Risky business

PAN records boss Bill Kouligas is not exactly risk adverse. Thankfully this is a mindset that has led him to release some of the most compelling, strange, and sonically rewarding music of recent years. Drawn towards electronic artists operating at the bleeding edge of creativity and sound design, PAN is responsible for introducing artists of the calibre of Objekt, Pan Daijing and Rashad Becker, Yves Tumor or Errorsmith to the wider world - many of which have been fixtures at Sónar in the last few years.

As a DJ, Greek born, Berlin based Kouligas, incorporates all of this and more, creating breakneck, and highly danceable sets that weave a throughline from hardcore rave, breaks, techno and twisted, blistered pop. With an exceptional ear, and comprehensive knowledge of modern electronic music, there’s no-one better to do justice to the very best of today’s fractured but exciting electronic scene.
