Nightlife in Greece is its own beast: vivid, non-stop, packed with diverse events to suit every musical need, it beckons to those fueled by an electric need to sample something completely different, yet authentic in its form. Indeed, Athens has finally achieved its nightlife Renaissance, with a nearly limitless plethora of clubs, bars, pubs, music venues and concert scenes available and ready to cater to every taste, however unconventional. One such place, incidentally the best place in the city to enjoy House Music, is the En Vogue Nightclub.
The House of Comfort
Situated in Iera Odos 76, inside the “ever awake” area of Gazi, En Vogue is a spacious brand new nightclub that combines elements of chic and baroque aesthetic with modern minimalism sprinkled with a dash of avant-garde decoration. Housing crystal-clear chandeliers and cozy, comfortable furniture, it strives to manifest an atmosphere of “homely elegance”, mixing the familiar with the peculiar, the tested with the yet unknown: such is the mystified force that pervades the nightclub’s interior space and design, that we can liken it to Edgar Allan Poe’s “House of Usher”, if the house played sublime electronic dance music and served delicious cocktails.
Speaking of which, the cocktails and drinks are crafted as separate works of art, expressing their bartender’s expertise and drive to create something tested and tried, yet at the same time personalized and inspired. Add now En Vogue’s fast and exceptional service, and you have a recipe for success.
House Music has found its Greek Home
Despite the ever-increasing popularity that Greek nightlife keeps on amassing and attracting, there has never been a genuine home for the aficionados of electronic dance music; Until now, that is. The En Vogue Club Athens offers not only a spacious dance floor for unrestrained swaying till sunrise but also supplies its visitors with both mainstream and underground House Music hits that keep on winding their feet and pumping their hearts.
With unique remixes and covers of “olden goldies”, underground hidden gems and monster jams, sensational on-deck DJs sampling brand new tracks and fresh party anthems that turn into instant-classics, En Vogue strives for perfection in every sense. And how could it not? The expert team piloting this House Music Mansion has years upon years of nightlife experience, having run previously the deeply beloved Dream City Athens and finding huge success with its unique personality and modern look.
Perfect Vehicle for Perfect Music
Nowadays, it can be hard to truly appreciate House Music in all its melodic glory, with a wide range of night clubs relinquishing the technical aspect of their live events. Fortunately, this is not an issue for En Vogue, which always provides high sound quality backed by near-perfect technical expertise and sound design. The team of experts, as well as the necessary hardware and software being employed, are always working to ensure that all the basslines, the synth tones, the vocoded vocals and generally every distinct part of a House track achieves its true potential. Be assured that every musical note of each performance will burrow in your ears with surgical precision.
A “Protean” Nightclub in the Heart of Athens
En Vogue is the shared vision of a group of young people living in a musical environment that needs to keep on experimenting and transforming, lest it stagnates and withers. It is a fresh concept that develops a much-needed home created by House Music fans for House Music fans. Undeniably, it has already consolidated its presence among the “titans” of Athenian nightlife entertainment – and it has only now opened shop. We cannot stress this enough – every event is a one-time-only experience, a series of standalone parties that chain together to create a “protean” night club that transforms itself according to the needs and whims of its patrons. Worry not, of course, as House Music remains the core and heart of each and every event.

Of Shows and Midnight Parties
So far, the party program includes “Blessed” Thursdays, “Showtime” Fridays and “No Filter” Saturdays, with 95.2 Athens DeeJay and DJ star Michalis Tsaousopoulos collaborating with other performers for a magnificent spectacle. Recently, “Sin City” parties were announced to be “a thing to come”, and our wonder can only be matched by our impending excitement. Of course, every show will showcase a colorful cast of varied performers, each drawn from a specific background that illustrates House Music in all its multi-faceted glory.
The Underground Has Ascended
Truly, it is a difficult task to soak up the vibrant nightlife scene in Athens, when so many clubs have raised their standards to such high extremes. Walking in the cobbled streets of Gazi, a famed destination for hardcore club-goers, one can lose himself/herself in the variety of nightlife musical venues that sprawl across the area. It is no wonder that the once underground vibes of House Music have gained a large support in Greece throughout the years, with En Vogue leading this era of revived rave, catchy beats, and musical experimentation. Oozing with groove, En Vogue has its own style and rhythm: it is a pioneer of House Music in Greece, slowly but surely combining the various forms of disco, Latin, hip hop, electro swing, techno, synth-pop, funk, soul and jazz vibes, and elevating them to mainstream status.
To summarize: Famous DJs, upcoming virtuosos, underground performers and professional dancers meet club crawlers, party animals and House Music fans in a newly renovated venue in the heart of Athens. Laser light shows and eye-watering VFX combine with top-notch sound equipment and digital mastery to produce a truly mesmerizing experience of pure, nightlife entertainment.
Emotions will run high with housey tunes that will make your body move: this is not a promise, but a statement. This winter, Athens finally gets what it deserves, a clubber’s fantasy delivered.
En Vogue Nightclub is the new Greek home of House Music.

EPB (Electric Polar Bears) bring you a good dose of Future House, so turn up the volume for this dancey hit entitled “Break The Ice”. You can expect dancefloor-ready drops that are sure to spin you to an adrenaline rush. The fast-rising DJ/producer duo is best known for their energetic live sets at clubs and pool parties. Their dreams were crystallized when they played for the very first time in 2017 on Groove Cruise LA and toured along with Deorro.
The music video for “Break The Ice” was filmed in one of Miami’s ultra-luxury hotels and it showcases a fun atmosphere where the celebration seems to never end. If the original track sounds awesome, then you’ll also love the remixed jam by Freshcobar and Lavelle Dupree. Overall, I’m pretty sure both versions are going to warm you up through the coming summer days. Sadly, clubs and festivals are closed due to COVID-19, nevertheless, I still think you can enjoy it at home during your next workout session. Give it a listen right here.

Kaskade Takes You To The Heart Of Dance Music With ‘Redux 004’ EP
After teasing listeners with the releases of “Sexy” and “Love Like That” over the last month, dance music veteran and icon Kaskade releases his highly-anticipated ‘Redux 004’ EP in full. Redux series has become a much-loved tradition for the fans of Kaskade around the globe, and the new installment of the EP delivers a rich dose of intimate, deep and groovy vibes that the concept has become so well known for. In addition to “Sexy” and “Love Like That,” the full release includes two brand new tracks that will transport you to another place and time in dance music, where underground shows were the norm, and the music took precedence over special effects. “Feel It” delivers a deep, driving bassline and liquid melodies that are born for making dark rooms groove. Next up is “Find Love,” a sultry vocal-driven and melodic song on the lighter end of the spectrum for the EP. “Sexy” is perhaps the most provocative track, evoking images of balmy Miami nights, while “Love Like That”‘s haunting piano riffs and sultry vocals will make you want to find a beautiful stranger on the dance floor. Just like its predecessors, “Redux 004” provides an immersive experience that takes listeners to the heart of dance music as it was years ago. It has always been a concept close to the hearts of Kaskade and his fans, and we hope it continues for many years to come.
As a household name in electronic music for nearly two decades, Kaskade needs no introduction. His list of achievements is a mile long: 11 studio albums, 7 GRAMMY nominations, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell out both Navy Pier in Chicago and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the first DJ to ever secure a Las Vegas residency, and the first electronic artist to headline Coachella. Less tangible but even more important has been his influence on dance music tastes and culture for generations of listeners. Often Kaskade is one of the artists who introduced now-veteran listeners to the genre, and such fans are usually fans for life. In 2019, he worked with multi-award winner Meghan Trainor on “With You” and Gorgon City on “Go Slow,” among solo releases, such as “My Light,” “Come On,” an official remixes for the likes of Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani earlier. Kaskade continues what has become a nostalgic tradition for many dance music veterans and cherished experience for new listeners. Stay tuned for more news from Kaskade in 2020.

BROHUG Showcase Their Signature Style On 4-track ‘Mixtape 1’ Via BROHOUSE
Swedish trio BROHUG is back with their newest release ‘Mixtape 1’, a four-track bundle that perfectly represents their signature bass house sound. The sonic style ranges from more tech influenced tracks like “Party Out”, which they’ve debuted in live sets earlier this year, and released as a single back in February, to the tribal infused “Detox” and the hard-hitting “Say My Name.” However, if you are ever in need of euphonious vocals, BROHUG has you covered with “Trouble,” which still kicks with a heavy drop and driving basslines. ‘Mixtape 1′ follows BROHUG’s “1990” with Kaskade and recently released “Preacher” with Loge21, out on Spinnin’ Records. ‘Mixtape 1’ is out on their own BROHOUSE imprint.
Regardless of their satirical stage name, BROHUG is not here to play games. Since John Dahlbäck and the Lunde brothers formed BROHUG in 2016, the trio has worked with Ghastly, remixed Steve Angello, and released on labels such as Confession, Spinnin’ Records, Dim Mak, Musical Freedom, and their label BROHOUSE. In 2019, their release schedule was packed with relentless hit after hit. Virtually unrivaled, their touring has been intense since the start. BROHUG has really put their name out, with sets on festivals like Ultra Music Festival in Miami and Tomorrowland in Belgium, touring Australia and several tours in the US and Asia. A new decade brings with it new possibilities, so stay tuned to hear more from BROHUG coming soon.
