Spiros Stamoulis a.k.a. Pressure (or SpiralS as his Trance alias) is a new blood producer, that will definetely draw your attention as he has pure hardcore inside him!
He grew up listening to cassettes of Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Kraftwerk and 80s dance in general, while in the early 90s, caught up with acid and hit-house and that was the time when he entered the world of Rave, Trance and Drum & Bass.
As a producer, Pressure made his first tracks using Fast Tracker II and since then he's still faithful to trackers and hardware synths. His production variety consists of different genres like Breakbeat, Hardcore, Drum n Bass, Gabber, Trance and Techno sounds, influenced always by the Oldskool spirit.
Most of his tracks were made around early 00s and some of them were even played out in clubs, parties and radio shows.
One of his tracks titled 'SADRAGGA' was made in 2006 and the idea of it was a tune with ragga loop using the Public Enemy’s (and later Techno two’s) break ft. a reverse hardcore synth melody. This 9 yr old track will be featured on a forthcoming release, which will be out from the Strictly Nuskool Blog featuring Greek producers dealing with Hardcore only.
Worth also to mention that this is his first confirmed signed track ever, even tho he's been producing for many years!

Pressure's main influences are acts like Jean Micheal Jarre, Acen, Altern8, NRG, Invisible Man, Paradox, Art of Trance, Westbam and Ruffneck, just few to mention.
Apart from producing he was also involved with radio production as in 1997, he co-hosted the ''Break Alert show'' with his friend TheMaxx, which was broadcasted on different radio stations in Greece like Sky Radio FM, Blue Sky FM, Free FM, Tektonic web radio and finally as a Break Alert web radio.
As a DJ, he experienced his first gig in 1998 after joining the Suburbia Crew. He played in Greek clubs (based in Athens) like Mad Club, Berlin, Graffiti, 7Heaven and in Capital (Lefkada). Over the last years, Spiros is a member dj of ‘90Vibes crew' spinning 90s dance music in various bars and clubs of Athens, alongside two of his old Suburbia partners and friends, Limited and Keith.
