Panayota is Bodi Michael Sarfati, born in 1978 in the southern part of Israel (Kirlat Gat). In 1996 Bodi was first introduced to the psychedelic scene, and immediately felt a connection with the music. In 2000 Panayota started dj’ing at small indoor and outdoor events all over Israel, and at the time was influenced by a full on melodic & psychedelic sound. In time he also became heavily influenced by the new wave of hi tek psychedelic sounds originating from South Africa.
In 2007 Panayota starting gaining a reputation as a formidable producer, creating a magical environment combined with kick ass psychedelic sounds and earth shattering bass. He started touring very early in 2010 after releasing his debut album “The Trouble Maker” on Metatron Productions, and subsequently also had many other international releases on some of the best labels in the industry. Since then he has been booked to play at some of the biggest festivals around the world, and has worked with some of the most influential and important production crews in Israel, and further afield. These days he is working to create a new psychedelic sound in the industry, and this saw the birth of a new night time project with Anxiety aka Adir Moshe as Chimera, as well as a solo progressive project known as Dust-X.
Since then he has released 2 solo EP’s on Disasterpeace Records, as well a solo EP on Kaos Krew Records and a collabboration EP with Dark Nebula on Digital Psionics. He also compiled a mega VA showcasing the rich night time talent still present in an Israeli industry dominated by the worldwide progressive sound, released on Kaos Krew Records in Aug 2012. After the success of this VA, Bodi has decided to strenghten his ties with his early passion in the psychedelic music, and consequently signed to Kaos Krew Records. Further more he has also released a new studio album in Jun 2014 on Kaos Krew Records, as well as 2 smashing Chimera EP’s on Kaos Krew Records and Biomechanix Records respectively…
With numerous tours over the last few years to Mexico, Portugal & India, and now an upcoming tour to Slovenia for the very first time, this talented artist is more determined than ever to continue his blazing trail through the most intense of psychedelic music to be experienced!!!
