27 Feb MTV Best Greek Act award, winner Stereo Mike at SXSW!
Support his Kickstarter campaign: Here… There are only 2 days left!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Criteria Entertainment. February 27, 2013. (Los Angeles, CA) – The first ever winner of an MTV Best Greek Act award, Stereo Mike has just announced his participation at the SXSW festival in Texas in March – and a documentary that will tell the story of the whole journey from Athens to Austin.
Stereo Mike will perform at SXSW on March 13, 2013 at Flamingo Cantina.
The first Greek hip hop act to play the music conference and festival, Stereo Mike is taking Helena Micy (backup vocals), MC Mithridatis and DJ Pritanis from Imiskoumbria along on a cross-continental trip, filming every step of their unprecedented travels from Athens through London to Austin, all of which will result in a behind-the-scenes, artist-cut, honest-to-heart and all-around hilarious documentary.
Mike will edit the footage himself and produce limited edition copies of the documentary for backers of the Kickstarter campaign created to fund the filming:
Multiple MTV nominee Stereo Mike was born and raised in Athens, where he started his musical path by learning to play piano at 7 years of age. A childhood spark became a serious passion as the artist graduated with music technology and audio production degrees, composed movie soundtracks and worked as a sound engineer for some of the top British hip hop acts of the decade. After years of producing material for other artists, he became one himself in 2005: Stereo Mike was officially born with the release of his debut album Satiri Nomades (AMG Records), featuring the track “I Polis”, which garnered Mike his first nomination for Best Hip Hop Video at the 2006 Greek VMAs.
Three albums and many awards later, multi-instrumentalist, lyricist and rapper Stereo Mike has an established international reputation as one of the most innovative contemporary artists from Greece, one whose melodies, irresistible hooks and social message transcend musical boundaries.
