Greek club night Blend starts up again this weekend with Richie Hawtin. Umek, James Holden and Terry Francis are set to spin in the coming months.
The Blend Project started out last year as a series of parties in Athens running from October to May. Known for their late-morning finishes, this year Blend also spreads its wings to Thessaloniki with the launch party taking place there this Saturday with Richie Hawtin. Upcoming nights include a Fabric night with London tech house mainstay Terry Francis, two dates with James Holden and the return of Blend favourite, Slovenian techno star Umek.
The nine confirmed parties so far will be held at the Luv Club in Athens and Boutique in Thessaloniki. Additional dates in 2007 will be announced soon.
