DEAS (Karol Mozgawa), based in Cracow/Poland, born in Greece is a music producer and DJ, who is fast becoming one of techno’s most exciting breakthrough artists originating from Eastern Europe. One can recognise his Greek origins and East European upbringing in his music, where enthusiasm and fantasy blends in varying shades of techno.
He believes that music “is never a subject to stereotypes and clichés”. This allows him to think freely and create music without boundaries, in which psychedelics and raw, heavy techno is balanced to perfection with memorable, warm but yet deep melodies. Not yet 30, he has been mastering his production skills for a decade. During this time he developed an impressive studio where most of his music is recorded live.
His hard work is presently coming into a full effect with the releases on a number of labels ranging from Abstract Division’s Dynamic Reflections, Planet Rhythm, Marco Bailey’s MATERIA, and Paul Ritch’s Quartz Rec.
