Ivo Foreal. Ivo, born in Kassel (Germany) in 1975, moved to The Netherlands with his parents when he was just a little boy. Even back then Ivo was interested in all kinds of music. His father, who was involved in organising jazz concerts, had a big influence on him.
Ivo started DJ-ing at home and sometimes at small parties. In 1997 he got to play in a few small bars in Eindhoven (Holland), where he got the chance to play in front of a small crowd.
Soon other clubs and promotors noticed his skills behind the decks and the ability to "embrace" a crowd and Ivo became resident at a new club in Eindhoven: De Rechter. Club Risk, a promoter from Amsterdam, asked Ivo to be the resident DJ for their new nights in De Rechter.
In 2002 he made a mix cd for Puschkin Residency, a promotional CD release sponsored by Puschkin Vodka.
Over the folowing years he played with names like: Tania Vulcano (Circo Loco), Reche (Space Ibiza), Pako & Frederik (Global Underground), Sander Kleinenberg, Billy Nasty and many more to name.
A few of the venues he played at are: Cafe d'Anvers (Antwerp, Belgium), Supperclub (Amsterdam), La Rocca (Lier, Belgium), De Rechter (Eindhoven), Blue Marlin (Ibiza), Poema (Utrecht), Humanite (Extrema, Eindhoven), De Danssalon (Eindhoven), Home (Budapest, Hungary).
DJ's that inspired him over the years are: Tania Vulcano, Locodice, Ricardo Villalobos, Pan Pot, Umek, Danny Tenaglia, Joel Mull and Chymera.
In 2010 Ivo and a friend started a new a label: Lowendcommunity
Before the label got started they already got huge support on some of their upcoming releases from names like Laurent Garnier, Michel de Hey, Jeff Mills, Hermanez and many more. As tech-duo N.U.D.E. (with his label partner) he will rock festivals and venues all over summer.
At the moment they are setting up a new label and bookings-agency, called Nightworx.
His Medias EP is his second solo release on Lowendcom, which features remixes from Stefan Vincent, Those In Boxes and Mesquitas.
