Nektarios, who is of Greek descent, is the new sound of melodic trance music. He is a Wall Street businessman by day, and a trance music producer by night. His music not only caught the attention of thousands of fans, but it also caught the attention of legendary trance singers Kirsty Hawkshaw and Jan Johnston. Being so impressed by his work, they collaborated with Nektarios on a few productions.
He lived in Greece for nine years before coming back to the USA, and started a business that does computer consulting for Wall Street firms. In addition, he started his own dance record label, “Nektron Records” where he releases his productions through.
Music has always been a passion in Nektarios’ life. He started listening to trance and techno from the very early days and watched the scene evolve. His intense desire to be able to create melodic trance music, made him self teach himself the art of music composition and production — despite his extremely busy schedule on Wall Street. His aim is to create melodies that will deeply inspire and take the listener to another world.
The quality of his productions is evident by the number of fans following him worldwide. For example, on Facebbook and MySpace he has accumulated thousands of loyal fans from all over the world.
Nektarios’ music ambition does not stop with dance music. He also enjoys composing for films, and has composed for a number of short films. His goal is to integrate trance music more into films.
He has also done party promotions in New York City by bringing well known DJs from Europe. For example, one party was on a 11,000 square foot space in Manhattan which featured lasers and visuals.
His main influence has been Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Robert Miles, Accuface, Sean Tyas, and others. He plans on releasing his first album in the near future, which will be followed by a CD launch party somewhere in Manhattan.
