Yiannis Papaioannou, apart from a musician, was also in the 90’s the founder of the then independent electronic music record company, Elfish, while his previous participations in groups such as Rehearsed Dreams, Spider’s Web and Raw, established him as on of the most active people in the Greek independent music scene. ION’s music was always characterized from its underground repetitive minimalism. Influenced by the techno scene, and especially from record companies such as Basic Channel, ION was probably one of the first Greek artists to appear at live performances with his portable computer alone. 2005 signals his return to the local techno scene with the release of a new album "No Camera" and a series of live sets along with his darling laptop. In 2008 You & Me was released through Klik Records receiving raving reviews worldwide for it's deep Tech dubby sounds and rhythms.
