As you MAY have noticed, I haven't posted for a while now....for a lot of reasons which I don't find necessary to mention. Anyway I decided to put Stoned Sun Vibrations on hiatus and concentrate my efforts to Downtuned Magazine ('n' Radio). Many of you probably know that Downtuned Mag is dedicated to the Greek heavy rock scene but since I've started Downtuned Radio too, I'm thinking of including posts about releases from all over the world. Apparently I'm going to keep a ratio but we'll see how it'll evolve.
From now on, you can find me on Downtuned Mag. And for any bands interested in reviewing/including them in radio's rotation etc., you can come in touch with me through the contact form over there. As I wrote above. I'll try to keep a ratio and at least in the beginning I'll try to "promote" mostly "smaller", more independent bands that deserve your attention.
So I want to thank each and everyone of you out there who supported, read, promoted and helped this blog. Also a big fat thanks to all the bands which helped SSV in their own way.
That's all for now folks! Thanks again! Maybe SSV will be back someday. Or maybe Downtuned will become better than SSV.... Who knows.
Be well and stay heavy!
PS: Rock Trips Mixtapes will be back soon.... They'll be the only thing posted from now on. Perhaps some other personal comps too.


Rock Trips Mixtape Vol. 8

Well a new Rock Trips Mixtape has arrived... Previous Monday's show was a great one, there was a bigger (than usual) company in the studio, a lot of laughs and booze too. We had a special guest -Kostis, a cousin of mine and Markos' friend- coming straight from Singapore who spinned a couple of tunes too.

When I first joined the show's company, I think it was much heavier. The last two times, the main guys behind the show (Sakis and Markos) seem to lost their way... Previous week we have some Talisman in and this one things like Tuxedomoon, Mary & The Boy, Mercury Rev...even Almodovar for god's shake!!! I hope that they'll understand their huge mistake and make it up soon! They know that whatever I write, I do it 'cause I care about them and I want to save their dignity in the name of heavy grooves. My beloved little black sheeps...
Anyway enjoy the mixtape, is a great one. Cheers!
