Hailing from Athens, Greece, Stelios Vassiloudis poses a triple threat as a composer, producer and DJ. Having been active in the electronic music scene since the early 2000s he has cultivated his own brand of distinctive ambience reflective of his rich and diverse musical background; transcending the dance floor via an emotional narrative of complex soundscapes, intricate harmonies and hypnotic rhythms.
‘White Cells’ is the second release in the lead up to Stelios’ forthcoming record, All Else Fails. After a deep dive in a folder filled with countless remedied loops and jams, Stelios wanted to make space for some broken beat, intelligent electronica on the album. With a funky 5/4 groove, ‘White Cells’ came to life, punctuated with a flurry of wavering synths and bells. The release is accompanied by contrasting remixes from Tokyo-based Yui Onodera and the Berlin-based John Dalagelis.
Ten years on from his last full-length, All Else Fails is a stimulating odyssey to anyone listening. Harmonically dense, arcadian glistens seep throughout the ten tracks, each complementary to the next. Bask in the wistful iridescence and you won’t be disappointed.
Stelios carved his way into electronic music by traversing around the globe as a DJ and performer – performing at intimate underground bars in Beirut, festivals in Miami, after-hours in Tokyo, beaches in Goa and mega clubs in Argentina. Having developed a formidable discography on esteemed labels such as Bedrock, Poker Flat, Ovum, Constant Sound and Darkroom Dubs, among others, Stelios’ studio prowess and coveted productions cemented his reputation as a versatile and acclaimed artist. His intense passion and drive for innovation in music serves as the fuel to keep him inspired and relevant, qualities that no doubt ensure his reputation as an artist of the highest calibre will endure.
