"Sad..."Geoff Oakes on Renaissance's return
John Hellson - born and raised in the late 70's in a small town of Greece called Krinides (next to the Ancient City Of Fillipi) - had nothing to do with the music scene untill the early 90's.
About John_Hellson /
The only connection - and the main reason he got in touch with music - was his uncle , who owned a club in his town .
At the age of 14 , John started to mix vinyls for the first time in his life there, but several years passed 'till he got into it
more seriously .
His compositions were between several styles of music , trying to find which fits better to him so
at the golden age of RAVES electronic music this became his favourite .
The Prodigy's sounds inspired him and in '95 he and his 2 best friends created their own band , called ECHO TRINITY .
Beside their live shows throughout Greece he was DJing his favourite music , breakbeats .
But at the end of the 90's a new sound came into his ears which played a huge role in his life and carried his music , progressive house .
In the beginning he showed interest in this new kind of music and with the help of some DJs - and friends - he started to collect and spin it in his DJ sets.
At the rise of 2000 he concentrated more on progressive house , always as a DJ , but in 2002 he moved to Germany leaving his band behind ,
trying to make a new step in his life .
Having no contacts in Germany - which prevented him from playing for a while - he clubbed around trying
to understand and to dip into the culture of this brand new world of music .
But also this lack of DJing made him experiment on music production even if it was hard to work on it as he had not much knowledge about it .
With his extreme will and a lot of hard work he finally made it and managed slowly but steady to show his potentials .
After the years passed, the dance music society recognized his talent as proves the support to him .
He released an L.P. and several E.P. 's and remixes in various labels - Deepsessions Recs, Dark Pleasure Recs , 220V Recs to name a few -
and was supported by some well-known names as Christian Cambas , Facundo Mohhr , Federico Epis and many others .
His DJ sets have been heard all around the globe , taking very good critics and having a great attendance .
From raves to break beats to progressive house and now to tech house and techno , John's proves that evolution never stops .
Even if education lacks sometimes, the will to achieve your goals is more than enough .
