M.A.T.E. is a three-member band (live electronics, vocals, live drumming) based in Thessaloniki, Greece. Τheir compositions are a meeting of analog and digital sound, where vocals, synthesizers and samples react to the beat of an acoustic drum set with an electronic feel, based on the last decade’s dub, drum’n’bass, trip hop and dubstep sounds. Their discography already counts two self-released albums, “Meetings Along the Edge” (2013) and “Transitions” (2016), recorded and produced in EDGE studio.
MARY’S FLOWER SUPERHEAD
Genres Indie rock, Post Punk
Were formed back in the summer of 2003 in Thessaloniki. Their sound was originally influenced by the American indie punk scene and this was reflected on their first titular release (Mary’s flower Superhead, Polytropon records) in 2006. Four years later, they went on to release SWAY (Archangel records, 2010). They had a dynamic presence at the Europavox festival (Clermont Ferrand, France) in 2010, and extensive tours in the Balkans and Greece. Two years later they release the album Digesting the Animal (Polytropon records, 2012). Their new album is “Wealth” (Inner Ear Records, 2018).
An allencompassing art project which flourished in Los Angeles and Ibiza, but has its roots in Athens. The project is an attempt to decipher and embrace chaos, drawing inspiration from Greek mythology and cosmos. A cinematic dark soundscape with heavily layered electronic sounds married with traditional instruments like the santour. IOTAPHI opened for Muse at the Ejekt Festival in Athens. The debut EP “Kloudland” is out now, with the track Hypertopos produced by Daniel Heath.
