Grey Skies

Greek musician Elias Smilios presents his first release as Grey Skies – a project that sets out to create wonderfully bent landscapes of mysterious worlds.

YEAR is a fully realised concept throughout its presentation from the music to artwork and video pieces that accompany its release. Inspired by misty scenes of nature, YEAR creates a transcendental atmosphere that echoes Smilios’ escapist tendencies.

His musicianship has developed from his involvement in the local indie scene of Thessaloniki in Greece.

As Grey Skies the artist transitions into a more blurred and beautiful world of organic ambient, blending electronic and analogue synthesis with his playing of guitar and bass alongside the alto saxophone talent of Thanasis Sampaziotis Macubert. The sax is used with a centering fluidity amongst intricately layered elements lifting intensity along with skittering IDM inspired beat patterns throughout YEAR.

Christian Löffler

German DJ, producer and artist Christian Löffler has been a driving and influential force in the experimental techno and electronic scene since his first appearance around 2008. 

Emotion and harmony are key words to understand Christian Löffler’s work; they somehow help us perceive his characteristic autobiographical and melancholic approach to techno.

Löffler started to play music at the age of 14. Living in a secluded region and lacking a musical surrounding, he had to teach himself the essentials of making electronic music. For a long time he developed his own deep and moving sound, colored with a melancholic undertone – music for the soul and for the body. He recalls a variety of music styles he listened to as a child and as a teenager that were highly influential to his own development as a musician.

In 2019, he released his new album, Graal (Prologue), a gorgeous slice of electronic, ambient and techno which finds him in new place writing music and it feels fresh and new. The release follows two well-received LPs, Mare and A Forest, both on Ki-Records. It also serves as a prelude to a second companion album to be released before the end of the year.

In 2021 he released his exceptional album ‘Parallels: Shellac Reworks’ via Deutsche Grammophon. The German conceptual artist and composer reworked tracks by some of the greatest composers who ever lived, including J.S. Bach, Beethoven and Chopin. He steped away from well-trodden paths to create his own interpretations of classical greats, opening up a welcome dialogue between past and present.

His unique live dj set is now available for stream in 4K resolution.
