Pith

 

Biography:

George Pitropakis, aka dj Pith, was born in Athens in November of 1977 and raised up in a small town of south-east Crete. He showed his passion for music since his early ages and he got his first influences at his teens as he collected records & tapes from several music styles that poked his interest. In high school he did his first steps as a dj and after a period of playing in local places almost everything related to "good music", he got addicted with the dance part of electronic scene and slowly but constantly began to express his point of view through regular dj sets.

Music Explosion in 1998 & Technopolis Org in 2002 were the project names, co-founded & co-managed by Pith, that were responsible for beach & club parties, open air festivals, concerts & various cultural activities that took place those years in the area of east Crete. In 2004, he founded NuSound Act productions, an event promotion alias and a quality electronic music supporter. Performances came, sometimes with international and national top players, sometimes with close friends, but always given from his discrete perspective transmitting his musical ideas with fresh tunes! Since 2006 he has hosted 3 radio shows. NuSound Act Radio Show was broadcasted at one of world’s most popular web radios back then, Danceradio.gr and at most rated Cretan radio station Music Channel 105.1. Now Cosmic Disco by Dj Pith is on air every Thursday evening at 19:00 @ Cretan radios Planet 90,6 & Style 100 which was welcomed with great success. In 2012 he played at Subland club, Berlin and in 2013 corresponding to french Transavia airlines' request, he participated to Travelmix project, by making a mixed session for its passengers, inspired & influenced by Crete island. Nowadays you can find him holding a residency every Friday night at his hometown, Ierapetra as a founding member of Musictenders dj collective. 

Spinning music for more than 15 years outside his bedroom, his dj sets are a mixture of deep-tech, minimalistic house & nu-disco tunes, a blend that he often describes as contemporary dance electronica. So far he has shared decks with names such as: Jim Rivers, Satoshi Tomiie, D-Nox, James Monro, Atmos, Mikele, Tolis Q. Experiments in music production had as result his first tracks. But right now his focus has taken the creation of his own net-label, which will be active soon.
