DJ and co-founder of No Smoking Recordings
. Vasilis was born on January 28, 1983 in Larissa, Greece. Music has always been a part of his life thanks to the influence by his two older sisters - really passionate with music - that nurtured his enthusiasm since an early age. While growing up, Vasilis studied the piano for 6 years and, consequently, he formalized a solid knowledge of music theory. In 1998, he purchased his first computer so as to compose his own music. As a professional, Vasilis has held positions at several software firms of Greece. Self-taught, Vasilis has refined his sound engineering and sound mastering techniques, through years of practice and exploration.
Nowadays, V-Sag's productions are supported by prominent DJs and producers worldwide, including John Digweed
, Deep Dish
, Dave Seaman
, James Holden
, Gabriel & Dresden
and Pole Folder
. In addition, his productions are released by several respected and forward-thinking labels.
In 2005, Vasilis and DJ Tarkan
while doing collaborative productions, became close friends, went on tours together and their friendship resulted in the No Smoking Recordings
. This first Greek-Turkish label ever aims to release high-quality deep and progressive house music.
