Επειδή τα πολλά λόγια είναι φτώχεια και το να φλυαρεί κανείς για τα αυτονόητα όπως του τι τάξεως καλλιτέχνης είναι ο Μιχάλης Δέλτα, του οποίου μουσική ακούω από τα 90’s και έχω την τιμή να παίξω μαζί του, που αλλού, στο Dot την Πέμπτη 2/10, απλά σας παραθέτω το βιογραφικό και τη δισκογραφία του από την προσωπική του ιστοσελίδα. Σας περιμένουμε εκεί.
Mikael Delta is one of the most prolific and influential artists in Greece in the past decade and one of the few who managed to become household names internationally. With releases in France, Belgium, Germany and the U.K., this talented musician took foreign media by surprise by simply declaring his origin. Today’s booming Greek electronica scene owes a lot to this true pioneer and all around great guy!
