‘Blue Grass’ EP contains four super-rare recordings of a phantom Greek musical-duo called Free Level, which was formed in Athens, Greece between 1983 and 1984. The musicians behind this project were composer and keyboardist George Theodorakis and ex-Sharp Ties’ guitarist and founding member Petros Skoutaris — both young veterans of the Athens music scene in the late ’70s–late ’80s. Into The Light proudly picks four utterly spellbinding highlights of this totally unheard material. More specifically, the EP offers two long instrumental tales and two somewhat personal songs that all together share the same syncretic blend of European and Southeastern nuance. Swaying rhythms, obscure but hilarious lyrics, pitched up Jean-Luc Ponty influenced bass-lines and proto-dreampop experiments by one of Athens' most promising but short-lived collaborations from the early ’80s. Immerse yourself!
