Christos Mavridis is a many of many guises. He's done an EP with our friends „House is OK“, some Tech House on labels like Noir Music, Kindisch or Get Physical.
Right now he's preparing a tier-1 Techno career, but wait...
...just in time he delivers a dancefloor-heavy House Music EP on „Smile for a while“ showing off his wide sound horizon. Seriously influenced by Josh Brent's Schatrax stuff and guys like XDB or Makam these tunes are still distinctively his very own.
„Black Pearls“ is that perfect, deep, technoid House Monster that clocks in at 128bpm and still is deeper than deep. „Era Of Consciousnes“ surprises with some Disco sample slickness, the right tune if you wanna dream yourself back onto some summerish beach...
Phillip Lauer & Gerd Janson alias „Tuff City Kids“ deliver a tribute to Groover Klein Remix. Groover Who? Yes, THAT guy – resident in Mannheim's legendary MILK! Club boasting Happy hardcore, Breakbeatz, and lots of Ragga-influenced Jungle Music in the early 90s. So it's pretty clear what this remix is about – bringing back the RAVE!
The EP is closed by an hypnotic Tribal tune named „Down Low.“ Some heavy Toms, Snares and shakers goin' on and the biggest Air horn since „The Horn Track.“
