NON is connected with the past and the present of electronic music in Thessaloniki, Greece. Based on the demand and desire for freshly squeezed ideas, its assets embrace a large number of activities such as artists' representation, event coordination, promotion, music management and graphic design.
The history of the NON idea begins back in the mid 90's. Formed by Tasos Anthopoulos, Ison & Solar, NON started as an experiment of introducing a new sound to the city. With first attempts to put together two turntables, a small sound system and some good will for new & fresh ideas in small underground venues, NON efforts had an important effect and as a result, parties became bigger and stronger. Numerous events then took place mainly in Thessaloniki but also all over Greece with highlight, the coordination of a series of open area festivals taking place at the University area of Thessaloniki from 1995-2000 with the participation of the most promising young talents of that time and more than 5000 people participating & dancing for hours.
Motivated by their passion for modern electronic music, the now reformed NON is based on a philosophy of organizing and realizing a series of events focused on the relationship between the sound and on the environment around. This mixture of ideas ended up in a successful session of events wherever there is will for new born ideas.
Having organised more than 500 events the past years and hosting more than 200 artists, the assets of NON include 3 concept parties, the "aesthetics", "kontakt", "Polaroid Parties", as well as the Reworks festival which has been voted as the best festival ever took place in Northern Greece.Electronic music is combined with modern arts and artists from all over the globe with some of the most important artists of Greece, established or upcoming talents, have suceed to create a new era in the countrys art culture by all gathering together, on an effort of performing electronic music and fine arts in order to elevate, or even better to point out the really important relationship between sound, motion and image.
This moment finds NON hosting apart from Ison & Dj Solar, also 4 very promising talents And.Id, Johnny Mass and Bubble One. With their unique style, the artists' purpose is to elevate from obscurity the most romantic flavor of electronic culture with plain and clear aims.
