[In Collaboration with MUZO]
Stavroz was formed in 2011 by Ijsbrand & Gert, both of whom are DJs, musicians and sound engineers looking for a way to channel their musical inspirations. Soon after, Maxim and Pieter joined them on live shows and in the studio. Their first EP ‘The Ginning’ released in 2015 was well-received by music lovers and critics alike. It landed the highest position on Hype Machine, and it was also chosen as ‘Vinyl of the Month’ by German magazine Faze.
After being named of the best breakthrough artists in Belgium, Stavroz continued to inject their ethnic, acoustic and organic vibe to electronic music, landing releases with labels such as Kindisch, Laut & Luise, Delicieuse, Bedrock, and eventually started their own label ’Moodfamily. Their intimate live set and unique DJ sets were well-loved by many, and took them to dance floors across the world. Despite a hectic tour schedule, they still have a weekly radio show on Studio Brussel where they continue to share their music, and display an uncanny ability to combine the old and new, fusing the sounds of the East and West.
Striving to create a wholesome, comforting soundtrack for a place that no words can describe, Stavroz urges you to take a rest, lay down, close your eyes and listen to their story told in an orchestral fashion.
