Prins Obi is back, not alone this time. The self-titled album of Prins Obi & The Dream Warriors is in some sense the debut of the Athenian underground supergroup (with members of Baby Guru, The Voyage Limpid Sound, Chickn, Montero band, A Victim of Society) and at the same time the third complete solo work by Prins Obi (the successor to “The Age of Tourlou”).
The Dream Warriors move to Diskex studio for a while and accompany Prins Obi on a journey from the outside to the inside, in the process of which they are partying, exorcising demons, recapturing romantic moments, loving (again) glam and hard rock, exonerating miserable situations, wandering around greek and foreign psychedelic valleys and delivering a postmodern and yet retro work of songs, live energy and finesse.
Out on limited edition black/clear vinyl (+cd version) and digital album via Inner Ear.
Prins Obi is the moniker of Georgios Dimakis: musician, pharmacist and member of Baby Guru. Together they have released four official LPs (“Baby Guru”, “Pieces”, “Marginalia” and “IV”), one mini-album (“Sunshine Special”) and 5 digital EPs and they have performed live in Greece, Europe and America (Eurosonic, CMJ Music Marathon, Europavox and more).
He has produced the debut album of KU, “Feathers” and co-produced its follow-up (“Ganja”). As a duo they have recorded an improvisation project entitled “And Tomorrow Again”, under the name ΧΛΟΗ (khloē, greek word for grass). In addition to these, he has participated as a guest on the solo album of King Elephant, on “Sudden Death” by Blend aka Mishkin and on the homonymous LP of No Man’s Land, serving as a member of the band for a period. Last but not least he was a member of the band Duke Abduction who released their debut album “The Curious World of Duke Abduction” in 2009.
In December 2013, his digital EP “Love Songs for Instant Success” was given as a free download, while in November 2014 his first solo album, entitled “Notions”, was released from Inner Ear.
His sophomore LP, “The Age of Tourlou”, was released on Record Store Day 2017 and has been played live with the help of The Dream Warriors. Together they have recorded his third album “Prins Obi & The Dream Warriors” which will be released in November 2018.
