I used to have weekly residencies at Horostasio (1995-2002), Odd (2002-2004), Underworld (2005-2008) then i opened my own club , Second Skin (2008-2019) where i djed of course as well on a weekly basis, plus booking gigs or promoting my events (like Torture Garden Athens or Venus In Furs to name but a few ). Since closing down Second Skin, i’ve been working as a freelancer dj in various clubs in Athens (like Horostasio, well yes, here i am again , 2 Ten or Selofan bar)
During the years they have invited me to dj in USA, UK, Russia, Spain, Israel, Austria, Finland ,Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia
