“Meet the artist in six questions”
dPen – One Fine Day
1. Please tell us who you are, where you are from and more about yourself.
I born and raised in Athens Greece.
I am a Flute and Saxophone player, I was also a professional Baseball player till a big injury right before the Olympic Games of Athens in 2004, I have a Bachelor degree in Sports Science from the University of Athens, a Master degree in molecular physiology from the Medical School of the University of Athens and also a master degree in sound engineering and audio mastering from Berklee College of Music in Boston (USA).
I run my own Analog Mixing and Mastering studio having really great labels and artists on the roster and I have 2 new Record labels. “The Last of Us Music” and “Diez Mil Recods”
2. How would you describe your sound.
Dark, hypnotic, melodic and some times melancholic!
3. What are your influences
I will not say that my influences are other musicians as I don’t go to parties and I don’t listen to dj sets. Believe it or not, I get a big inspiration from the street lights, I mean from the whole atmosphere that is been created from the reflections on the streets the cars the buildings etc during the night and from the Nature generally speaking.
4. What are your interests outside of music.
I am also into fitness industry plus and I am looking forward to do my PhD.
5. If you could change anything in the world, what would it be.
People, we are terrible beings and also the stupidity of Human Nature. As Albert Einstein once said, “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I am not sure about the former.”
6. What’s next for you as an artist.
I have some original tracks of mine coming out from my labels plus I did some collaborations with my good friends and great artists Kosmas Epsilon and Stelios Vasiloudis, so I am looking really forward to release these tracks and do some more!
