"Behind every mask there is a face, and behind that a story" – Marty Rubin



The great magic and the whole spirit of institutional radio were the main factors that inspired me to enter the radio game and set up my own new project, after having already participated on some others in the past.


GL0WKiD ('0' written with a zero) was born in summer 2011 somewhere in Athens/Greece, keeping a secret identity in order to obey to this kind of magic. The magic of the unknown, with the way it used to be, while listening to several radioshows on local FM stations back then. Only the non-digital, oldskool '90s can face this beauty! And so my aim is to push out the music that I am passionate about, promoting and giving it a blast with the power of love! "For the love of the buzz", in a few words!


"Oldskool & '90s" are also two words of value that exist deep inside me, as this spirit is indelible. That's what I try to show off on my weekly radio show which is called Generation X [RadioShow]. This is translated like a blended generation, where Oldskool meets Nuskool, attracting listeners of different ages and preferences and from various nations. That is how all become 1 on this 2hr uplifting radioparty!

Generation X [RadioShow] is my glowchild, a concept that I am avidly and totally devoted to all overall these years, with continuous support & great feedback from various producers/djs, label managers wordwide, like Luna-C, FFF, Nefti, Retropolis, Damage Inc., DJ CRIP, Champion Breaks, Pursuit, DJ Tornado, Greg Sin Key, The Flashback Project, DJ Nee, Dave Skywalker, MandiDextrous, DJ Wislov, Long Live The Animals, KODE 5 Recordings, Dred Collective, Bassrock Records, Bad Habit, Acme Bass Records, Switchblade Digital. This weekly show is a big expression of myself. And that pure spirit has achieved it entering as one of the Top 5 nominations in the category 'Best Radio Show' on the International Breakspoll Awards 2014.

In 2013, I joined the proud team of The Prodigy Fanboy [www.theprodigyfanboy.com] where I work as an author writing news and reviews on the website about my biggest music love, like The Prodigy, alongside doing some essential podcasts including Prodigy-related stuff, like tracks from their discography, fan remixes, bootlegs, live versions and side projects. (You can listen to all podcasts here)

Of course, I've also made few successful Prodigy tributes on Generation X [RadioShow] like 'The Prodigy Remixed'   -  '20th Anniversary of Music For The Jilted Generation'  -  'The Day Is My Enemy Special Showcase' .





The Prodigy are an essential part of my life as I describe them like my NO.1 music religion. It's the band that has affected & inspired me to begin experimenting with music, as they've proved that they are specialized in blending emotions & genres giving a result of a unique stylee which is full of energy and its called The Prodigy! The quote 'We Live For The Beats' covers everything about that, connecting different ages & generations! This is also one of my aims on my radio show which comes true. And I'm very pleased to deliver that message to all listeners!

I've seen the boys on many gigs and I admit that every time is a totally unique performance from the best live band on planet Earth!


So, around 2012, this huge 'ant' love forced me setting up my own Prodigy Tribute Parties in Athens/ Greece, playing out all night long, spitting Prodigiezed chaos with a great success and response from the party masses, giving away also some exclusive mixtapes and showing off in general that the 'ant' spirit is still alive & pumping!

My biggest moment (till the next big thing of course) came in September 2016, when I was booked to play @ Old Skool Festival 2016 in the Hardcore capital of the third largest city in Poland, the wonderful Lodz!
This was a huge experience and a big 2dayer festival with many legendary names such as N-Joi, Rachel Wallace, N.R.G, Rozalla, The Freestylers, General Levy, Nicky Blackmarket, Davos, Mark XTC etc. as well as local DJs and good friends Oneplayz, Greg Sin Key and many more others! Good people, good times!
   


Finally, I'm a partner/manager and blogger/author on the Strictly Nuskool Blog [www.strictlynuskool.blogspot.com], the perfect Nuskool Hardcore & Nu-Rave place, which features reviews of all the latest releases, interviews, podcasts and much more interesting stuff, promoting the Nuskool Hardcore and Jungle sounds of present, oldskool-influenced as always! There are many great representers out there keeping it alive, and that's my quote about the present scene, like 'Oldskool never died, it has just become Nuskool' ..!

The Strictly Nuskool Blog is also running as a free net-label, giving away on free download, many releases, like EPs, Albums, and exclusive singles from a worldwide variety of talented Hardcore producers, covering genres like Hardcore Breaks, Hardcore Jungle, Oldskool Hardcore, Jungle and Hardcore Techno. (You can check out all releases here)
