Tasos Frantzolas grew up in Athens and began producing music at the age of 13. After attending SAE London for Audio Engineering, he enjoyed a brief stint in the UK’s music and post-production industries. In 2006, he returned to Greece to found, a sound effects and loop library that has since grown to encompass over one million users and become the most popular sound effects destination worldwide.
