Biography

Location: Athens, Greece Greece
Genre: Tech House

Stathis Kalatzis is hidden behind the Mr.Statik moniker. Born in 1978, he grew up in Volos, where his musical influences go back to 1990 and the rising hardcore/breakbeat scene. Several parties, moving to Athens to study Political Science at Panteion University and a firm embrace of techno music lead to the form of Improvize- a mobile party with fellow dj Chevy aiming at bringing a fresh sound of techno and house in all its forms. During 2003 he performed in more gigs and club nights, and had the chance to make a wonderful trip to Cape Town with the Red Bull Music Academy. In the beginning of 2005 he forms the Mud Max project alongside amigo Motek (first releases out on Balkon and Ware). After the second half of 2006, Mr Statik starts to work solo as well, signing his first eps in labels such as Karloff, Stock5 and Octopus with a variety of tracks which embrace his moodier and atmospheric side…2007 finds him djing between his local residency at Fetisch and gigs abroad (with Monegros Festival and Tresor standing out as highlights) whereas in 2008 more releases and international appearances are on the way alongside a signing to UK label Immigrant and Berlin’s Rotary Cocktail and Perplex. 2009 kicks off with a series of rmxs, further appearances across Europe and a signing to Bpitch Control’s sister label Memo. In 2010 he continues working heavily on rmxing duties for various artists/labels, while preparing his BPitch Control comeback and touring between Germany, France and Spain. He signs his first ep “Lust but not leashed for Berlin based Mo’s Ferry released in autumn and Sinphony (feat. The Boy) to the Werkschau compilation on Bpitch Control. 2011 is the year that he solidifies his involvement to the berlin label both with rmxing Jahcoozi and landing his debut ep “Even giants have a soft spot” in late May, while getting back to the studio preparing new beats on various side projects as well.
