It is the first day of snow at our village below Mt Olympus and definitely a good one to post this special mix from RHYLEB aka Grigoris Kordellas. Co-organizer of the Be Uncensored parties,
he’s usually more into techno sounds, but his mix for higher-love is a collection of classic underground rebetika songs.
“This mix is dedicated to the first two periods of rebetiko(1922-1932 & 1932-1942). The word rebetiko or plural rebetika is an adjectival form derived from the Greek word rebetis. The word rebetis is today construed to mean a person who embodies aspects of character, dress, behavior, morals and ethics associated with a particular subculture.[1] The word is closely related, but not identical in meaning,
to the word mangas, which means strong guy that “needs correction”. Initially a music associated with the lower classes, rebetiko later reached greater general acceptance as the rough edges of its overt sub cultural character were softened and polished, sometimes to the point of unrecognizability.”

Drink some raki to warm up and enjoy. Thank you Grigoris!
