Ilias Mimilidis a.k.a. “Loopa Scava” – the serial producer.- Teached by old-school musicians the art of music and sound for many years, he continues his musical trip next to fresh and talented ones. His debut album “Up and Down”… Written at an interval of years, ideas from the past and nowadays, selected between loadz of tunes from Loopa Scava’s coffer, and finally recorded at Sala Sonora recording studio when he actually “met” Cayetano. Pelina Stefou, an amazing singer and Ilias’ old friend, came to transform the whole form of those promising tunes with her incredible voice! Kostis Mimilidis a.k.a. “Constantine”, Loopa Scava’s brother, wrote a bunch of amazing tunes with his one-less-chord guitar (!) In this case, you don’t have to do with just a music style like dub, jazz, trip-hop… What makes this album really wonderful is the combination of all styles. Dub bass-lines are fitting strong with the trip-hop beats, the saxophone blows abstract jazzy tunes giving oxygen to the piano and the rhodes while in many cases the sound from the vintage classic guitar are driving your thoughts very far… And when the amazing voice of Pelina comes, things are getting really colorful… Loopa Scava is already “crafting” his next work, by combining new live instruments, dirty phat beatz, a bunch of fresh tunes and more… Stay tuned!
