giveitaspin / The website
giveitaspin.gr is an award-winning genre full music, arts and culture blog based in Thessaloniki (SKG), Greece since 2008, founded by Niki Sorogas. It started out as a blogging platform and evolved later on into a genre full concept! Niki is a girl that dislikes stereotypes and also aims to eradicate inequality in the music industry f.y.i. giveitaspin supports the local and global scene of bands, artists and DJ’s that cover a plethora of music genres.
giveitaspin.gr provides communication sponsorship to events and culture escapades so send us a mail for the logo pack!
The next goal is to bring giveitaspin on a streaming radio service (like radiojar 24/7) with the incoming promo and create a digital label online. If you can help from Greece or abroad, let us know! Open to any ideas and collaborations.
Friendly contributors are also invited on this journey. The newest music contributor on board is Christoph Kiss. C. Kiss is one half of the Zurich-based Producer-Duo and Liveband “Okvsho” and part of the Label Boyoom Connective.
#giveitaspin is a motto to share the music love. The logo design was made by John Trifonopoulos aka Greek electronic artist Esoteric Sob.

#giveitaspin / The hashtag
Niki lived in Sydney, Australia during her primary years and came over to Greece with the fam. She loves her Aussie accent and Downunder stuff! Has always been writing ever since the mid-2000s for Greek and International music zines. Niki is also a freestyle DJ and radio prod. for over ten years now and has worked for the music industry in parallel with her uni years (Press & Promo, Record Store personnel, Festivals, Volunteer). She also gained experience from The Lab & one of Greece’s biggest festival productions – Plissken Festival. Exposed to music culture from an early age she’s always on the go for creative collaborations and discovers the next best sounds! However, she has a demanding (non-musical) day job even on some weekends, so go easy on those promos and the e-mail!
Giveitaspin loves true music relationships with independent artists and small labels, supporting all kinds of events/festivals and having fresh music on the radio show constantly. You’ll find some articles in Greek under the GR edition, other than that it’s all in English blabber to connect with people from all over the world
