Lazaros (DE)

Lazaros has been a constant in the electronic music scene for almost two decades or as he states ‘I am music and I have been around for almost my whole life.‘ Over the years Lazaros has not only built up a reputation for himself as a DJ, but at the same time has created and defined his own unique sound as a producer. The soundshaping process has led the Cologne resident to a different approach in his productions over the years not saying that he perceives music completely different now than in the beginning or as he puts it: ‘I don‘t think about a specific club, when I produce a track. I just want it to sound right in its whole.‘ But a change in terms of sound was inevitable for him yet natural as it was part of his personal development. In 2015 Lazaros came up with releases and remixes reflecting his musical approach on Kompakt‘s label KX or Moodmusic leaving footprints in the scene. Last year saw the artist dropping tracks and EPs on Frankey & Sandrino‘s label Sum Over Histories, KX and his highly anticipated ‘GE EP‘ on Nautilus Rising, that put him under the radar of renowned DJs. His ‘Visitors EP‘ including the track ‘Under The Sun‘ – marked Lazaros‘ start into 2017 and the return to long term friend Sandrino and his Sum Over Histories label. With a release catalogue as strong as Lazaros‘ there is definitely a whole lot more to expect in the future.

Why Lazaros?

“With Lazaros we wanted to point a reality we are facing here in Greece. The fact that a vast number of artists from the country are moving from the country to search for better conditions, and opportunities to showcase their talents. Some of them get recognised and then return to Greece regularly to perform. But there are so many others still with high skills that are somehow forgotten or there is not much attention to them, despite the fact that their career says otherwise.   Lazaros with releases on Kompakt and other labels,  is such a case and we want to present him in Greece.”
