Encounter of the Third Kind: discover the plunderphonic world of Kid Flicks

Back in September, between twilight and dawn, we had the chance to meet the Athens-based producer, songwriter, and graphic designer Nikos Dervisis and his sweet drums girl Danae Palaka. He was playing a gig at the Bonnefooi in Brussels with his experimental pop sonic alter-ego: Kid Flicks. The artist accepted to answer a few questions and to offer us an exclusive mix inspired by music from all over the world.

This is not a well-thought mix. I didn’t originally create it for a magazine, radio show, etc. and I didn’t try to make something cool, unified, or keep a general concept to it. It’s just one of those genre-hopping mixes we sometimes create with tracks we currently love so we can enjoy them ourselves (I’m sure it has happened to many). I made this in Lefkada in early August and I listened to it a couple of times while walking around in Athens and realized that I like the way it flows and how some diverse selections have matched together. Enjoy 🙂
