Biography

One of the most important characters of the techouse era, Phivos (Phil) Sebastiane aka Pure Science is not to be underestimated. He has an impressive background and his attachment to music began since he was a child, when he definitely fell in love with the synthesizers. Inspired by the legacy of the talented Depeche Mode, he was named The Scientist in the end of the eighties, nickname created by the Passion Crew due to his great potential and level of concentration.

Son of a greek singer and of a tool maker, Phivos grew up in Basildon Essex, where took place an important automobile industry, and later emerged his heroes of Depeche Mode. His musical background started very early, when he first listened to the Doctor Who Theme music on BBC TV, made by Delia Derbyshire and John Balker. At nine years old only, he bought his first records, and in 1984, at eleven, he got his first synthesizer, a Yamaha CS01 mk2, a monophonic analog. At that time, he took six months of organ lessons for the basics.

His first close contact with the realm of electronic music happened when he listened to the Synth Pop classics of The Human League, and, of course, D.M. At twelve, his older sister Nina, who used to know the stage manager and crew of Hammersmith Odean which was a big concert place that decade, took him to some amazing concerts, such as the early tours of Siouxies and the Banshees, The Human League and even Depeche Mode.
