One wouldn’t expect to find a hiphop mecca in Athens, but traverse across the wide industrial plants on the West side of the city to the shipyard zone known as Perama and there you shall find what you seek. However, ask any of the exponents of the obviously thriving hiphop scene the name of their culture, and they will resolutely answer with two words: Low Bap.

Presiding over this economically distressed region, Greece’s most successful hiphop group Active Member, made up of BD Foxmoor and Sadahzinia, have been tirelessly spreading their highly politicised message across their nation for the last fourteen years. Initiating an entire Grecian hiphop movement, Active Member have released over twelve albums, collectively sold over 250,000 records and have built an independent framework to support a studio, production unit, label, record store and a cultural society, as well as running two annual events and two weekly radio shows. They have knocked down several musical boundaries using samplers, theremins, percussions and guitars over steely beat patterns and have thus transcended the limits of hip hop via its worth and weight of lyrics to breed a new code, that they name “Low Bap”.

According to Foxmoor the hardest aspect in initiating a Greek hiphop style was creating an appropriate flow in which Greek lyrics would sound fluid. “We reached a point in ’94 when hiphop was already at a global level, but we wanted to make sure that we could understand and find a way to do it, that would sound right,” he explains, wishing to emphasise the importance of this step. In conjunction with this, Foxmoor also sought to find a way to maintain the doctrines of pure hiphop whilst maintaining alienation to the decadence and apathy that was slowly emerging as a dominant lyrical force in US hiphop.

The independent framework that the group has set up to support their flourishing success began with a home studio in ’96, which is now a fully professional set up. In 2000 they opened a record store and found their label 8ctagon. In the last years they’ve set up a book shop/ cultural society/ hiphop museum across the street. As well as all this they’ve released various fanzines such as the professional looking Praxia, and back in the day a photocopied newsletter called Radicalistic, which is now a collectors’ item. They also sell lyric books, one of which has sold over 9000 copies, and Sadahzinia has a line in children’s fairytales. Their radio show has been going since ’98 in a greek worldwide internet station called Sky Radio. They are currently setting up their own independent internet radio station Blah Blahsphemy.

The way in which the crowd worship this crew is astounding to witness, but the reason is easily made apparent by the extent of their commitment to music.“We always work from the ground up, because you can never be sure how much society really needs you.” With this in mind Active Member are seeking to make their mark on global hiphop, and Foxmoor is very interested in doing production work across the board.
Active Member collaborated with Asian Dub Foundation, who had their track Collective Mode remixed in different languages by various European groups such as Active Member in Greece and Saian Supa Crew from France. Also they have collaborated and guested a lot of artists in their songs and album releases. Some of these artists are: Rodney P (Mobo Award winner), Skitz, General Levy, Foreign Beggars (Best UK Hip hop Act 2005), Winston Irie, MCD, Phy Life Cypher and Non Phixion Dynamo Dresden, Shi (from Israel), Palestine (rap artist from Palestine), Doc Brown, The Sea, Optimas Prime (Best Dj team in Welsh Music Awards 2001). Also, the basketball NBA ace, Ron Artest who recorded a CD single “Make A Wish” (for the “Make a Wish Foundation”), released from WEA and produced by Active Member, Hugh Mc Dowell (ELO orchestra), Assalti Frontali, and Portugese singer Waldemar Bastos.

Active Member have had hundreds of live performances in Greece, as well as in Europe, always evoking socio-political awareness and building a powerful and emotional atmosphere with guitars, samplers and their mic dexterity … “It’s the most beautiful era, and it’s the very first time that we have only good vibes and no pressure. Now we don’t have to prove anything to anyone, and we can do exactly as we please.”
