…::PRODUCTIONS::…

As a producer C.Stavropoulos has made quite a few remixes for several Greek artists such as Vika, A.Andreopoulos, and Marila. After several years of producing tracks his first Official solo release came from Ocean Drive Records in August 2008 under the name “Deep Oblivion”. That’s when the “Chris Oblivion” alias was born since he started getting more and more into the EDM Industry releasing productions like “Your Bravest Knight”, “Telharmonium”, “Arm Your Angel” and “Anger Days” while many of his remixes can be found in several artists. His background as an active sound engineer, his studies on that topic and his experience in working at recording and post produtcion studios for over 15 years, made him experimental and very selective on his sounds.
