Thaneco (Thanos Oikonomopoulos or Ekonomopoulos) was born in Patras, Greece, in November 1975. Composer of electronic music with several different influences from the electronica of the 70s and 80s (berlin school, krautrock, downtempo).
His work can be described as vintage-psychedelic electronica with influences from Rudiger Lorenz, Cluster, Vangelis, John Carpenter and other.
He uses a large variety of vintage and modern synths such as: Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, Moog Minimoog Model D, Yamaha DX7 mkII, Korg Polysix, Oberheim Matrix 1000, Korg Z1, Kurzweil k2vx, Roland SH-101, Dave Smith Mopho and Evolver, Mutable Instruments Shruthi-1.

This is one of his best albums and is offered only for a limited time, for the readers of this blog.
This album is inspired by ancient Greek mythology and by the ancient Greek god Panas. Here is a fine example of ancient Greek culture meeting vintage electronica. Complicated rhythms, folk melodies, experimental sounds, and heavily treated drum machines create a unique album.
