As a Musician, Stage has been playing the piano since his he was 7, but there was no EDM Genres at that time! Later on, he started working on his own productions (like 'Trip To Paradise' released in Playground CD Compilation '02) after 3 years of living in the UK & attending on various seminars & classes of Sound & Audio Engineering (S.A.E.). In '06, after teaming up in the studio with youngster Tash and moving back to Greece, they released their debut project releases on labels like SOG Records (ch), Presslab Limited (it), Plusquam (de) and Underground Lessons (gr) to name a few, releasing their debut album 'Movement' and launching at the same time their own electronic music record-label entitled Movement Recordings!
He also started collaborating with other producers like Volcon,W&DY,Unison, Stergios and Rogier and released various tracks with them, mostly on the labels Just Movement, Movement Rec., Abstract Space Records and Massive Harmony.
When he moved back to Holland in 2013, he worked closely with Rogier and his brother Alex Panagoulopoulos. That ended up in over a 100 releases at several labels in 2 years in which several productions got a lot of attention at Beatport, Release promo etc. Together with his brother then started the label Just Movement where he is one of the main producers with Stergios and Rogier. On this label he released his first solo album 'Just The Beginning' in 2014 and after moving to England at the end of 2015 he is doing these days the finishing touches on his forthcoming chill out album Musical Freedom as well.
