Born in Rhodes, Greece in the mid eighties, Argy started drawing at a very young age.  Although having great potential in becoming a professional painter, he one day woke up and didn't feel like drawing again.  Ever.  Music had come to replace the outlet of artistic expression in his life. The acoustic and rhythmic sound of bossa nova and a love of the New York house (with influence from DJ's such as Kevin Yost, Masters at work and Parisian Dj Gregory) persuaded him and acted as his main influences when he began djing at the age of 14. Argy started getting into a more electronic sound by the late nineties with labels such as ESL, G-stone and Compost.  In fact, it was only after his London move that he widened his vision and sound continuum expanding his musical tastes to follow a more electronic conduit, refining his ear and developing himself as a producer.  Subsequently, in synchrony with the progression of the dance music industry, Argy found himself producing a more futuristic, electronic sound based on his main musical influences. Like many electronic music producers, Argy felt the pull towards a city where the electronic music scene was thriving - a promise of greater potential, and an outlet in which his passion could be fervent.  In 2003, with these thoughts in mind, Argy moved to London.  His first big break took place in 2005 with the signing of his first EP, 'Love Dose' on the renowned German label, Poker Flat Recordings.  It was after this initial success that his career really started to take shape.  His ingenuity and distinctiveness opened doors for him as he gained respect as an artist.  Argy was soon releasing on Raum Musik and was happy to have the opportunity to make another EP for Poker Flat.  Argy was improving his reputation in the electronic music scene.  He found the encouragement through all of these successive movements and his creativity endured.  Music is something innate to him, a way for him to express himself and direct his thoughts, putting into sound exactly what he feels in the moment. Waiting for 'La Pasion' EP on Poker Flat and the 'Comerte' EP (as Joubin's Cousin) on Cargo Edition, in summer 2006 he took advantage of the opportunities that came up to work on several remixes for various artists.  He is an artist that believes in the natural elements of music production; "I like music that is original, raw and unpretentious".  He regards himself with the same scrutiny as he does other producers holding clear-cut principles about the nature and the risk of music making, professing 'I like people who mess around and are unpredictable.  People who have talent and don|t need to depend on personal contacts". While Argy reserves live performing for more ambitious album projects, he has been blowing away the crowds of prestigious club nights with his dynamic, colorful and sensual dj sets.  When listening to his sets, one will find that he plays a wide range of musical styles and genres.  From old Warp records to US House/Garage, minimal house, techno, disco funk and even straight-up Latin! The Future is bright and adventurous for Argy, as he refuses to become trapped in a particular style of music or any single scene, preserving his worldly influences and conveying them through his work.  He is of a special breed of musicians that express, without hindrance, their true nature through music, in the most untainted and true way possible.
