MANOUSOS (DUSTY DREAMS FOUNDER)
"Manousos" made his first steps in to the world of music in a very young age, studying accordion, keyboard, and tenor saxophone. The passion for music in his early age, turned him into a fanatic collector of many different styles of music. At the age of 17 he started Dj'ing in Crete, Greece, which has now escalated over europe and beyond. In 1999 Manousos decided to take his project a step further and to develop a new sharing experience with his audience. He founded Red Alert Productions, becoming a mobile party organizer, dj'ing and promoting underground house music around Crete. After two years of successful parties under the name of Red Alert he founded Dusty Dreams, an ambitious project which started as a few ad-hoc events that has now turned into a record label. His strong dj presence in the deep soulful afro house has now also evolved into production. After dj'ing for so long he has learned the ins and outs of this music genre and decided that it was time for him to put down his own mark. From 2009 his production has got stronger and stronger with a great number of official and unofficial releases.

D. KATSIKINIS (Music Sanctuary,Offering Rec,Zante)
Dimitris Katsikinis is a Zante based musichead, dj, radio producer and party promoter. The cultural tradition of this beautiful island of the Ionian Sea, had a full effect on him from his childhood. Very soon he started his journey for the meaning of life through literature, poetry, cinema and most of all through Music.
His main influences were Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, Eumir Deodato, Azymuth, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Fania Allstars, Boozoo Bajou, introducing his friends and later his audience to their soundscape. He had the chance to live the explosion of dance music during the 90’s and focus into what was called House Music as record collector in the beginning and soon as a dj and radio producer.
This gave him the opportunity to be the resident dj in most of the local clubs and bars like the legendary Barrage Club, Ammos, Base, San Marco, Casa Playa, Red Room, Azuro, Tropicana among others. He established the Music Sanctuary Beats Party, where he was the music director and also the resident dj with the talented dj Koro.
His eclectic and cutting edge spirit, deep, spiritual and afro gained the attention not only from the island’s audience but also from well known international artists and projects, like Osunlade and Boddhi Satva, the Yoruba Records and the Offering Recordings massive
