DJ Krazy Kon is back with his latest compilation of the best of Greek music

For eight years running, DJ Krazy Kon has been the architect of summer soundtracks for many Greek Aussie dance addicts.
He is dedicated to annually releasing a series of Greek music compilation CDs at the close of every year and the project has developed an “identity of its own” over its impressive lifespan.
Carving a new niche in Australia, his albums play a big part in the sunkissed memories for all those lucky enough to have experienced a Greek summer adventure; there truly is nothing that can bring it all back like the perfect mix of songs that played in real life.
This November marked the eighth release in Krazy Kon’s dance compilation collection; the new album title stays true to the traditional chronological name he has used all along, Greece 2010.
When asked what inspired him to create the CD series, Kon voiced a great desire to create something new for Greek Australians, “There was no precedent. It had never been done before and I wanted to take Greek music to another level in this country.”
The endeavour has broken many barriers in the mainstream Australian market, with Kon officially being the only Greek DJ/producer outside of Greece, and globally, to have his own catalogue of eight releases, “People wait for the release every year to add to their collection. For the very first time, this CD is being distributed and sold in the United States, which makes the market even bigger for me and my record label to expand internationally”.
This year’s instalment features a Flashback disc, which offers listeners a trip down memory lane of summer seasons gone by, “Everyone likes a blast from the past. Having a release with new tracks on one CD and classics on the second is a winner.
You have the best of both worlds. We tried the concept with Greece 2009 and it was one of the biggest sellers in the CD series, so due to popular demand we went that away again for this new release.”
DJ Krazy Kon’s career spans over 12 years in the entertainment industry and his achievements are nothing short of impressive. He is a producer, promoter, entrepreneur and all round a unique force in the Australian Greek music scene, not mention the international circuit of late.
There really is no true parallel to the work he is doing for Greek music outside of Greece. Kon has played a fundamental role in leading the Greek DJ and nightclub movement in Australia and is recognised as being the most influential Greek Australian artist of our time.
With such an impressive resume, the veteran music man has much to say when it comes to Greek music and how it has evolved since he began the Greece series of albums, “It is definitely moving with the times. It’s getting funkier, more creative.
A lot of Greek artists are using some of the biggest names in the music industry to collaborate with and to mix their music. It’s cutting edge and the production side of things, in most cases, is of international quality”.
Further to his comments on the current Greek music scene, Kon described a fresh project he has just wrapped up with Greek singing sensation Mariada Pietridi from Greece, “I met Mariada while she was in Sydney in March of this year, and we talked about doing a collaboration, which I have always wanted to do with a big pop artist from Greece.
In September we moved forward with the project.
I wrote the music for the track, she then wrote and recorded the lyrics and sent them back to me to lay down and produce the track. It’s called Fantasia Theli Mono and it is a sexy, upbeat dance track with a saxophone hook. It features on my new album Greece 2010 and the big news is that it will be officially released in Greece on Mariada’s new album after Christmas”.
Kon is currently touring Australia for the release of Greece 2010, which involves travelling and performing extensively. The tour will span nine cities Australia-wide, involving a jam-packed schedule in December covering Brisbane, Darwin, Townsville and Adelaide.
From there, DJ Krazy Kon will visit Perth, Hobart and Canberra early next year.
When asked what else is in store for the talented producer next year, “This year has been great for me; new record label, new album, new international track and plenty of national touring.
I am currently working on an international tour for 2010, and if it comes through, Neos Kosmos will be one of the first to know about it. I also just want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year”.
So folks you heard it here first, Krazy Kon may officially be on global circulation as of 2010.
