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!
The ROTATION DJ Roster:
Alexees (Trouble / Jazz.GR)
Black Athena (Jo & Costis - AIR FM/Cloud City/Trouble/Fantastic Vol 2)
Bomba Energia Soundsystem (VM Radio/ B-Music)
Δημητρης ( Synch - Θρι Σιξτι - Φ α b r i k a )
