I Had no doubt picking the artist which would take Lomidhigh Mixtapes virginity. K.atou had to be the girl. Despite the fact that she still hasn’t finished her ep for Lomidhigh Lmtd, I believe it will happen one day in the near future, hopefully 2010 will be the year. Back home in Athens after 2 years in Berlin the sailor has returned to her Mediterranean Sea, sipping drinks by the pool and skinny diving under the waterfalls. Wonder what she is up to besides enjoying life.

Where was the mix recorded ?
In a very special chamber that doesn’t allow BPM to be more than 120.

Your favourite track in the mix ?
Move D – Theo

You’ve recently moved back home to Athens after 2 years in Berlin – too many parties ?
too many parties.. too little time.?! no I’m only child i wanted and had to be close to my family, after living away since I was 18 … plus that I’m from the Mediterranean and my DNA demands sun and above 30 degrees temp at summer time ..

What have you been up to lately, are you working on any interesting projects besides enjoying life and finishing your ep for Lomidhigh Lmtd ?
Sailing, swimming, travelling, eating .. working on several different projects, like recording vocals for several producers, making music, and enjoying a dry from gigs summer .. good conditions to be more productive and not have you waiting for another 2yrs for the EP.

I’m not even gonna ask you which club is your favourite club, everyone who knows you the slightest bit knows that Club der Visionaere is the place you are at – what makes this place so special to you ?
the location, the energy, the people that participate from all posts to this place, the willow tree, the opportunity to listen the most amazing music in a wonderful environment. the center of the world as we say.

How is the techno/house scene in Athens compared to Berlin ?
I wont compare… not yet.. but if things go as planned, Athens will be able to get its little piece of the techno pie soon. Athens is riding this wave that goes down and then of course it will go up.. something that I never felt happening in Berlin though.

I’m only aware of Lemos, Kreon and yourself from Greece, please name me some more artist that I should get into ?
Argy, GummiHz,And. Id, Mr. Statik, Novox, Ison & Solar, Ekkohaus, Tolis Q, Leon Sega.. I guess you got homework for the next few days.. just with those names.

…oh dear are they all from Greece.. At least I knew a good few of them from their productions.. Obviously not from their nationality.

On the 5th Sept. there´s the Athens Dance Festival – enTechno – ένTechno, the line up for the event looks massive, what is your expectations for this 24 hour party? Will this be a returning event in Athens ?
enTechno – ένTechno is a great collective work to show around Greece and the world how many artists and what a talent this country has, combined with the presentation of films that are dealing with the electronic music, a passion that has made many of us leave our country and now we have the chance to be all together again and dance for 24hrs.

You’ve been playing quite a few places around the world, which city did you enjoy the best ?
Tough one.. well.. USA in general is my fav place to play actually. the people really have fun, knowledge and they love dancing.. the community in USA is strong and with loads of fun. Detroit is the city I enjoy the most playing every time the past 4years I go there.

What do you pick up in the airport when you go travelling ?
A coffee mug for my mum from each and every city I have travelled to .. now she has a huge vitrine with all of them ..cigarettes and a bottle of whiskey (no surprise on that one I guess).

If you had to narrow your many favourite Love songs, down to a top 5, which songs would be on it ?

1. Paul Weller – You Do Something To Me
2. Bruce Springsteen – I’m On Fire (the live version)
3. Air – Playground Love
4. My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
5. Bryan Ferry – Windswept
