Episode #11

Thodoris Triantafillou was born in Athens in 1977. from the early 80s he started listening to different styles of music, thanks to tapes that friends and family passed to him. in the beginning of the 90s, when the rave scene was exploding, he started buying vinyl records and spin them at a local radio station and many parties and clubs in Athens. back then he bought his first PC and started composing music and doing some productions for friends. on 1999 he released his first single and album which was digitally released and distributed for free via his website metadubsoundesign (MDSD). in the 00s Thodoris released 5 EPs as one half of the NOVOX project. after that he decided to work as a solo artist. many EPs and remixes came out on Katchuli, Quantized Music, Souvenir Recordings, Orpheas Music, Diaphan Music, Genowefa Recordings amongst others. the results were many sales and support from DJs like Nick Warren, Roberto Rodriguez,James Zabiela, Richie Hawtin, Groove Armada, Tiefschwarz, Dennis Ferrer, Jerome Sydenham, Josh Wink, Brothers Vibe, Phonique plus many others.he also is the co-owner of the Rhythmetic label which is also based in Athens. his latest works are released on Rhythmetic label.

his moto is "Music is not a format, it's freedom, amusement, mood and spreading love". so, under that moto, he still makes music that expresses him. as he says: "The quality and the mood of the final result is the one that counts and not the genre/style that you are playing". after 18 years as a DJ he has played the most of the music genres like Drum & Bass, Breaks, Hip Hop, Soul, RNB, Techno, House,
Dub, Disco, Trip Hop, Jazz. and this can be heard on his releases and productions.
Thodoris has played at the biggest clubs in Greece like Dybbuk, Cavo Paradiso, Animal, W Club, Tango, Monroe, Block33. he has also played abroad in places like Germany and United Kingdom. currently, he is resident at the Deepsoul Collective nights together with Theo Tag, G Spice and Kosta Tee, running weekly in downtown Athens. stretching over two hours, this show has proven to be a nicely drawn back to back mix between your host and a man of many milestones. respect for coming down and gracing the wheels of the Blackball show..
