„From the beginning, I wanted to make an album that could restore my faith in music and in the world. This, I had to do it alone and to do it right I chose a style of music that I like for long now, Rembetiko, which is a music of truth, and all the songs of the album are truth songs too.
I started by writing the music, mostly modal, without chords, then I developed a guitar style which brings rhythm and melody. I used former music modes and specific bars to create the sound before the verb. Then the lyrics come and it comes from the shadows, the hereafter: The Other Side. In this album, the singer is a character from the underworld feeling the need to talk to us.
This is the underlying cause of the album. I recorded it in my home studio: a guitar, a mic and a direct voice, without sound process. What you hear is this moment of raw truth. It’s my contribution to Rembetiko. Without revival intention, without nostalgia. More a modern poem from ancestral dust. A new flesh covering old bones.“
