One may indentify Jannis Siopis as the former Silversurfer from Crosstown Rebels, a rather raw, dark and mysterious lad in his early days.
His roots derive from a traditional Greek background in a modern German setting. A classical love affair with his clarinet and trumpet later coincided with his creative talent for breakdancing, graffiti art and spinning records, ultimately, landing him DJ gigs in almost every club across the Greek Islands. The big move to the “electronic music metropolis” – Berlin, was a careful one yet a wise one, launching his musical career into full swing.
„Welcome to Berlin“ was born, The Tune of 2003. Artist and label cooperations with Kiki, Bpitchcontrol and Playhouse followed. International club icons from the likes of, The End, Souvenir, The Firm and many more established Jannis Siopis as one of the most wanted underground DJs, live acts and producers worldwide.
Currently, Siopis is signed and successfully releasing with Get Physical Records. His new sound and image make-over keeps Siopis at the decks, busy with remix requests from Front Room‘s Jessie Rose to Extended Play‘s and Leftroom‘s Chris Duckenfield.
Siopis has shaped his beats into a groovier, house affair sticking to his fundamental elements and continuing to keep his sets and releases just as respectable as they always were.
