary Groovin and provided the soundtrack for the trailblazing Limousine parties on top of the Athens Hilton.
nowadays he expresses his taste for jazz, selecting records from his expanding collection of vinyl for the Jazz.gr podcast. he also prefers to get into Trouble, an event that he runs with Costis Black Athena which is devoted to the boogie sound of the late seventies and early eighties. this episode is clearly influenced by that boogie sound fused with some timeless house jems..enjoy
and we're back to the base for the next episode of the series..this time long time friend Theo Lazos joined me for a two hour back to back mix...dub was the order of the day for this show, either in house or techno form, quite naturally as this is a major influence on the mans sound portrayed in his performances throughout the capital...over the last years Lazos worked hard to perfect his skills getting some major bookings including a Sub:conscious gig along side Mike Parker , a guest slot in epta ogdoa festival and a conspicuous warm up for Jeff Mills during his recent gig in Athens. watch out for future appearances in some of Athens underground dungeons..
this was the first show out of Athens, quite an adventurous one to say the least...after a long drive up north, a broken tightener in the car's engine and some late night towage, Blackball managed to reach its final destination, the Beatnicks HQs. joined on location by local people and others migrating from Athens, the show kicked off with some delay but stretched for over three and a half hours as Thomey Bors, Petit Bear and myself took turns to provide a full on "history of house" mix. Numerous classics combined with some hot off the press numbers covering over two decades of the sound we love and share..
being low profile to the bone doesn't mean the Beatnicks, are not active in the local music scene. Petit Bear is running the biweekly Fantastic Vol.2 nights with Jo Black Athena while updating his 45mins blogspot and performing in selected gigs. Thomey Bors is concentrated on his studio work lately producing some unique and wicked beats. Keep your eyes peeled for future tracks and appearances of the duo..
once again a massive thanx to the 3well massive for their excellent hospitality..it was a joyful excursion to be remembered...and repeated for sure!!
2010 was the year the d2 nights came to a close completing a remarkable adventure as we both have been heading away from our ongoing dnb excursions of the last decade .. special events that drew the attention of the unsuspected ear (and eye on some occasions) left a stamp on ourselves and the crowds of what we called future soul..this show portrays the duo's progression on different roads and yet again the merge on beatz we love on a different note as myself together with my main man the Runner spread some wonderful across the board all styles house vibes for the 5th episode in the series...
Runner has been anything but quiet lately getting booked on numerous events to portray his bass heavy sound while hosting guest nights such as Untitled, Subbed Out and Bloc Party. Next up is the Mutant House night where the d2 make a one off reappearance together with man of the moment Altered Natives..this episode is quite simply a taste of things to come...
