plei_a_dian dj (Constantino C.)
A Fusion of Deep House with Tribal texture, dash of Techno & a spoonful of jazzy-funk Togetherness.
With two gramophones in front of him, when Pleiadian DJ performs his wide range of musical collection he elevates the atmosphere progressively towards the crescendo of the night. He changes dynamically through out his set due to his long-term experience and over whelming mixing technique. Moving from loungy feel to a very energetic Club atmosphere. Thanks to his original sound and creative drive, the whole set sound like a continuous record taking the audience along to a captivate journey that stimulates all emotions. Nevertheless, Pleiadian DJ is very Universal and is not a problem for him to play different kinds of sets to suit the crowd.
His influence in music started at a very young age by his brother who was collecting Top 20 UK&USA chards along with big collection of classic Rock (Pink Floyd) & 80’s Rock . His first experiment with electronic sounds and production was at the age of 12 in high school when he had to complete a project about the space shuttle Challenger in Music class. The project was about to describe the incident using sounds derived from a Yamaha DX7.
Later on, in1992 at the age of twenty he decided to move to Athens (Greece) for his studies. At that time as everybody knows was the first major impact of house movement. Constantino C. (AKA) Plei_a_dian DJ got into collecting more and more electronic music and his passion for music grew even more. During the period of five years, every summer in his homeland (Cyprus, Greece) he had his residency at a Club at that time called Underground now Mythology" spinning alternative rock and psychedelic trance. That was what triggered his decision in getting more involved in the music industry and following his passion.
