Tell us a bit about yourself:
AlmaD originates from the Spanish words Alma Divino which means Divine Soul. Born and raised in Greece, AlmaD had a genuine interest in music and spirituality from an early age. AlmaD started playing classical piano at the age of 4. A child of divorced working parents, he spent a lot of time with his grandparents and his friends parents all whom introduced him to different perspectives of life. By the age of 7 AlmaD already had a large collection of records and started recording mixtapes and giving them away to his friends. At the same time he was also playing at his friends birthday parties. At the age of 14 AlmaD discovered meditation and it has been an essential part of his life. After finishing high school he studied Graphic Design and Marketing but his passion for music led him to study Audio Engineering and Production. This enabled him to produce his own music.
By the age of 25 AlmaD had already worked with several Greek artists as a producer and songwriter before leaving Greece in 2012. Relocating to Sweden to follow his dream as a Pop producer he discovered a new passion in his life. He started organising party nights and Djing which became an instant success. Following recommendations of his friends, he went to Ibiza in 2014 for the first time which changed his life for ever. He was introduced to the Underground culture where he saw all the worlds best Djs live. He soon became a resident DJ on the island for the next 6 summer seasons and traveled the world during the winters. It was in 2018 when AlmaD decided to start his own record label, PlayHouse Time Records, where he started releasing his own music influenced by House, Underground, Pop, Ethnic and Sacred sounds. His first EP “Airplane” reached Kiss Fm Australia Top 10 Dance chart for 2 weeks. His subsequent releases have had the support of A’ list DJs and radios from all around the world.
In 2020 he relocated to Finland and he decided to start a new project called “Divine”. A research/study on sound and frequencies, designed to radiate Divine Positive Vibes and transform all the people who come in contact with it. Full of Divine Positive Energy, AlmaD is ready to share it with the world.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it.“
