- Social Waste
Social Waste were founded in 1999 in Heraklion, Crete. Seventeen-year-old students back then, they immediately attracted the attention of active member, the leading Greek hip hop group at the time and became members of their music production team “Freestyle Productions”. Bd Foxmoor (Michalis Mytakides), the frontman of active member, said back then refereeing to Social Waste in one of his interviews: “I only have positive things to say about the new generation…About Social Waste from Crete for example,17-year-olds that would be worth a fortune abroad.”
After years in the scene, numerous songs and lives all around Greece, in 2004 they left Freestyle Productions. Xray (Nikitas Nils Klint), ex-member of active member and current of Rodes described Social Waste as one of the “most complete groups” in the Greek hip hop scene in one of his interviews.
Due to studies, work and unemployment, as well as other personal encounters, Social Waste left the Greek hip hop scene, and remained in silence until…today. In November 2013 they released their new album “At Utopia’s fiesta”.
Because in these times, no one should stay silent…
In their live appearances they combine the special socio-political lyrics of hip hop together with Mediterranean vibes and instruments.
- Planet of Zeus
are a heavy rock band from Athens, Greece. They have been around since 2000, playing extensively throughout their home country, just about anywhere they could, ranging from house parties to stadiums. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following, which exceeds Greece’s geographical borders. After 5 consecutive European tours and several high profile festivals (Bloodstock etc), Planet of Zeus were the main support band at Clutch’s 2015 Psychic Warfare European Tour.
Planet of Zeus have released 3 albums. “Eleven the hard way”, was released in April 2008, through Casket Music/ Copro Records (UK). The album, although a debut, received great reviews from magazines, such as Metal Hammer and Kerrang and even Bruce Dickinson featured it on his BBC radio
show. The sophomore album “Macho Libre”, released in May 2011, through B-Otherside Records, was the album, that established the band as a major act in Greece and started creating a European buzz
around Planet of Zeus. Since then, their two official music videos, “Leftovers” and “Vanity suit” have become classics. With their third album,“Vigilante”(2014, ihaveadrum records),the band upped the ante and created their own distinct blend of riff heavy, groove laden rock n roll.Group membersBabis Papanikolaou-Vox & Guitars
