Just a year ago a new name appeared on the international techno landscape.
An artist who has a vivid past, lived the live of rockn´roll for almost 10 years, playing all the clubs
in Greece and who was voted one of the best DJs in Greece... stopped from one day to the other to
quit with his past and to beginn with “something” new.
His name was Mihalis Safras. He soon began buying equipment and learned quickly to produce
a a “fett“ powerful electronic sound. But other than that it is his personality that struck Riley
Reinhold which led to a signing of up to now five 12"s on Trapez limited.
Mihalis Safras is also called the “octopus”. There is no other man in techno business who can
communicate with so many people, talk about so many different topics and still manage at the
end of the day to come up with superb tracks.
Sure some people will say there is too much Mihalis Safras around referring to his remixes for
BPitch, Great Stuff etc... but the man has a heart as big as Mykonos and the speed of Pegasus.
Mihalis Safras is a true artist who travels once a year with his band shutting down all techno
channels to play the instruments he learned to play... and to chill down.
The history of this album is a history of a friendship between the artist Mihalis Safras and the
painstaking research for originality from Riley Reinhold, DJ and mastermind behind all selection
of music on Traum and affiliated labels for over 10 years.
So now what do we get? We get a full year of what we consider is the best of what Mihalis Safras
has ever released.
Why did we not release it before on EPs when it is so good? Because Mihalis knew he had enough
talent to still keep pumping out grand 12"s. What we get with his album are 12 tracks, eleven of
them unreleased and on top an edit of "Here Comes The Rain" which we believe was a perfect
track to close the album. (added: 2009-05-23 10:02:26 )
