“Part of only a small and very much underground music scene in his hometown of Venice, Gigi Masin self released two modestly pressed LP’s ‘Wind’ (1986) and ‘Wind Collector’ (1991) and appeared along side Charles Hayward for the Sub Rosa compilation LP “Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre Volume 2” (1988).Having met with little commercial success in Italy at the time, Gigi Masin’s solo albums remained for the most part totally unknown. His music has though in recent years, and seemingly by pure word of mouth, developed almost something of a cult following.Gigi Masin’s uniquely intricate and at times deeply emotive compositions take the listener into a realm of contemplation, a spellbound mind state where time and space appear to dissolve. His sparse and hypnotic often loop-based compositions seem to draw parallels with Detroit Techno’s earliest beginnings, all at once conjuring those same feelings of both melancholic longing and ecstatic joy.With access to Masin’s large body of work, far greater than that of the handful of released recordings, Music From Memory’s new compilation covers a period of over 30 years, from the mid 1980’s up until recent works . Including seventeen compositions, most of which have remained unreleased or unavailable until now, ‘Talk To The Sea’ aims to shine a light on Gigi Masin’s unique and heartfelt talent. This is electronic music from the soul.”

For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have)
Yorgos has been listening to music and discovering different genres/subgenres for over 20 years now, and it all truly began for him with Gorillaz, Daft Punk, and Audioslave.
Those bands marked his music taste for what he is today, it also helped him develop a very strange yet interesting personality (although he's never really been too eager to socialize constantly). He's a pretty laidback guy who's easy to talk to but can sometimes be misinterpreted because of his blunt and accentuated way of speaking and thinking. He's good willed and harmless.
Back in 2006 he was having an overwhelmingly good music boom and not all of the music he wanted to stream was uploaded in Youtube so he made it his duty to upload and share all that missing music through a channel he created called Funkroza, in there people would find all the missing French Touch / Funky House music and later one some more genres. Over time he’s amassed almost 9 million views but his golden days are yet to return.At some point he felt like trying several music programs to remix his favourite songs but most of them were, in his words, “pretty trashy”. After some years he slowly drifted away and semi-abandoned it but has got fully back to it in 2020.
While he's always had trouble reading because of apprehensive problems he's always had a thing for philosophy, and philosophizing. This is also a very important thing for him when it comes to music. He is a natural overthinker and music is one of the subjects.
Nature is also a very appealing thing to him, it's what drives his feelings into the very best version of themselves.
