DJing and organizing parties since 1992, talented producer / DJ Christos Demertzis (PiCi) burst onto the Greek electronic scene in 2002 with his electro-pop Decades project and the highly acclaimed “The First” album for the eclectic Poeta Negra label. With further releases for Relax Records and Klik Records under the PiCi alias, he quickly established himself as one of the most interesting and diverse artists around, with production work spanning several musical styles ranging from deep house and classic Detroit techno to more experimental and ambient electronics.

On the recent Internasjonal release 'A Mistake' the flipside featured a sublime and focused cosmic disco beauty - "2015". I loved it the first time I heard it and it became my 'Track Of The Week' on my 'Ideal Friends' radio show last Sunday. Listen to the tune below on the Juno player - I hope you like it. If it floats your musical boat, my radio show where I played it (I think you will love the show - brand new music and classic cuts of all different types of music) can be listened to right here, right now. Thanks (I hope!).

So, I've got my guaranteed tickets for Glastonbury festival (even though I'm lining up playing a few DJ sets down there) and I CANNOT wait. I love that place. I love all festivals, but in particular I love Glastonbury.

I'm really looking forward to maybe seeing some of you next June on Worthy Farm or any other festival I will be playing. Let's be honest, I'm dying to get in a field and forget about everything for just a few beautiful days. :-) #home
 
 
With no 'Ideal Friends' radio show on today (back next week though on a brand new radio station) I managed to grab some quality studio time. I've got loads of good tracks lined up and I'll be in the studio a lot more in 2013. I cannot wait to play you my tunes on my radio show or at my gigs. :-) #lovemusic
 
 
I'm lining up loads of venues and festivals to play at in 2013 and I'm also speaking to some quality Manchester venues for a regular "Ideal Friends" gig night. Looking forward to getting back on the road! Stay close - I'll keep you updated via this website. :-)
 
 
My 'Track Of The Week' on last Sundays 'Ideal Friends' radio show was from Rassek with his fantastic interpretation of the classic Rock 'n' Roll tune 'Riders Of The Storm' by The Doors. Reworked with help from Kiko Navarro from Spain, Socio Robots from Dubai and RedDub from Tehran it's a rumbling juggernaut of utter bliss. Great beats, a deephouse feel, beautiful keys... what more do you want! Check it out using the Soundcloud player below.

If you like it, you'll probably love the radio show where it was my Track Of The Week and you can listen to the show in full now. And if you like that, more of my radio shows are also available on this website.
