* Synthetic *
Hailing from the island of Crete Mr. Roussos was influenced by his father's record collection from his early years. He started collecting vinyl from the age of 14 and immediately got hooked to the blooming sound of early House & Techno that was being introduced to Europe at that period. In 1990 at the age of 15 he played his records for the first time in front of an audience in an illegal warehouse party making a strong impression to the crowd. From that point on Dj'ing and record collecting has been his passion and addiction until the present day.
The next step was to promote the music that he embraced by organising various mobile events during the 90's resulting in earning the reputation as one of the key figures in the island's dance music scene. It was a matter of time since he started to get noticed from clubs & promoters from other parts of Greece where he was invited to Dj for various events.
From 2009 till today he is part of the resident Djs for the infamous Six D.O.G.S Club & Astron Bar in Athens. From 2012 to 2018 he created and was part of the REVOLT! events & label company.
The last 5 years Roussos has crossed the Greek borders with appearances in various European spots in Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Bucharest, Stockholm and more. Beyond Europe he was invited to USA and South America for performances in various cities.
During all this time he has shared the decks with acclaimed artists such as: Daniel Bell, Rhadoo, Nina Kraviz, Thomas Melchior, Baby Ford, Jichael Mackson, Shonky, Eric Cloutier, Exos, Lowris, Petre Inspirescu, Ion Ludwig, Praslea, Julietta, Barac, Martinez, Adil Hiani, Herodot, Cristi Cons, Alex Celler, Raresh, Vid, Terry Francis, Dj Sprinkles, Appolonia, Roman Fluegel and more…
Mr. Roussos musical style cant be labelled under a specific genre, he blends old and new in his unique way resulting in an eclectic mix with the finest selection house and techno has to offer.
Thomas Numan is the founder and one of the resident DJs of Synthetic. He has been trying to spread the 'good side' of electronic sound in Thessaloniki and elsewhere. A major influence was his long stay in the UK during the late 90s and 00s. It was there that he started experimenting with mixing and a bit later began organizing his own parties.
Thomas has been building his record collection for more than 15 years now and insists on doing vinyl only sets. These sets do not have labels or limitations, but a characteristic aesthetic and feeling focused on the dance floor.
Over the last few years, he has presented and performed alongside artists such as Juan Atkins, Robert Hood, Moodymann, DVS1, Surgeon, The Black Madonna, Mall Grab, Objekt, Helena Hauff, Function, Gerd Janson, Peggy Gou and Palms Trax among many others.
