RIGEL[GR] full-on psy
Shining with approximately 40.000 times the luminosity of the Sun, Rigel is the brightest star in our local region of the Milky Way and the eponym of greek psy-prodigy Rigel aka Vasilis Bekropoulos from Patras who joined our crew on the ark for preserving the variety in psytrance.
In his early teen years Rigel experimented with electronic kits, constructing basic musical flip-flop circuits, LFOs, etc. Once he got his hands on fast tracker and his first soundcard, the avid juggler Vasilis quickly moved to juggling audio in the computer. Focusing on soft modular synth tweakage, he began producing in various styles of electronic music. With a vast range of musical influences – from Techno and Trance to Jazz and Funk, from Chill-Out to D’n’B – he funnelled his character into a charismatic and eclectic psychelectronica sizzling with freshness. During the following years, he attended multimedia studies, won computer music competitions and made himself a solid name playing live and as DJ in various clubs and on open air festivals, as well as with writing and producing for TV and radio commercials, theatre plays, circus shows, remixes and more. Since then Rigel has evolved to a full fledged powerhouse and legitimate bearer of his moniker.
