The thirteenth edition of the microcastle podcast welcomes Petros Manganaris aka Echonomist. Drawing early inspiration from Maurizio, Carl Craig, Black Dog and Echocord, the Greek artist found a unique sonic space, eventually leading to releases on Aeon, Connaisseur Recordings, Moodmusic, Rotary Cocktail and Upon You. Now driven by his boundless creativity, Petros continues to evolve, tweaking his edgy and raw yet musical, timeless sound.
A friend of the label for some time, Echonomist now crafts the thirteenth edition of the podcast with an exclusive studio mix. In a journey spread across sixty magical minutes, Petros showcases his impeccable taste and superb programming skills, intertwining deep, techno and afro sensibilities. It’s an uncanny scope and one which gets wrapped up in an unforgettable cosmic storyboard. Enjoy.

Q: Your mix is full of storytellers. Do you still remember the first records you bought once?
A: Unfortunately I don´t remember the name of my first record but it was from the record story called Bongofishrecordstore in my hometown Halle and I bought 2 Acid Techno vinyls.
Q: You´re in the business about 20 years yet. What do you think did change most during this time?
A: Hair and clothes changed the most. Only Techno stayed the same. Nowadays everything feels so much faster but that isn´t bad at all. I´m not the „everything was better before“ guy. I´m happy to see things developing and I´m always curious what´s happening next.
Q: We´ve heard there is a new album coming next year. Are there any more details to talk about yet?
A: I really can´t wait to have this one out. The name of the album will be „Muscle Of Synths“ and will contain 10 tracks. It´s a dancefloor album. I just received the mastered files, so I´m really looking forward to March/April 2018.
His treasure chests filled with black gold and glistening silver, capturing a vast collection of acoustic tales… Being a buccaneer, Pophop is right in his element when cruising through the sound waves of that endless ocean named music, always in search of new melodies. The haul he brings to his home port -the artist collective 3000Grad from Germany- afterwards, is an eclectic mixture of East European folklore, dubby grooves, tropical happiness, and multicoloured electronic sound pearls. Using these precious treasures, the bearded vagabond lures the dance floor out of the grey mist of everyday life, takes his listeners on an exciting adventure trip full of daring love for life.
