Black Athena are a DJ duo, a radio show and more recently a record label, conceived in and around the centre of Athens during the first decade of the millennium. In an underground music field that increasingly is about A&Ring music directly from the internet and creating labels spearheaded by artists already accepted as "cool", Black Athena is all about having a personal 'real' connection with the artists, helping develop them and putting them on a global stage. The sound of Black Athena is as much about the sound of contemporary US rap as expressed by Kendrick Lamar, Drake and A$ap Rocky, as it is about the Deep House blueprint of Moodymann and Theo Parrish. It is as much about Wiley, Skepta and D Double E as it is about Prince, Marvin Gaye, Prince Jammy & Chic.
