This week in XCLUSIVE! Escape the Brrr and snuggle up on the sofa to indulge in a little R&R of all the latest music news!
Gorgios Mazonakis’ is hoping to end 2017 with a bang as he unleashes his first single in a year! “Siopa Kai Akou”, composed by the super talented writing duo Giorgos Sampanis and Eleni Giannazoulia, is the cheeky, no-nonsense track that marks the next chapter in the singers recording career. Mazonakis’ recent switch to Minos EMI / Universal in the summer means “Siopa Kai Akou” will be his first official release on the label. The release also coincides with the opening of Mazonakis’ winter season at the bouzoukia “Enastron” in Athens where he’ll be appearing onstage alongside Paola and Stelios Rokko.
Panos Kalides is ‘unhappy’ in love for his next musical offering “Anthema”. The singers team initially released a teaser trailer to excite fans, but now the full version is finally here! The new single is a modern laiko that is catchy and melodic and perfectly showcases Kalides' softer and more vulnerable side in his music. Working with Christodoulos Siganos and Valentino once again, the singer will no doubt be hoping to match the success of their previous collab and mega smash of 2016 ‘Kou Pepe’.
