Musician, producer Kimon Katafigiotis returns as “Korvez” with his blend of trance, downbeat, melodic techno, and pop song writing.
Kimon spent his college years playing in bands and DJing house parties, frat parties and local NJ alternative music clubs - learning that great beats make people get out on the floor, but observing that only great songs make them stay out on the floor. As a musician, he applied that same understanding to all his recordings and live shows, noting that great music makes people move, but it’s the song that engages them.
Programming backing tracks for the electronic rock band ‘Psonica,’ that he fronted, and his solo work, he learned and grew his technical prowess in electronic music creation. Later, in the building out of his recording facility ‘The Ultrascene’, he applied this knowledge and aesthetic to his production work, and productions for many other artists, tracking and mixing their projects there with his guidance.
A couple years back, when on vacation in Europe, he guest DJ’d at a friend’s beach clubs in Athens and Kefalonia. There his love of EDM was rekindled. He came home to write and produce a large batch of work, and from there chose four tracks and released “Gravity Defied” as the introduction to “Korvez”. Guest vocalists Eve Vox, JR Hilcher and Leidy Gallo help the EP come to life with great performances. Gravity Defied became #1 most added on the NACC Electronic Charts for week of 11/16/18, and charted on many US college and community radio RPM lists.
“Disco Apocalypse” featured 9 brilliant tracks - bangers and great vocal performances including Billboard charting vocalist Sophia Diaz on “Sea of Light”.
The follow up re-released a favorite track “Love of Your Life”, with remixes by Yosef Flumeri, Pavel Pro, Elektro Abhijeet Manu, and Korvez.
In late 2020, "Korvez" signed with influencial dance label Quark Records, and has since released "Get Higher (feat. Sophia Cruz), All Of Your Might (feat. Queen Ilise)." And check out the videos above, for the latest releases "How Good Would That Be (feat. Andrea Angell)," "We Both Know" (featuring NJ.com 2021 artist to watch - HOLDN), currently with over 130k streams on Spotify and 29k YouTube views.
