Holiday



I was about to post this beautiful summer mix of Tako with the following words:

"What do you expect from a mix when it's done by a supernice guy with an excellent taste in music and a wonderful record collection? Yeah and that's exactly what you get here. Also make sure to get a copy of the first 12" of the Sombrero Galaxy, released on Lovefingers long awaited ESP Institute. Sombrero Galaxy is the collabo between Tako and Jonny Nash and their "Journey to the center of the sun" is one of my favourite releases of the last years, cheers!"

That was yesterday. In the meantime something terrible happened. Tako's friend Petros Malevis from Athens passed away without a warning. This mix is dedicated to Petros! He will be missed. Rest in peace, Petros.

Downing now. Looking forward to this. Where was the photo taken? Is that a lake or the sea?

I am enjoying it: Arabic track at minute 36 is one of my favourite.
Thank you Tako.

people who knew petros are shocked of this tragic event but truth be told is that petros passed away in a ridiculous way as all shinning stars do, hopefully his light will still shine in our hearts and light our paths... he was a true music lover and maybe even a tortured soul as a lot of us! funeral will be held tomorrow and even though i didnt know him that well to be considered a good friend, i feel like i have to pay him my respect. lets just hope he has a wonderful journey to where he is heading,and our thoughts will be with him to keep him safe and good company. deepest condolences to all the friends and family.... rip petro kali suneheia opou ki an pas...
