Found on a reserved rocky peninsula protruding into the Aegean Sea and shaping two natural beauties, Paraga and Kavos lagoons, Scorpios is a beach club with the reputation of a high-bohemian enclave and sophisticated modern agora. It differentiates itself from other venues on the island and at large on many counts but most notably through its music addressed to connoisseurs and the genuinely curious rather than feeding on hormonal mainstream and back into mass euphoria.
We like it sometimes slow, at times vigorous, but always smart and cordial. Our cultural policy is steered by the desire to comprehend music in all its unpredictability and multiplicity of styles, to feel into and absorb the subtleties of each, to enrich ourselves aesthetically, to enlighten others, and to transform the local club scene augmenting it with another dimension, spiritual and erudite one.
In developing our concept, we deliberately abstain from seductive influence of big names and skip out on charts banked on airplays, sales and other abstract numbers. Instead, through personal research stepping deep into subterranean currents, we reach for the original forms uncontaminated by hype and unstained with self-conceit. We bring back to the surface those which implore light as much as they deserve it to shine – authentic gems for you to be first to applaud into the future... To hold them in your senses briefly before they ascend to the stars where, we think, they truly belong.
Our jumbo compendium titled Scorpios Rituals 2016 containing more than 60 profiles amply appended with biographies and multimedia would take an elephant to upload it en masse and another on the receiving end to download. We are splitting the volume in about these many lighter segments to keep you posted on what lies ahead – each bit at a time and when that time comes.
You will find some names world-renowned and resounding, some familiar from Scorpios 2015, some utterly unknown and cryptic. Sonic entertainers, auditory artistes, record collectors, sound clip archivists, sub-underground producers, beat-matchers, glitch architects, ambience alternators, random pattern catalysts, loop pathfinders, fader collaborators, semi-automatic virtuosos, vst illusionists, high-pass filter maestros, fulbright village musicologists, dehydrated desert deejays, ancestral spiritualists, magic tribalists on the move, jungle hipsters on tour, urban hustlers off the leash, air-guitar medalists on ableton, sex symbols in denial and disguise, prophets of microgroove, turntable houdinis, sultans of midi-mixing, don juans of dropping bass, love-frequency therapists, downtempo yogis, shamans of acoustic techno, disco nudists, deep house apollonians, music personifiers, unswerving sui generis, the variant combinations of all these, and more… Each comes in so many identity dimensions .
Quantity equals quality: the next 4 months at the Sunset Terrace may easily go down in history as the most exciting "instant" ever lived through on the island.
