Stavroz was formed in 2011 by IJsbrand and Gert, both DJs and sound engineers, who were joined soon after by musicians Maxim and Pieter. Their first vinyl on Délicieuse Records rose to a number one position on the Hype Machine and was chosen as vinyl of the month by Germany’s Faze Magazine. Known for injecting an overall ethnic, acoustic, and organic vibe to electronic music, these four friends pocketed releases for Kindisch, Bedrock, and their own label Moodfamily in Ghent.
