With a career of more than 15 years in the music industry, Vangelis Kostoxenakis or better known as Angel Stoxx, is undoubtedly one of the most successful and respected Greek house/tech house producers.
With a catalogue counting more than 200 releases in top labels such as Toolroom, Deeperfect, Hotfingers, Definitive & more, prove not only he is a talented producer but also one of the major players exported by a small country such as Greece.
Some of his career highlights are his past TV show broadcasted on MAD TV for 6 whole years (2004-2010) with an enormous success and a major impact in Greece’s electronic music culture as he mainly targeted in the emergence of established and upcoming Greek DJs, producers and labels, as to inspire the younger generation in getting involved with electronic music.
He is also the first and only so far Greek producer who managed to reach in 2011 Beatport’s #5 in top 100 general chart and #1 in tech house genre with the hit “I dropped my E on the dancefoor”, a track released by Hotfingers and got hammered by huge players such as Umek and Mark Knight!
Since then he constantly continues writing music on the most influential record labels of the industry, highlighting his latest exclusive contract signing under his birth name Vangelis Kostoxenakis with Berlins’ finest record label Kling Klong (owned by Martin Eyerer & Rainer Weichhold) but also in other respected labels with different monikers as his new deep house alias Breaking Toys.
In August 2013 he released with Italian d:vision records a commercial deep house track titled “Let Go”. The success was immense as radio stations, DJs and crowd showed their love while the track skyrocketed in #3 of Greece’s International Top Airplay Chart, #2 iTunes Greece and #4 of most shazamed tracks, while the video clip hit more than 1.200.000 clicks on Youtube! And still counts…
Having conquered several top places on national radio charts it was only a matter of time for the track to make a success across borders, highlighting BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howards statements on one of his shows shouting out “Angel Stoxx, Let Go is dope”. The track also saw hard rotation on Eastern Europe’s radio stations and got licensed on Spain’s major label, Blanco Y Negro. Currently remixes by Betoko and Grum are been released and expected with much enthusiasm!
At the moment, Angel released in the Greek market “Let Go” follow-up titled “Burn It Up” and early feedback shows that this one too will have a similar success. Also he is constantly in the studio preparing new music while taking small breaks for gigs with a goal to inspire but mostly get inspired as pending releases on Keno Records, Swift, d:vision, Zenbi & more are yet to come!
