Greek electronic music legend Lena Platonos returns to Dark Entries with “Balancers”, an LP of previously unreleased material (12 tracks) recorded between 1982-1985. Athens-based Platonos has worked with the label previously to reissue her three solo LPs (“Gallop”, “Sun Masks”, and “Lepidoptera”) as well as to release three accompanying 12” EPs featuring modern remixes of her work.

Platonos is renowned for her forays into cutting-edge electronic experimentation as well as for her poetry and lyrics, always recited in Greek.

“Balancers” was remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Eloise Leigh designed the sleeve, which features a doubled Lena in washed-out burgundy hues. Also included is an insert with lyrics in both Greek and English.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
