LENA PLATONOS is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. Her third solo album, Lepidoptera was produced in 1986 and reissued by Dark Entries in 2018. Inspired by a scientific book on butterflies she found in a trashcan one day, the compositions follow minimalistic motifs and carefully-staged soundscapes. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skillfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. We’ve recruited 4 contemporary Greek producers to remix their favorite tracks from Lepidoptera. First up is “Cyaniris” remixed by ANATOLIAN WEAPONS who delivers an enchanted late-night journey through the New Wave forest. Next is “Araschnia Levana” remixed by PASIPHAE who speeds up the pace with machine driven melodic electro pulses. On the B-side we have JUNE remixing “Cyaniris” twirling the track into a complex deep sea dive with lush drum kicks and pads. Closing out the EP is a remix of “Τα Γενέθλια Ή Aporia Maturna” by MORAH who leads us to the underworld of Hades via sinister squelches and full-on apocalyptic rave breakdown. The jacket is a reinterpretation of the original Lepidoptera cover, isolating the illustration of the butterfly/woman designed by ELOISE LEIGH.
