Take a trip to Greece with Minus & Zianos

Greek duo Minus & Zianos give us a taste of the house sounds currently permeating the Mediterranean country.

This has led Minus & Zianos to organize local residencies and guest nights in Thessaloniki over the past decade, while the duo have also begun to settle in Berlin.

More recently, however, Minus & Zianos have expanded their sound offering by debuting on Steve Bug’s pokerplat subtag, Sublettingwith a dubbed EP Dedication. This house EP features deep yet funky elements in both of its tracks, “Dedication” and “Grooveas the duo sought to moodtrax to round out the collection with a remix of its title track.

As the dance music scene continues to recover around the world, Minus & Zianos shared that their local community in Greece has revived. “The past two years have been tough for culture as well as for the global stage, not to mention a country that already had a tough job reaching dance culture to a wider audience,” the duo said. .
