Artist Details :
Haris Zigeridis aka ZIGER is one of the main representatives of high quality electronic dance music in Greece. Born in 1981 in Thessaloniki & later raised in Athens, he has discovered his passion for Electronic music as a teenager soon deciding to experience himself into Music Production.
The new millenium has brought the first results in his home-studio, while a couple of years later he signed his first release. The story could be already figured out, when in 2003 he started his studies in Music Technology & Computer Programming with the result to invest in his home studio & focus into producing fresh beats & pieces, influenced by the modern progressive genres in House, Techno & Trance back then.
His first big moment came in the late '00s, after remixing Yves Larock gaining big attention by important people of the industry, stepping into the '10s energized and more promising than any other time in his musical life. The last few years, Ziger's music on labels like Sudbeat, Plattenbank, Movement Recordings, ao.. can be highly recommended by top Artists of the global Dance Music Industry including the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Above & Beyond, Paul Oakenfold, Jerome Isma-Ae, Guy J, Guy Mantzur, Petar Dundov, Henry Saiz, Edu Imbernon & more.
His experience as a DJ/live act hails from back in the '00s in the good-ol’ scene of Athens. Studiowise, he's collaborated with some great artists like Van Bellen, David Granha, Luke Porter, Weekend Heroes, Andrea Bertolini, etc.. His studio-upgrade & newer philosophy into the electronic music world together with his experience have lead him on paths of major events & festivals in Greece with a bunch of upcoming shows around Europe & further, while being focused creating new bombs in his studio. So Ziger is already considered as a figure that won't fade in the electronic scene in the near future. Keep an eye on him!
