Biography

A peculiar retro-futuristic project in sound and image which references music of the past while retaining an identity of its own. FH re-contextualise traditional Greek folk sounds through excursions into the unknown akin to the german krautrock groups of the seventies.

Resident Advisor wrote (in review of Synch Festival 2008):

“Best discovery of the weekend was Fantastikoi Hxoi (pronounced Fantastiki Ichi) or “Imaginary Sounds.” As the last act at K44, the renegade producer lit it up with reformations of Greek pop music from the ’60s and ’70s, which come out on his end like blissed, psychedelic krautrock.”


20 Jazz Funk Greats wrote:

“Perfectly blending the darkly deviant metronomic throb of Turzi and the dizzying crash-bang-wallop- sonics of Caribou, Athens based Fantastikoi Hxoi have crafted in Eidiko Varos a motorik epic akin to some of Giorgio Moroder’s soundtrack, but infused with more of a state of emergency type urgency, a song that would be perfect if used in some kind of high concept futuristic thriller to score a frenetic chase scene through a rain soaked dystopian cityscape built up with skyscrapers that ominously disappear into the clouds as if to conceal the secrets of the bad men above from the minions below.”
