Born on April 14, 1990, George Papadakis made contact with electronic music thanks to local radio stations and his curiosity when started visiting record stores in his hometown,Heraklion.
Soon he discovered the blues, soul, funk and hip hop, genres that he loves and define him till nowdays as he is a big fan of the so called "black music". As from 2008 his passion for house and techno led him to djing under the alias Jo Papa. Up to now he has played in many different spots around Greece with several other artists. It's not easy to frame his style as he tends to move through genres and spectrums in a storytelling kind of way.
He prefers to blend things smoothly into a combination of raw chicago house kicks, deep minimalistic baselines and stripped down techno stabs. His dj-sets consist of both older and fresh records plus digital format music. As he admits he would love to be 100 % analogue but patience is a virtue in the case of record digging.
A few years ago after a long night discussion with a special friend
he decided to start producing music that he likes to play.
Thats how Moshi Moshi, which stands for hello, was created.
This Greek dj-production/duo-project was formed back in 2010 by two friends George Papadakis aka Jo Papa and Tomas Stratakis aka Tomas Es.
Their first release 'Karuzell EP' came out on the Berlin based record label Resopal Schallware . A short while later they did a remix for MRI's successful track 'Shaun' on Resopal's 'Remixed:Remixed' compilation amongst other artists like Robag Wruhme, Matt John, Oliver Koletzki, Ian Pooley.
In 2011 the same remix was also included in 'Shaun Remix Package' and they added two more releases to their credits with the 'lluminati EP' on another Berlin based label Dimmer Records and their track 'My Friends' on the Malaysian label Love International in the 'Around The World EP'.
In 2012 came their debut vinyl release on the American label Roundabout Sounds with the 12inch 'Mellow Drama EP' - including a remix from the one and only Rick (The Godson) Wilhite of 3 Chairs of Detroit - The original track 'Alimono' had been charted on the 22tracks London playlist by Giles Smith & James among many other great artists such as Redshape, Mike Huckaby, Andres, Mr G, Oskar Offermann, Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers, Pittsburgh Track Authority and others.
