Ithaka Darin Pappas writer/vocalist of "So Get Up"
Underground Sound Of Lisbon featuring Ithaka – So Get Up (1994)
So Get Up was Portugal's home-grown club anthem and a track that instigated the country’s move away from just rock and fado music. Initially released as the B-side to their 1994 Chapter One track it features a doom-forecasting monologue – “The end of the world is upon us, pretty soon it will all turn to dust” – from Greek- Californian artist and vocalist Ithaka Darin Pappas. A hard-thumping and squelchy acid monster in the same continuum lineage as music by Joey Beltram and Hardfloor, So Get Up took on the world when the Tribal America label licensed it and gave it to Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia to remix.
