Astralón Jukebox 10
An ongoing pandemic, Xmas, a war in Europe and – thankfully – a lot of work for our creative digital agency. This is the soundtrack of our winter.
The final days of the 2021/22 winter unfortunately brought a new war in Europe, with the Russian Federation launching its full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24. As if our distractions and problems were not enough, with the ongoing COVID pandemic in our daily lives.
On the other side of the coin, the good news is that our office team continued its processes and stayed focused on day to day tasks and new projects, next to its dear partners and collaborators, despite these adversities and sad news. And of course, music was always there by our side. From Daft Punk’s and Caribou’s all-time-classic beats, to the sweetness and playful melodies of Arlo Parks, Alt-J and Toro Y Moi, from the excellent song covers of Phoebe Bridgers, FKA twigs and The Specials, to beloved musicians from the past as Roy Orbison, Elvis Costello, Antônio Carlos Jobim or The Dave Brubeck Quartet, to name a few.
You can’t also miss our dear artists from Greece, Fotis Siotas, Pavlos Pavlidis, Theodore and Danai Nielsen, while our partner and owner of Vimitex company, George Lazaridis, reminded us Billy Ocean’s lyrics: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”.
