Hi Michael ! Tell us a few words about yourself first … you are and you are called … 🙂
Good evening, my name is Michalis Balios, I was born and live in Athens, I am a member of Global Fantasy, which is also based in Athens, and I am professionally involved in Djing and music production.
How did music and DJing come into your life, when did you start your career and what were your motivations?
From a young age I started playing music and Djing, it was the natural evolution of things. As a professional DJ, I have been in the field for the last 5 years as I count a total of just over 10!
I have a particular weakness for Funk, Soul, Jazz and Ethnic listening.
All of these items have contributed to the sound I represent today!
In which category of dance music would you classify yourself? and what kind represents you?
My music is House my sound Afro, Deep.
Tell us a little bit about how you feel when you’re behind decks? tell us about this feeling … the feeling !!
Whatever concerns me does not enter the booth with me, there I am, the music and the people in the space to listen to me! It’s something that fills me, gives me the opportunity to channel my energy into the audience and I wouldn’t change it with anything !!
A few words about your future plans, what is your relationship with social media, the internet and what is your opinion about Vanilla Radio!
I am in a creative phase and I have already signed two music productions, which are expected to be released in the new year. I have accounts on almost all social media, it is one of the advantages of our time as anyone can easily promote their work.
Finally, I wish Vanilla Radio to do the same good and quality work, to support good music and to give a step to all professional artists.
