Falcos Panagiotis (artist name: Falcos Deejay) is a British/Greek music producer and DJ.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Born in Thessaloniki, Greece (February 7, 1995) and grew up in Sykia Chalkidiki. At the age of 13, Panagiotis was working on his family business (restaurant). Johnathan Lewis (ellaskins) with his videos influenced Panagiotis to get his first own equipment and start DJing. About music production, his inspirations was from Laidback Luke, Robbie Rivera, Thomas Gold, David Guetta, Chuckie, Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk.
As a DJ, Panagiotis started mixing when he was 14 years old, by performing on home parties and various local events. He has his own online shows called “Falcos Deejay Sessions” (only for licensed tracks) and “Falcos Deejay Club Sessions” (just for Mixcloud). Some of his charts published on the biggest DJ Magazine in Greece (Bliss Magazine Greece) and on Beatport. Many DJs know Panagiotis just from a single mix which was uploaded on YouTube in 2010 called “TOP CARNIVAL DANCE SONGS! HITLIST!” and got around half million views.
His production career started at the age of 15. It was all started on a school trip, when he saw and got the first music production software in a box from a local store in Thessaloniki. With few piano lessons on his childhood and also some help of his godmother (music teacher), Panagiotis gained his production skills. At the age of 18 applied for the electronic music production course and few months later got certified by SAE Institute London.
