Premiere: Stevie R feat. Parisinos – Oropos
As the sun went down over the horizon, it took with it the all too safe and predictable atmosphere of daytime. Striking colours of red and orange shot across the sky, highlighting the small clouds that rested against it. While below the vast blue-ish green sea stopped reflecting the suns sparkles, and instead became a dim navy blue mass that hosted a subtle shimmer. Sunbathers that dominated the beach hours before, were replaced with groups of people celebrating the night, taking advantage of the exciting mystique that came with it.
On this track, Stevie R further develops his signature sound by combining dance-inclined funky electronics and Greek folk music, known as rebetiko, to create a fusion he calls ‘rebetronica’. The EP, titled Oropós, sees Stevie work with London-based musician Parisinos, with an alternate take on the title track supplied by Kiwi. This marks he first instalment of a mini-album released in two parts, the second of which, Ta Paidia Tis Getonias, is set to drop in the coming weeks courtesy of Chapter 24 Records.
