Review: A lot happened in the six years since George Mandas aka Blend released his debut 'Izired' for the Athenian label Dsofa Recordings.
As we look back we can surely acclaim his 2002 album release with New York's Shadow Records ('Echo Warrior'), his collaboration
with singer Natasha Atlas, the remix work for the DJ Spooky remix project 'Dubtometry' feat Mad Professor - Lee 'Scratch' Perry, his
appearance in LTJ Bukem's 'Soul Addiction' compilation, and definitely his current release for G.a.m.m. Enterprises under his
Palov & Mishkin moniker with partner DJ Palov.
Prepare yourself... 'Misplaced', released on Cast A Blast, features a cast of creative and talented people, including jazz-pianist/organist
Yiannis Dimitriadis; (Happy Dog Project, Omar Faruk Tekbilek) guitarist/producer Thanos Amorginos from 'The Earthbound' collective;
Dominican/New Yorker DJ/MC Jeff 'Rocklip' Gonzalez aka BnC, responsible for most of the vocals and scratches; vocalist Georgia
Kalafati a.k.a. SugahSpank!; percussionist Miltos Zervos - newly arrived, from Barcelona's multinational project 'Mango Juice; long-time
music partner Costas Chrysogelos aka Digital Alkemist playing the drums; plus special guests vocalist/guitarist Markos Koumaris from
