Vangelis Kostoxenakis aka Angel Stoxx is one of the two musical brains of the known production duo Phatjak. Apart the Phatjak projects, Vangelis is focusing this period on solo releases and collaborations in top labels, putting out his own personal trademark. With a dedication of more than 15 years in music, success knocked his door in 2000 after a big record hit (”Circus”) he did with his partner Evan Kay under the alias ”Mod Squad”. Phatjak project was born 2 years after. During that period of time Vangelis studied sound engineering and music technology which prooved to be wise and helpfull tools for the years to come.

Vangelis Kostoxenakis aka Angel Stoxx, Phatjak was born in sunny Greece in late 70s. He discovered his passion for music in the early years of high school. This passion drove him later on studying sound engineering and music production in Mixing Is Art Laboratories in Athens, in order to discover and unveil the secrets of music production.

With a dedication of more than 15 years in music, the first signs of success were given in 1999 with his debut record (”Circus”) that he produced along with his friend and partner in crime Evan Kay. The boys released under the alias of ”Mod Squad” on Liverpool’s legendary label Glow Records and managed to sell 5000 vinyl copies, not a lot for the time but a good number for a debut release. The record found immediate support by the players of the time, highlighting Roger Sanchez who honored the track on one of his DJ mixes for DJ mag.

Phatjak project was born 2 years after. During that period of time Vangelis studied sound engineering and music technology, which proved to be wise and helpful tools for the years to come.

During the shining days of progressive house, Vangelis was into disco and tech/funk house. He found inspiring the sound of the French scene and he is fascinated by it until now. His influences of dicofunk, phat beats and phat basslines where the secret ingredients to hype up the project Phatjak which became widely known in 2005 with the release ”Dirty Sunday”, on Dave Seaman’s Audio Therapy. Phatjak’s unique treatment and approach on disco, electro and progressive elements led to a sound that many djs and producers found appealing and distinctive. Phatjak established in 2006 with the remix on Frank Beckers “Color me blind” on Baroque, which became a classic.

 Currently he is an official artist of super hot label owned by Manuel De La Mare, Alex Kenji & Luigi Rocca “Hotfingers”, on which released in 2011 and enjoyed for six weeks in a row #3 on Beatports top 100, the track “I dropped my E on the dancefloor”. The success story was similar with the second concept release “I found my E in your pocket” . The last two years Angel Stoxx is focusing entirely on his solo career, targeting releasing music on the most influential and popular labels such as: Toolroom which released the single “Im just a drummachine” (one of Mark Knight’s favorite singles for 2011 as mentioned on his podcast), “You are the one” on Acquaviva’s Definitive, “The sound of my voice” on 303Lovers, “Balkan Clouds” on Stefano Noferini’s Deeperfect, “Kings&Queens” on Dirty Harris’s Maquina Music, “Addiction” on Mastiksoul’s 4kenzo (licensed on latest Dirty Dutch Compilation by DJ Chuckie) are some of Angel Stoxx’s big records for 2010-2011.
