Greek-born and classically trained, Stelios has carved his path in electronic music by traversing the globe as a DJ and live performer, playing shows in a variety of locations and settings – from intimate underground clubs in Beirut, festivals in Miami, and performances in the European dance meccas of Ibiza and London, to the frenetic party hub of Buenos Aires.

Now, entering a new phase of his career, Stelios prepares to unveil his sophomore album, a collection of works that marks a departure from the narrow confines of the dance floor and represents the essence of what he’s all about – an album that merges the limitless possibilities of electronic music with his formidable training in composition and arranging, a project that is set to engage and entice audiences across a broad spectrum. The outcome of his bold endeavor is a balanced compilation of grand compositions, paired with subtle, nuanced pieces.
Stelios’ 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 a versatile and consistent artist of the highest calibre, will endure.
