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.

Everybody has their own definition of “better” and not everyone can be “happy” all the time, some people understand happiness as something extremely simple and easy to achieve, while others require a lot of effort on behalf of their environment to achieve said happiness.
What if something or someone is controlling what we do?, is there anything we can do about it?, should we suffer the consequences of what we can’t control?

Music’s really simple – ultimately.
It hits your ears and makes you feel.
it “adds” something.
You may not like what it does, but it creates a response.

Sometimes the energy of a track is irresistible and you have to stop what you’re doing and check it out. I had been chatting with producer Michael Carey about just how much great music was “out there” and yet with the current distribution bottle neck – we get to hear so little of it.

How perfect that this track is named “Dishes & Wishes”. If I had to rank all my household chores from best to worst, washing dishes would always be at the top of my list. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that my legs are free to dance to whatever Deep House track is currently bumping out of my laptop speakers.

Since today is International Women’s Day I thought it would be most appropriate to feature one of my favorite DJs, Lady Blacktronika. She was one of the first friends I made when I arrived to Berlin and also the first person to ever tell me not to refer to “Techno” as “Electro.” When I asked her why, she said, “just don’t.” Duly noted Lady Black.

This track could have been written two hundred years ago and yet – it sounds wonderfully modern and unique.
I really love this remix of Dugong’s “What May Come” because Öona Dahl really transformed the original song into something completely different. Bringing it straight to the dance floor she enhances it with dream like soundscapes but still brings enough punch to keep it super friendly for dancing. She stays true to herself as an artist while still respecting the original version. It’s a truly perfect remix and you can tell a lot of passion and heart went into it.

Chemical Brothers have come up with an instantly like able, contemporary, poppy anthem with an insanely catchy rolling bass-line and 90s computer game style synths. Add to that the relentless rapping of Q-Tip and you’ve got a song that will have you moving in no time.
