Thessaloniki / Greece
(Rotary Cocktail | Upon.You)
Echonomist was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. At early age, his family got him a basic synthesizer (GEM) and hired a music teacher to teach him traditional Greek music in order to entertain his family on Sundays. Much to his family’s dismay, the plan didn’t seem as interesting to Petros as creating weird sounds with his small harmonium and recording his first tracks. Soon, he finished his first downtempo album and formed his first music project called „IνΦο“. Performing live with his band, consisting of live musicians and a vocalist, they covered a wide spectrum of electronic downtempo music, releasing 3 studio albums until 2009, gaining some considerable fame-mainly in the Greek electronic music scene.
Always on the lookout for new sounds and music, he soon began to DJ, discovering the full range of electronic dance music. At this point he started his own solo project as Echonomist, releasing his first tracks on labels such as Resopal, Upon You Records, Time Has Changed, and Dessous Recordings.
Today, more than ever, Echonomist is driven by his passion for musical creativity. He has evolved into a professional DJ, producer, and live performer. While his style may vary somewhere between underground Tech House and Techno, he never compromises on quality. A fact that found him a place amongst the most prolific producers worldwide. His elaborate live performances have been met with international acclaim. It’s all about devotion to the sound and a restless quest for the groove that will make everyone move.
