A producer with obsessive compulsive disorder can only mean one thing, it takes love and time for Konstantinos Karatamoglou aka Kostakis to perfect a record. However, let it be known that when it comes along it is something at the very least if not your taste, sonically dexterous.
Producers are not destined to work alone, and while focusing on their solo careers, Kostakis and Ryan Murgatroyd, production partner and best friends join forces under a few very successful guises namely Crazy White Boy. A Debut 2014 release on Get Physical with Ryan Murgatoyd – Shamandrums gave Kostakis a quick stint in the Beatport charts and support from the likes of Solomun and Adriatique. 2015 saw their follow up single, ‘Bargain Bin’, enter the charts and stand firm in the top 100 Deep House for weeks. Keeping the momentum through 2016 an epic remix for TMA and third single with Murgatroyd “Down Dog” solidified Kostakis’ string of epic chart toppers with another huge underground club record.
Kostakis then started a new project, “Strange Loving” a three piece Tech House act comprising of himself, Ronald Rowley and Dakin Auret that quickly launched onto the scene and delivered some epic records with their debut remix on German powerhouse Katermukke getting a 5/5 from Pete Tong himself.
Still taking the reigns as head producer of Strange Loving, working on the Crazy White Boy project and DJing nonstop under both well-developed brands, Kostakis has begun releasing his Solo material kept on the back burner. 2018 sees Kostakis releasing his first EP on Katermukke in early August and a remix for Poesie Musik later in the same month.
