Plughead is Greece-born, DJ and radio producer Stefanos Monastiridis.
Proud member of Paranoise Radio family since 2011.
I started Djing 15 years ago in a small bar, on an island of the Aegean sea. Since then I have performed almost everywhere; low-key venues, concert halls, self-organised raves, village squares, ancient monuments, beaches, student dorms, house parties, street parties, squats, parks and theatres in Greece, Denmark and Belgium.
While facing music with a very open-mind, ready to incorporate anything in my typically long sets, some interesting contrasts started to emerge.
From one side I kept opting for futuristic dance, deep and electronic music, while from another for the warm grooves coming from the African continent and the diaspora. Light & darkness, body & soul. Rhythm, bass, noise, chaos.
Every time I am selecting records it feels like I try to put words in the right order to tell a story. Some of these stories are documented in this profile.
