Panagiotis (born and grew up in Veria, Imathia) started to write music as Larry Gus (larigas: greek for throat, larynx), inspired by the rural environment of his hometown.His early influences have been Creedence Clearwater Revival and Minor Threat. He had been member of the seminal bass and drums duo Ginger, fusing hardcore punk aesthetics and hip hop beats. When Ginger broke up, he started composing music for TV commercials, which were in fact his first works as Larry Gus. Later on, he got his name due to some chaotic live perfomances, incorporating live looping techniques in an improvised pop manner.
His first album proper, Stitches, was released on greek hip-hop label Cast-A-Blast in late 2009. Ever since, his sound evolved to a densely layered combination of psych-pop, african chants, harsh brass freakouts and percussion-heavy beats.
His second album 24Beats was released by Waaga Records.Larry Gus describes the album as a document of his failure trying "deliberately and intentionally" (as he states here:http://larrygus.blogspot.gr) to copy Madlib.
