I consider Dreamnaught my magnum opus since it was a brief moment in my life in which i disconnected completely and tried to create music purely with my instinct and heart rather than trying to be grounded by genres and styles.
When i begun the project i intended the tracks to have lyrics but realised that the tracks were meant to be heard uninterrupted. The end result is a mixed style with a strong Hiphop baseline.
These are some of my favourite tracks. I consider “Gate of my Dreams” to be a mirror of me, another favourite must be “ Passionless Limits” which is actually a remix of an older track i wrote when i was 21. The title track “Dreamnaught” is also one of my favourites - i remixed this from an old NES game i used to play.
The overarching theme of the EP is different dream states, induction flight and landing.

One of the best instrumentals i’ve ever written, a pop “band” styled track with a heavy hiphop influence. Wasnt intended to be as vanilla as it is but when i decided to include Mike on the track he strongly wanted a Linkin Park vibe, not sure if we achieved it but nevertheless a worthy effort. Im the one doing the rapping

A collection of tracks produced during 2013 heavily influenced by drum n bass and pop. I always wanted to try something other than HipHop so during the course of 3 months i just created whatever came to heart. My 2 favourite tracks have to be “Treasures from the Crypt” and “Zen Sessions” which includes samples from the radio broadcast of the late president Makarios during his hiding from the junta. What?
A collaboration between myself, Giannos Wu, Mirto and daidalos|one aka Paul Andrianides who wrote the music as well. This track came to be as promotional track for the boxing club i used to attend formerly know as Louison Fight Club now Touch Glove
Oh boy, the definition of oxymoron.
This album started out as a joke but eventually became a two sided 30 track EP recorded over the course of 3 years. Jointly produced by myself and daidalos|one.
It began as your typical Greek Athenian imitation but eventually came to be a no nonsense purely underground Cypriot dialect onslaught. Personally it was an experiment testing two completely different dialects of greek and the lesson learned was that Cypriot kicks ass especially for battle rap - which is most of the album. Rapping in Cypriot is a balance act between sounding juvenile or cutting edge. It’s really a shame that songs in Cypriot aren’t taken seriously even in their home country - though this album is the worst example of it. Nevertheless you cant go wrong with rhymes like “Ελα δα να σου συντιχω με ταραμενο ηχο καθισκο την παθκια τσε κουτουλω σε παστο τοιχο” or “εγιω ειμε ο βορτακος τσε σουσε ο γυρινος” .
Cringe worthy? Perhaps. Nonetheless.
Side A are the old school Greek Athenian styled tracks and on Side B are the Cypriot dialect tracks. This would come to be the last EP i would record in the battle rap/philosophical hiphop genre and the last EP release by BrainDamage Music.
