Born in 1982 in Athens-Greece, Yannis was exposed in several music styles and scenes from an early age. This variety of music styles transmet him a strong passion for an inner quest to find the kind of music that would represent him and express his feelings.
Saxophone and Flute player, having a diploma in music production from Berklee College of music, Yannis started to produce electronic music under the name “dPen”.
Currently, dPen has finished 2 new remixes for Quivver, Anthony Pappa and Chris Fortier for Silence Through Music label, he is working a remix for Universal Music and his is preparing his new monthly web tv show about music productions tip n tricks and new software presentations as he is the first Greek producer and one of the few producers of the scene that has 4 (software / hardware instruments) companies to endorse him as an artist.
In search of his musical world Nick passed through various styles such as jazz & rock. These two major influences quickly led him to piano & guitar lessons.
In the late 90″s when house music was huge in his hometown Athens, Greece, Nick found himself in a club that Danny Tenaglia was playing at… and that’s how all started. This night determined his musical path. Sexy, Deep, Dark House would be his guideline from there after. Through DJ-ing Nick saw the way to express and share his music instincts in the best possible way.
Currently Nick holds a monthly residency @ Venue Club in Athens, Greece. His weekly mix every Monday @ www.danceradioglobal.com is getting bigger week by week. Something that you can verify by watching Nick Warren’s opinion in the last Top 100 DJ poll where he chose Nick for the “most underestimated dj “on the planet & listen to some of Sharam comments such as “Nick gives a flow in his DJ sets close to perfection”.
The first three tracks in this release, inMotion Tech Take Remix, BrianBerg Remix and UM Remix are the result of a remix contest.
Jimmy is born on August 17th in Luik aka Liege in Belgium. As his parents were boatmen he had to attend boarding school from the age of 6 onwards. To overcome the loneliness of boarding school his parents bought him a walkman. That event literally plugged him into music!
He listened a lot to music via tapes and the radio and developed a preference for house music.
After a long period of nagging and begging his parents he finally got the best birthday present ever on his 15th birthday: a music mixer and double deck cd player. Every free second of his time went into his devotion to music.
2 years later Jimmy got the chance to prove himself at a cool club in Antwerp: Het Eilandje.
Success was immediate: he got his first residency!
Not long before he got interested in making his own music. With his savings Jimmy bought his first PC with a sound card and a Korg keyboard. After a few years he discovered his own sound and at the beginning of 2004 he released his first record: Jim-Y – Digital Trumpets. In the meantime he was working on a project with his best friend Ruly. Jimmy had finished a new demo for which he had the perfect voice in mind and boldly he sent it over under the project name R & Y to his favorite vocalist and singer. And guess what! Only 2 weeks later he got contacted by Jan Johnston. Jan had already written the lyrics and called for a date to do the recordings for this song, that is how R&Y Meets Jan Johnston – Its Cold Outside was born.
This single was released in 2007 with remixes from Filterheadz and Sied van Riel.
In 2008 Morning On The Terrace got released on the label Bonzai Fiesta.
At the end of 2008, Ruly decided to stop with the project, and that was when Jim-Y changed into Jimmy Galle. Jimmy’s sound was different as a solo dj/producer. After this period different productions and remixes from him appeared on different labels.
Jimmy has played and is still playing in many known Clubs and on many events such as: Noxx, La Rocca, Café D’ Anvers, Industria, Chakra Party, The Factory, Lazurra, Petrol, De Rodenburg (NL), TranccSession, Playboy Deluxe, De Cinema, Space, Wicked, BBC, De Kaai, Red & Blue, Turbulance….
