Costas Mitsopoulos (Checkor) could be described easily, with a simple phrase: "A person who loves sounds"
After years of experimentation trying to make his own music, practising endless hours in front of a computer, messing with a "field" that always fascinated him.Checkor in 2010 makes his debut release on "System Recordings" with a track named "Hiding My Sun" which got some XXL support from Dj Sasha.
After that, he remixed artists such as: Ryan Luciano (Feel It / Light Records), Verche (Grim Dawn / Aenaria Recordings), Darren Flecta (Magna / Fluxus Music), Demian Jack (Holograma / Stripped Digital), dpen (The Path / Indigo Records) and the most challenging one was remixing the vocal house legend "Robert Owens" in Danny Clark & Jay Benham feat. Robert Owens (I Knew You / Hatchwork) transforming a soulfoul house track into a dark techno bomb.
As for his original work...His first E.P "Tears Have Turned To Snow" is being released in March 2011 on "System Recordings" and couldn't be just luck that all three tracks were instantly in System Recordings Top 10 sellers and "Hiding My Sun" climbing up to No1. His second EP named "Obvious Contradictions" comes 2 years later (January 2013) on "Hatchwork" a new label that Checkor works with closely.This EP also took notice from the big guns of the dance scene showing that Checkor's direction is only in one way...Up!
Checkor: "Music is like a constant dream while I'm awake...I'll cancel sleep if that's what it takes to keep dreaming"
Checkor's music is supported by: Sasha, Exrtawelt, Hernan Cattaneo, Laurent Garnnier, Slam, M.A.N.D.Y, Claude Von Stroke, Nick Warren, Markus Schulz and many more.
