My name is Argy but you might know me as ARGY. I was born in Greece and grew up in an airplane. When I was a child my idol was anybody unconventional, because I am a Taurus. When I was fifteen, I started producing. It was then when I realised that I would want to make music for the rest of my life and decided to move to London. Since then I never looked back. One of my best gigs I played was Panorama Bar at the age of 19. It was so much fun and a lot of stress and very rewarding. One of the best gigs I have been to was Derrick May at Weekend Club Berlin. I loved his style and attitude.
Now I live in London with music gear. In my house you can find music gear and furniture and my refrigerator is usually full with breakfast stuff. I enjoy walking and the big city life a lot. I can spend hours in a DIY shop. One of my favorite places to visit is Tokyo, because it’s a cliche but I am still happy to ride the wave because it’s so worth it.
On weekdays I enjoy the home life and on weekends I usually travel for work.
My favorite song at the moment is Vangelis – La Petite Fille De La Mer. A film I watched lately and really liked was A Single Man. The last series I watched and loved was something when I was 5.
I am very inspired by disciplined individuals. My dream is to have no dream. My worst nightmare is to have unfulfilled dreams.
I love small things and healthy routine and hate cravings.
I am addicted to a sweet routine, I just cannot stop being curious.
I get totally fucked up, when I am frustrated with a new song that I am producing. The next day I need to solve the puzzle.
Local Suicide reminds me of a punk band that it would be cool to say that I am into.
Tomorrow I will be alive. Next month I will be alive. Next year I will be alive. In 10 years I hope to be alive.
If I wasn’t a musician, I would be a designer.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, it wouldn’t be more exciting than now, because I have a good agent. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be protected.
If I was a car, I would be a Jaguar E Type. If I was an animal, I would be a Jaguar. If I was a drug I would be Paracetamol. If I was an invention, I would be anything by BAYER. If I was an object, I would be a cup of coffee. If I could date myself, I would run out of patience. If I could play with anyone it would be with a dog. I would like to collaborate with R. Sakamoto. If I had only one wish, it would be to have another 100. I would never wish for anything, because what’s the point?.
My word of advice to the reader would be to breathe with your stomach.
