Vangelis Viras (a.k.a. Dj Vee Rush) considered by many, one of the most experienced and talented Dj's - remixers - producers in Greece. His multi-tasking mentality and his grea focusing in music gave him a lot fans and followers.

Early life
(A Studious Young Boy)


He was born and raised in Athens, Greece. As a teenager, he was obliged to move to the provincial Greece and specifically in the city of Karditsa. From a very young age, he chose to follow in the footsteps of his father and to deal with the music. Initially, as a radio producer, then as an amateur Dj. Until the age of 17 he had managed enough things in the field as well, his own radio productions were so successful and had such high ratings, which changed him into a professional radio producer. Simultaneously, he did some courses in music, starting to learn what are the guitar and the piano. Of course, this was of little assistance from his father, a former musician. He was lucky because his dad had great love for music and had bought very expensive audio equipment. The young Vangelis took the opportunity and began to experiment with such equipment. It was then that he started making the raw mix tapes and gives them to his friends for free.
His own basic studies are all computer science relative. When he finished high school, while he was working as a technician in a local television station, decided to focus more on the multimedia and music. He chose to go to study at private schools in that object. So he decided to change city for a while.
After completing his studies and his military service (he served as an officer in the Greek Special Forces and retired with the honorary rank of second lieutenant), he returned in Karditsa, where he settled and worked until 2009.
In 2009, an extremely tempting business proposition forced him to move to London and there he had the opportunity to meet many people, related to the music and multimedia.
From 2012 onwards, he returned permanently in Karditsa, where he lives and works until today.

Dj Carrier
(Blow the House Down)

He multi liked the idea to offer music to people. Then, he decided to try playing music in haunts of his own friends. He was just 18 years old. And it was the beginning of a golden decade of music. The decade of the 90’s.
The next few years, he dealt with more professional mixing. He has played music in several clubs of the town who lived, until 1991. Then, he tried his luck in other near towns.
Larissa,Trikala, Kozani, Florina, Kastoria, Ptolemaida, was some of the places that he has played, until he reached the city of Thessaloniki, in 1993. It was a very successful year, gave him a big boost and mass audiences. Chalkidiki, Lesvos, Skiathos, Andros, Crete, Kos, was some of Vee's summer destinations as resident or guest DJ, too. He also passes from many other Greek towns as a event's guest dj such as Korinthos, Sparta, Chalkida, Volos, Katerini, Serres, Edessa, Ioannina, Lamia and many more, and of course the capital city of Athens.
Vee Rush's musical style reflects his eclectic influences; from high-modernist integral surrealism to pop-funk fusion to rock epic poetry to 80's hair metal; all distilled down to pure, crystalline deep tech house. He’s not limited to house, instead combining disco, minimal, indie, glitch, and progressive house to create some new sounds.
Until 2005, he had already played in bigger places of his town (NEMESIS, FACE, AKRI, ASTERIA, BLUES, N-DIAMESO, D-TOX, ENZZO and more) and some of the trendiest club of Greece (WAIKIKI, ORIGINAL, SAX ON THE BACK, COHIBA, KGB, MILLENNIUM, COCOMERO, SCALA, HEAVEN, AQUARIUS, ESCAPE, BABYLON, MAYA, PLASTIC, PASA, NOMAD, ALTO, INK, MASCOT BAR and many more) as a resident or as a guest Dj. The result was, he has acquired, together with the extensive experience and tremendous recognition and respect as professional Dj. And combined with his mature character, he was become very beloved and gained many friends throughout the country.

Productions and Remixes
(Never Enough Studio Time)


The years that followed were full of energy. Vangelis was not playing music longer as resident Dj. He preferred to play only on some parties and events. This gave him more time to get into the studio and deal with the creation of music. This started experimental and tried to make some remixes. He worked on big hits of his favorite musicians; Depeche Mode, Moby, Faithless and some Dj works, like Sasha and Fatboy Slim to Deep Dish and some youngest guys. And the first successful remixes and productions not took too long to come.
“It’s no good” from Depeche Mode was one of the first Vangelis’ remixes. That was one of the first remixes, which shake the calm waters so much that several record companies to propose him for a cooperation. So did “U-TEAM”, a label based in Athens. Vangelis accepted. The first production that he did gradually began to be heard by radio throughout Greece it was the “Rising”. A track inspired by the greatest rave anthems of the 90’s. Several remixes and releases followed. “Deep Sheet”, “Under Control”, “Dark Square”, “Feather Virtuoso”, “Dark Square”, “Satellite”, “Samba Greco” and "4 ELEMENTS EP" are some of the tracks with great success and many radio airtime plays.
