Dimi Angélis ( Smallville, Len Series)


Dimi Angélis is a Dutch producer, and techno DJ, born on island of Corfu, Greece, but grown up in the Netherlands, where he has been in touch with music since his youth. Until the age of 21 he was inspired and driven by rock music, which he put into practice through playing saxophone and drums.
In the summer 1992, during his stay on Mallorca, he discovered house music for the first time. Over the coming years he absorbed influences by various house artists, which inspired him to get actively involved with house music himself: in 1997 he became a DJ.
His biggest influences became Laurent Garnier and predominantly Steve Rachmad and Jeff Mills. Steve Rachmad’s and Jeff Mills’s works remain his greatest inspiration up to the last few years.
The last years have seen a new wave of minimal techno and Dimi has kept developing his sound. Inspired by old as well as new artists who make Detroit House and Old Skool minimal Techno. Major influences now come from people like Daniel Bell, Todd Sines, Joel Mull, Basic Channel and a lot of other new unknown techno producers. With his DJ gigs and “new style” techno productions, Dimi has found a way to move forward, keeping up to date with changes in today’s techno scene, without forgetting about the past.
Towards the end of 2003 Dimi joined a talented Dutch artist Jeroen Search. Together they produced many ep,s on labels such as: Ion, Audiosculpture, Figure, Outland Records, Smallville. These productions are to be described as deep, minimal, groovy techno. Towards the end of 2005 “Counterpart” is born.
The alias under which Dimi and Jeroen continue to produce EP’s for 6277/Axis, Kombination Reasearch, Warm Up and Audiosculpture.
Currently Dimi Angélis & Jeroen Search have put together a dynamic/energetic live act with a Roland 909 and plenty of hardware. They will be on tour through out the world under the Counterpart alias.
The kickoff of Counterpart took place at the Rex Club (Paris) in January 2007, and their debut on Dutch soil was scheduled at Holland’s leading techno event "Awakenings" in the Westergasfabriek in September 2007. Both of which turned out to be a great success. This summer Counterpart has rocked the Dutch festival season starting with Free Your Mind, Welcome To The Future Festival, 5 Days Off and Amsterdam Dance Event at the Melkweg Amsterdam.
