Lurid Music's latest release comes from the city of Thessaloniki in Northern Greece. Petroza, aka Petros Antoniadis, is a DJ and producer and one of the figureheads of the underground electronic scene in Greece's second largest city.
He is the founder and owner of S48 Coffeece, a multifunctional space that serves as a music production/DJ studio, record shop and coffee bar. He is also a founding member of THEMA Project, the Thessaloniki Electronic Music Academy.
He released his first album last year on Dogs & Vultures Records. A Beatport review described his style as a "perfect mixture between the influences of ancient sounds such as coldwave, post-punk and kraut-rock with current electronic sounds".
His first release for Lurid Music features two original tracks, along with a remix by Prins Thomas. The digital release will be followed by a twelve inch limited edition vinyl pressing of 200.

Music by Petros Antoniadis. Remix by Thomas Moen Hermansen. Mastering by Dietrich Schoenemann. Artwork by John Tsombikos.
The best downtempo, atmospheric electronica I've heard in ages. Reminds me of the Synaesthesia side project by Front Line Assembly. Ethereal and mystical but hard-hitting; hard to pick any one best track. Buy it! Amber Dean
