Hailing from the land of compromise in the heart of Europe, the four friends of Stavroz found each other in the east of Flanders. In its inception, IJsbrand De Wilde & Gert Beazar focussed mainly on playing DJ sets and creating music in which they loved colliding worlds. Only a few years later they hooked up with Maxim Helincks & Pieter De Meester to expand their DJ activities to a performing band and continued to try and find an unbeaten path in electronic music. This culminated in their delicately acoustic, organic and cinematic approach to electronic music. As a result they were awarded second place for “best producer” and “best breakthrough artist” in national awards for Belgium’s electronic scene.
How can electronic music be a soul music? The founder DJs of Pure Lust Daniel Santiago and Daniel Ban from Budapest, know exactly this. The secret of their success is to find a mixture of styles that blend downtempo, a little bit of rock, and more spirited folk motifs, on house and electronic basis. This mixture results in a deep yet dancefloor friendly sounds. The secret component is the appropriate proportion of styles. They always tell something through music and
give a dynamic and fresh experience to the people.
