over mentality / LP

Doric is the solo side-project of Stathis Leontiadis, mostly known as the one half of the Human Puppets, as well as the Exetix and Plexiglas. Being involved in various avant-garde / new-wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the all analogue mentality of the late 70's / early 80's music field , he passionately committed to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as 'specialist'. His live performances are all analogue by choice and are interestingly captivating as the sound is being built on stage, just like the old days. 'Over Mentality' is a record, full of minimal electro perfectionism and new-wave complex landscapes, performed with the agility and passion of a natural born purist. Doric's mentality, carries raw, passionate ,old school values filtered with the innovation of a musician that is cursed to live today. His subjects vary from unexpected loves, cursed lives, wasted, devoured dreams however, all of them cling under one thematic area: 'How memories fulfill us and keep us sane?'. The artwork of the record implies the handmade, oldschool ethos as well. Released in 500 hand-numbered limited black vinyl copies, including download link..

so far, so near / 10"

Doric is the alternate persona of the multitalented Stathis Leontiadis, mostly known as the one half of the Greek purists, Human Puppets. He is, without a doubt, one of the 1st Greek independant musicians in 00's, that treasured new wave synth music, using only hardware. Exactly as his ancestors. Being involved in various avant garde/new wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the all analogue mentality of the late 70's / early 80's music field, he passionatelly commited to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as 'specialist'. His releases on Fabrika Records gained excellent reviews and described as minimal electro perfectionism. This time, on this mini LP, Doric builts on his analogue rhythm box (the famous KR-55) a short story about alienation in six parts. All related and connected, these 6 songs describe a day of a daydreamer, forced to cope with routine and the vile, impersonal stage of socializing. This new age of 'impersonalization' connecting with others but never quite communicating our wishes and wills, sums up to the title 'So Far, So Near', a vast misinterprantion of other people's motives, as we are trapped inside our own havens; ourselves. This small personal nightmare, is synthesised with multilayered agility, using a Moog Rogue, a Sequential Circuits Pro One and the MacBeth Micromac-D. All this obsessive use of analogue equipment has only one purpose: delivering an accurate, minimal but not simple description of Life as a concrete, empty, business transaction, full of unique circuits and paths, noone sees. Overall, this mini LP refers to temper/personality, as an inevitable hideaway of oneself, but yet impossible to maintain, as long as we are bound to norms that regulate superficial relationships. We are far but yet, so near. All tracks written/performed/produced by Stathis Leontiadis, 2014-15 in Athens. Edition of 300 numbered copies. Hand silkscreened cover. It includes an insert (26,5x26,5cm) and free download code..

sleep of reason / 10"

Doric is the moniker of the purist Stathis Leontiadis (Human Puppets, Exetix, Plexiglas). Being involved in various avant-garde/new-wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the 'all' analogue mentality of the late 70's/early 80's music field, he is passionatelly commited to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as a 'specialist'. On this release, the main subject of the record is creative interplay. The 1st side (the 'Asleep' side), includes songs written by the artist alone, using sleep as a metaphor of loneliness and seclusion from the oppressive, everyday society that smothers anything unique under the struggle of daily routine. However, on the 2nd side, Doric mutes his skeptic, internal monologue for a bit and collaborates with 2 very talented and like-minded artists, Pascal & Valisia Odell. Pascal (Foucault, Noisetoy, Ludmilla) is an ingenius multi-instrumentalist and an old friend of Doric and Valisia Odell (Phoenix Catscratch, Strawberry Pills, Father Breath) is one of the most charismatic voices in Greece, with a very distinctive and enchanting vocal hue.This friendship results to the 2nd side (the 'Awaken' side), a critical view of what our society translates into artistic and life success in general. A simplified formula that often leads to bury our most creditable truths, in order to become a pattern, easily readable and understandable by the masses. The overall essence of this record however concludes to a rather optimistic dream of a utopian reality, where everyone can create unobscured. The value of each effort can only be appreciated through time. Limited to 300 black copies with the distincive Doric handmade artwork,a homage to the Diy. Ethos, an infusion from the past but a promise of a future. Strong !
