ADAMINTOWN Magazine Interview
What is your story and achievements in life?
I was born in Athens. From early age I was influenced by the sounds of r&b, soul and jazz that made me immediately progress to House music. All these led me to choose to learn piano and that was the point where I got into music production. Since that was not enough, I realised that in order to upgrade my production skills I needed more education; therefore I decided to study sound engineering and music technology. As a DJ, I first used the decks in front of an audience in 2006, since then I have played in venues and clubs all over Greece. My skills have allowed me to play along with some of the biggest names in the house music scene! Over the past 10 years as Chris IDH i have released many tracks with various well known international labels such as Suma records, Look At You records , Quantize recordings, King Street Sounds, Deeptone, Suma and many more… When in the studio i love to experiment with new breaking sounds and create tracks that even though are fresh, they have a respect for the original sound of House music. And finally, after a lot of years & experience, a clear picture came to my mind of what i wanted & needed to do. So I started to produce atmospheric songs that were influenced by melodic & emotional elements and became one of the main of artists of Bercana Music. An idealism, where electronic sounds echo the organic textures of the cosmos & the deep bounds of existence. An overwhelming expedition to all places & dimensions.
