Goin' Through

Goin' Through

Profile:
Goin’ Through were founded in 1993 by Nikos ‘NiVo’ Vourliotis and Michalis Papathanasiou, two artists who did not want to merely represent a different kind of music, but set out, and accomplished, to create a unique musical style by writing and producing all of their albums. Influenced and inspired by many artists, Goin'Through wrote its own history of success during the last 18 years. They involved rapidly over the years, releasing more than 10 albums, many singles, and several best-of albums, collaborating with famous Greek and foreign artists, receiving honorary recognition by the music industry on several occasions. In 1998, Goin’ Through managed, via the French music television station MCM, to reach the No. 22 spot on the European Charts, and in 2002 they signed a deal with Universal Music, releasing by Def Jam the album “Symvolaio Timis (Contract of Honor)”, which included several successful collaborations with very important and well-known Greek artists.

2004 proved to be a successful year as well for the group, with the release of “La Sagrada Familia”, which includes a track featuring legendary hip-hop artist and leader of Gangstarr and Jazzmatazz, Guru. The same year, Goin’ Through were honored by MAD TV Music Video Awards (the top music television station in Greece), taking home the award for “Best Hip-Hop Group” as well as “Best Hip-Hop Video”. In addition to those achievements, Goin’ Through also released a special edition of the album “La Sagrada Familia”, which included a remix of their song “Poso Malakas Eisai” by DJ Chaos of the famous Terror Squad Crew. This remix was heard for the first time during this year’s ARION Music Awards (Greek equivalent to the Grammy Awards) where Goin’ Through performed live at the prestigious concert hall, Megaro Mousikis, causing strong reactions in the Greek media. Year 2005 – 2006 seems to be the group’s zenith until those days. Their album “La Sagrada Familia” was awarded with a golden disc and Nikos ‘NiVo’ Vourliotis was awarded “The Most Stylish Man Of The Year” by Status Magazine Awards, something that can be regarded as an achievement for a rapper considering the Greek mentality, which is fairly far away from its urban counterpart.

With their album ‘Vendetta’, on May 2006, they have achieved a continuous presence in the Top 5 (Greek charts) and more specifically, the album’s leading single ‘'Kalimera Ellada’' ("Goodmorning Greece") was legally downloaded over 200.000 times!
