Greek musician Panagiotis Melidis took the name Larry Gus in 2006, entering solo digital music production following the dissolution of his even more organic punk duo Ginger. He called the project following the Greek term “Larigas,” which translates approximately into throat or larynx, but offered as a fascinating enough exemplory case of wordplay to do something like a banner for his fresh sounds. Much less powered by punk, Larry Gus’ first sample-based recordings had been used in Television commercials, eventually providing way to concert events that included improvised looping and on-the-spot building of kaleidoscopic beats. His first genuine solo launch, Stitches, appeared in ’09 2009 around the Greek label Cast-A-Blast. Carrying out a slew of compilation looks, remixes, and online songs, Melidis authorized with DFA and released Silent Congas digitally in 2012, chasing it up with Years Not really Surviving in 2013. He released his third LP, the still complicated but much less sample-based I WANT New Eye, in 2015.
