Low bap

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Low Bap<br />Low Bap is a sub-genre of the Greek hip-hop music scene, that emerged in the mid-1990s as the sound of the prominent Greek hip-hop group Active Member. It's characterized by slower tempo and rapping than usual, often combined with lyrics of political content. The words "Low Bap" don't have a specific meaning, they merely represent a perspective on life, society and politics that people in the movement have. <br />
  3. 3. The Low Bap movement has been expanded, so that today it includes bookstores, youth centers and specialized magazines. Cinematic attempts, concerts, and festivals have also taken place in an effort to broaden the scope of the movement, and introduce new bands to the genre's range of followers.<br />
  4. 4. The beginningIn June 1992, during a live performance of Public Enemy in NikaiaB.D.Fooxmoor, X-Ray and MCD met each other and created one of the first Greek hip-hop groups,Active Member. People inspired by this attempt at the creation of Active Member, soon founded Freestyle productions a production group that assisted in the production of Active Member's first two disks, two more LP's (a B.D. Foxmoor's personal disk and mixed collection of tracks from groups that existed that time) as well as a maxi single. <br />
  5. 5. In 1995, hip hop music was not well-known in Greece. That time, Active Member managed to attract great discographic companies and signed up with the consortium Warner (Warner Music Group). This time DJ MCD leaves the groop. Some months later, the third disk of Active Member was produced, under the name To Megalo Kolpo (The Great Wangle), and became widely known. In that album, Active Member decided to rename hip hop as they had taken it in, thus naming it Low Bap. In 2002 X-Ray leaves the group and DJ Booker and Sadahzinia get on it.΄Presently, the group is one of the most widely recognized in Greece, staying away from the rest of the Greek hip-hop scene though. They are deeply involved in the music industry and community, including organizing events such as the annual Low Bap Festival in Athens. They also encourage the youth to enter the scene, and have released records comprised by demo songs sent to them by new performers.<br />
  6. 6. The Place<br />Modern Perama got the look of a small settlement in 1920s, when some refugees from Constadinoupoli and a Black Sea tried to start their lives again in that place. In 1928, the first dockyards of Perama were founded. That caused the coming of many new residents, mostly islanders. Till today, life in Perama is related to the dockyard zone, since most of the residents of Perama work at the dockyards. However, last years, the residents face unemployment and other serious problems. At this place, that is considered to be degrading, began the attempt of the creation of the new music scene, Low Bap, with Michalis Mitakidis, known as B.D.Fooxmoor, being the leading person.<br />
  7. 7. Some of the songs of the Active member are: Η μελωδία της παρακμής, Όταν βρέχει να τ` ακούς, κυνήγι μαγισσών, κάμερα στραμμένη πάνω μου, ο αδιάφορος, φύλακας άγγελος, παράξενος, το τέλος είναι μαγεία, πάμε, φυσάει κόντρα, άκου μάνα, Θυμάμαι, λαβωμένο ξωτικό, τι άλλο φοβάσαι, μια ιστορία από της φωτιάς τα μέρη, and much more.<br />Here follows the wind blows against<br />
  8. 8. The Wind blows against<br /><ul><li>The wind blows against across the land, the wild birds of the air can not find source. I can not stand the silence of the shot. And I see from the place I lived the flight, throw salt in deep wound become a refugee and a good come to me. I'll go in the world, anywhere I can see where I am foreign. I'll go back and meet everyone, learn. Give, get, breathe in the colors increase, from the perfumes charm and travel. I look for us all the same beautiful shade, I make a fire for anyone who wants unmatched worldwide. In the eyes of a child looking for land, knock down the heavens, saves mothers and sons. I make my tongue purple, solid pencil · and my soul from an endless verses hut. Throw your castle, you spit on the star 's curve. Become salty breeze and drizzling. Take the not get out of this corner in which you throw away the corpse stolen by appetite, My blunt refusal (dead), lyso poor, Become Threading reel wrapped give you one, to come back forever and ever to blow your treble, I keep beards until they find shelter those living away. A fresh start and good to come out.</li></ul> <br />
  9. 9. <ul><li>The wind blows against across the land, the wild birds of the air can not find source. I can not stand the silence of the shot. And I see from the place I lived the flight, throw salt in deep wound become a refugee and a good come to meIn my good will come out and let me hurt the oarlock. I have with me in this chalet as you my soul, self-denial, my magic wand I do the impossible to surpass my voice. Price, I just tear my steps mud. Take my footsteps instead map and not cram your boot shame or silence. PS: I do not believe in luck. Where lies dying, born beautiful lyrics and sweeten to hate fake people or fly forever amid the ultra-desert sites. Hidden Words, I crushed my damping did what I had in me. Dumbfounded by the honor in front of the dirty story Legend undead and brutal allegory. Laugh with, cowards, forget me, knit with cord and switch to · within the error of your dream of a pure will explode life and a good cry me out.</li></ul> <br /><ul><li>The wind blows against across the land, the wild birds of the air can not find source.
