Topovoros is the translation in Greek of the English neologism locavore describing a person that only consumes locally produced food. This publishing initiative consists of a small catalogue with main interests in politics, urban space and radical movements. The structure of the company follows an analogue of this gastronomic category, where designing, printing, binding and distributing the books is done strictly within a precise geographical area, 200 acres of the neighborhood of Exarchia in Athens.

Chopping up their sound, making them into a vibrant collage of sound, moving back and forth in the dynamic spectrum.
