—The Gathering in Text:Centred around its annual forage into nature; The Gathering, aims to link the Cypriot underground scene with an online neighbourhood of artists. These artists have been carefully selected and invited to participate together, fulfilling our curatorial fantasy. A collection of Cypriot artists have already started working for the project and an event acting as motivation for production is the reason we’re doing this.
On the 8th & 9th of July by the Tamassos Reservoir, Kampia, Cyprus, two stages will host the performances allowing artists and participants to experience a mindfully selected range of electronic music; a wide range of thoughts, feelings, emotions, rhythms, textures and physical surroundings that the Gathering and the Cypriot landscape has to offer.
The record label was initiated in order to collect and organise local material and to create a platform for future collaborations and after the common experience of The Gathering.
—About Honest Electronics:Honesty stands for compact, dynamic and useful actions to the dance scene of Cyprus. Priority to the underground, to the potential of experimentation, to high aesthetic dirt. An action to highlight the importance of local networking whilst simultaneously attempting to connect with an international network.
Honest Electronics, is a concept created by Nico Stephou and Aristos Ioannou. Adapting what they've already learnt in their yearly involvement in the local scene, they are collaborating to create a scenario of chained situations which will result in a two day gathering.
