Bill Giouvris and Steve Karabinos the two members of Acropod , as music and vinyl junkies, they started off as DJs when they were teenagers, with drum'n'bass & trip hop music in clubs and open-air parties in Greece during their prime.They met each other in the year 1994, and they realized that the commonality between them was their love for the music. A big friendship arose and quickly realized that the game was to make their own music so six years later. In 2000 they started a journey in producing music to see if their musical styles could be combine in a more advanced sound. Inspired from ambient, jazz, funk, and ethnic sounds, with a small budget, they started buying machinery and set up their own... bedroom studios, to produce their own sound and trying to learn as much as possible on music technology, while adopting the alias Acropod.. Their style is a mix of sound elements from different kinds of music, so it is not possible to put acropod into a specialized genre. It is well-produced music with the sense of atmospheric, melancholic, groovy, and melodic feeling but with a touch of coolness and cosiness After Acropod have spent a lot of hours working in their studios and developing their sound and production skills now their music can be checked in the album called “Tales Beyond the Unknown” by Klik Records and several other tracks at www.elusivesounds.com. Their album came out in the year 2005. It drives us into the unknown parts of our soul and take us in deep atmospheric soundscapes and melodic pads, and as music people describe it, is an awesome production. By listening to their album you will realize that they can't be placed under a particular music "tag", since, as they themselves claim "music is not a supermarket..." The future looks bright for them us they continue to expand their studio set up, keep on progressing their musical style and creating the music they love. They have promised much better things to come. According to Acropod, by creating music, they aim in people's smiles around them...Acropod invites you all to a futuristic and soulfull ride and would like to give a special thanks to all the people who have helped and supported them till now.
