Thank goodness DJ Cam did not pursue business studies as a young buck. If he had, a club packed with Greek trip-hop fans would not be getting their groove on this Friday, June 1 (2007) in Athens’s own One Happy Cloud (Aristofanous 12, Psiri, +30-210-3222-256).

Yes, that’s right, you jazz-hip-hop-abstract-trip-hop-acoustic-electronica-instrumental-beat-loving music fans: thanks to Noiz Productions, French maestro DJ Cam will be performing live at Psiri‘s intimate hot spot, One Happy Cloud. If you attend, you’ll expect to be shoulder-to-shoulder with about 200 Greek folks, but no more than that. One Happy Cloud is a small joint, perfect for hearing some of the world’s greatest DJs perform live. If you don’t get there early (we suggest by 11 p.m., although he may not hit the decks until midnight), you’ll surely miss your chance.

And trust us, One Happy Cloud is the perfect venue to check out DJ Cam if you want to be close enough to him to feel the steam evaporating from his skin and hear his remixes and original rhythms deep into your sleep hours later. Yes indeed, Greece-trodding international music lovers, the bar is appropriately named: while you’re there and long after you leave, you’ll be happy.

About the author

In order to keep a promise she and her brother had made to their grandmother (and to simultaneously fulfill one of her own dreams) Kaymaria left her beloved hometown of Oakland, California and headed to Athens in time for the 2004 Olympics. Today, she continues to work and play in the Greek capital, where you may find her writing atop Lykavittos, road-tripping with overseas guests, enjoying Athens cafés with friends, dancing to Greek hip-hop music, or reading Greek subtitles in an outdoor cinema. The daughter of two life-long educators and enthusiastic travelers, Kaymaria has explored North America, Mexico, and Europe. It was not until she spent a year as an exchange student at The University of York in England, however, that she discovered that she does not actually speak English.
