TIP067 Dio S

It was 1995 that Dio S started playing out the records he collected from a younger age. The soul of house music and the energy of early progressive house was evident in each and every set. All that with a pint of Techno music in the end. Everybody loved that!! Years passed, Dio S kept djing around Greece and he also had a residency on the Radio, spreading his sound. Recently he shared the decks with Kosmas Epsilon, Elias Tzikas & Steve Mill. Dio S started getting into production in 2005, always trying to learn more and more about the Sound. Of course, having Electronic music as the main influence (and artists such as James Holden, Kosmas Epsilon, Pryda), he created tracks ready for the dancefloor, but with more of a depth, making it possible to sound equally good at home. It’s early 2009 and he has already released his first tracks to Method, Soho Music Movement, Atlant Digital & Solid Fabric. Also, he has releases to Maktub & Epsilon Trax,Sick Watona & Baroque. His music has already gained great feedback & support from Groove Armada, Eric Prydz, Logiztik Sounds, Kosmas Epsilon, Shawn Mitiska, Chloe Harris, Cid Inc, Markus Schulz & many more quality djs. The facts prove that there’s a bright future coming for Dio S, he has already finished more music to get released in the coming months this year.
