His influences came from many styles that characterizes the scene. As aguitar and keybord player with much enthusiasm and strong influences from the europian psychedelic music, he creates deep progressive dancefloor
oriented music. Infinity’s productions incorporate a strong rhythmic and musical feel whilst remaining deep and stompy – a combination which gets any progressive
floor moving. We have a little questions and answers chat with him on what the scene is like in Greece and about what South African’s can expect from him at the Equinox Outdoor Electronic Experience…
How would you categorise the Greek Electronic Music scene?
The Greek trance scene is growing more and more with time, artists’ wise especially. We have great artists at the moment, offering great pumping and Progressive – as my friend Tassos, says, music around the globe. It’s pretty nice when Greeks are going deeper into the scene and make people smile, with nice sounds. But if we speak about the people, then most of them who like Progressive Trance are located in Thessaloniki. In Athens, where I live, the Prog scene is very small and the Psy, Full-On, and Dark is bigger.
Have you been to South Africa before and what have you heard about the Trance Festival culture over here?
What can SA expect from your set at EQUINOX this year?
S.A can expect a lot of melodies. If they want to dream then they will, because my music (the live sets) is all about feeling and not dancing so much. I like to express my tracks making “music” and not just a dancing groove loop. It’s all about giving something to the track, even if it’s not working so well for dancing. But at car or at home you can fly.
Your music is described as the type that takes the listener on journeys of self discovery. What are a few of the elements that make up a good composition for you?
As I said before it’s the melodies, that’s the main element in my tracks. It’s not all about getting a good groove beat and dance but also about saying a story in the tracks! I’m always having a different story in my tracks, which are feelings from my personal experiences or situations. I never open a track to produce without feeling something, and that can be pain or happiness, sadness or spirituality. It depends on the time.
Your idea of perfect happiness is…
That’s a question that I need hours to answer. But the happiest factors for me, and I guess for all the people, are to be healthy and to love and respect each other. Everything else is just bullshit. Money, cars, fame or power are all feelings of evil. So, health and love are what matters and then this world might have a chance to survive…
Well from my live set I love the track “Be Real”, from Haldolium which I recently remixed, and it’s coming out soon at Iono Music in a brand new Ep. I also love the tracks “Car Accident“, “Lost in the Sunlight” and “Alcoholism“, from my debut album. From my other project, Progenitor, I love the tracks “Ultimate Trip“, “Typical Human Behaviour” and “Sound Reflex“, which I always play when I do the Progenitor live.
