Michael “Sahpé” Sachpekidis was born in Greece but has lived in the UK since 1999. He was taught piano, guitar, and drums from a very young age, and music has been a part of his life since... He’s hosted his own radio show at Hull Uni’s Jam1575, DJed all around the UK – Hull (Fez Club), Manchester (Ampersand, Emporia), Newbury (Avenue), Reading (Mango, Venue), and also in Thessaloniki, Greece, his home town – Isalos (Summer 2003 residency), Q Club Mylos, Skybar, Spiti Two (with Novatek). He consistently delivers club-wise DJ sets with cross-genre floor-fillers and crowd-pleasers, ranging from summery tribal house at the beach bars, to tech-house and minimal techno in the UK and in Greece's underground scene, to electro and techno when the crowd can take it!
Michael has also been experimenting with music making from an early age (the age of DOS!) and has recently started releasing under aliases “Sahpe” (tech house, nu disco), “Forgetting Factor” (chillout), and “mikaelantony” (electro), on labels like “In Fact”, “Arabica”, “Avatara”, “Angry Monkey”, and soon on “Dobara”! For Michael, music comes through innumerable influences of different genres, his classical training, and of course the bug that Novatek passed to him!! ...to whom he is grateful...
