Argy

Dance music moves famously quickly. It means that sounds, scenes and selectors can all come and go in a matter of months. Although that is essential to the survival of the genre, it means only the truest artists remain relevant for more than one season.

Artist’s Biography


In no uncertain terms, Greek born, London based producer Argy is one of
those. He has now been releasing music for more than a decade yet remains as
fresh and in focus as any overnight, hyped up hero you can name. Right back in his
teenage years did Argy first realise he had a passion for aesthetics. It was sound
design that really turned him on, and as such he immediately set about making the
transformation from audience to exhibitor. “I had, and have, a strong urge to express
and communicate my vision,” he says, and he has more than backed that up over
the years, both as a probing producer and dexterous DJ who has been playing at the
celebrated Panorama Bar since 20 years of age and who has held Ibiza residencies
at clubs like Amnesia, Space, Destino and Pacha in the last few years. In his time,

he has excelled at everything from minimal to house to techno, Krautrock to song-
based UK bass with a stream of excellent EPs and no fewer than four LPs on labels

such as Poker Flat, Cocoon, Objektivity, Desolat, as well as his own These Days
label, the legendary Bedrock and Luciano’s Cadenza.
Argy has collaborated with artists as diverse as Kerri Chandler and Manuel
Göttsching, and is surely the youngest artist to manage to gather such a vast and
diverse body of work in this scene. “You know the feeling when you visit the record
store and you hear a record and it’s so good you get frustrated you didn’t make it
yourself? That’s the kind of product I want to be putting out,” says Argy, who also
recognises how important it is to enjoy the music making process and to imbue it
with real life experiences and worldly authenticity. It means that when all is said and
done, he leaves behind him music that really means something, that has a real place
in the world and a unique sense of character. Often impervious to ephemeral trends
and remaining resolutely on his own path, he avoids gimmicks and aims to leave
behind a real lasting legacy. He has always, since day one, done things
independently and has always had an ear for fellow talents such as The Martinez
Bros and Solomun, who he worked with as far back as 2008, years before the rest of
the world caught on. Argy, then, has defiantly gone his own way in the last decade.
All this proves he is a versatile producer who has never repeated the same trick
twice and is an artist that can move in and out of scenes with ease. One of the
highlights of the musician’s versatile catalogue is his recent remix credits for his
soundtrack collaboration with The Martinez Brothers, reworking Hardfloor’s ‘Deep
Inside’, for the needs of the latest 212 perfume campaign by fashion giant Carolina
Herrera.
Argy’s residency in Mykonos, one of the most talked-about series of parties on the
popular island, returns this summer at MONI club, alongside an extended tour
throughout Europe as well as festivals such as Hideout and many more. At the same
time, his annual birthday bash in one of Berlin’s most prestigious clubs, Wilde
Renate, will again host one of the lengthiest line-ups ever showcased by the club.
