Nectarios Meidanis was born in 1978 in Athens, Greece.
He is a pisces so naturally he got involved with arts.
His first encounter with music was when he was tall enough to reach the record player in his living room and play his mother's records which included John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, Carlos Santana, Joao and Astrud Gilberto, Stan Getz and his first encounter with electronic music was when he he was listening to his older sister's records, a big impact on his musical personality was Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and the brilliant soundtrack Jan Hammer did for the "Miami Vice" series.
He grew older and started playing bass and drums in bands.
Went to his first psychedelic trance parties in the forests located in the outskirts of Athens in 1994. Fast forward a decade later and he graduated with honors from his Bachelors in Science degree, in 2003 from Anglia Ruskin university in Cambridge.
Certified in Advanced MIDI implementation, Analog Electronics, Digital Electronics, Advanced Acoustics, Hardware/Software Integration, Advanced Sound Design and Digital Signal Processing. His final BsC project on "integrating hardware & software in a project and professional studio" received a first class mark.
He has also taught 3rd year Audio Tech students on Digital Audio Workstation in the same university from which he graduated and run his university's studios for a year.
He has worked as a live sound engineer for 3 years in Cambridge, on Front of House and Monitor duties, so there is hands on experience on top of the theory.
Has been releasing records since 2002 and has reached the Beats 'n' Breaks #1 spot on DJMag and Mixmag in 2004.
Then came the techno music, where he has released music with Dieb Audio and Dave Seaman's Audio Therapy label.
He went full circle when he started making psychedelic trance in the Disco Hooligans project.
Two album's and a remix to Sheyba's Classic, Trance Africa Express on Canadian Ektoplazm, which have a combined of 50000+ downloads, 3 EPs on acclaimed Neurobiotic Records, and a bunch of remixes on Etnica, Deedrah, Pleiadians and Arkanoydz are some of the things that kept him busy whilst he was running the project.
He is still making music under the Martian Arts project, where things started off swiftly to some acclaimed remixes for his first Disco Hooligans and now included ManMadeMan on the long list of remixes.
Things don't stop there though...the techno is bacl, remixing Frank'e and Illinton's "Night Owls" which is signed on new founded, Tago Mago label, Gee Van D's Saw Masscare and RymdFunk's Funkomedina, the future looks promising.
He has played the big clubs in London, Fabric, Ministry Of Sound, The Fortress, The End, his music has been featured on Annie Nightngale's BBC Radio 1 shows, Kiss FM, Capital, to name but a few and he has released tunes in Distinct'ive Breaks Records' Y4K compilations sharing the track list amongst people like The Chemical Brothers, Future Sound Of London, Orbital, Gus Gus and Way Out West and has also been included in The Fabric Live compilations.
