Florence / Wladimir M.

Stefan Robbers has earned considerable respect, both in the Netherlands and abroad, as one of the most versatile and productive musicians in the field of electronic dance music. His more melodic techno music was released under the aliases Terrace (Djax, Eevo Lute) and Florence.

Since 1992 he has operated Eevo Lute Muzique, a record company specializing in abstract and modern electronic music in its broadest form. The label has brought forth over 40 releases during recent years. After a refreshing pause in the period 1998 to 2001 the label resumed its activities last year, with renewed energy and lots of good music on the way! EevoNext is a fully digital web label emerging from the fundaments of Eevo Lute Muzique, one of the most influential techno labels from the Netherlands. Started in November 2006, it brings a bi-monthly release of a featured artist as a high quality download with emphasis on quality and playability. Available from the EEVONEXT.COM web store and established online stores like iTunes, Beatport and others.

Stefan’s integrity and artistic qualities earned him a solid reputation in the techno community. Names like Armando (Chicago), Ron Trent (Chicago) Sven Vath (Frankfurt) and Speedy J (Rotterdam) asked him for remixes of their songs. Detroit’s own boy wonder Carl Craig entrusted Eevo Lute with his most delicate techno tracks.

Wladimir M. founded Eevo Lute Muzique together with his friend Stefan Robbers. He was sometimes described as the conscience of the label and its artists, something he expressed in poems, lyrics and art. Together with music producer Stefan Robbers he created this and many other electronic compositions, where the influence of great minds is taken into a new, unexplainable direction.

Nowadays Wladimir is an active visual artist and creates urban street art on locations you wouldn't expect. In 2001 he stayed on the streets of his beloved hometown Eindhoven for the better part of the summer and shot a 30 minute documentary with lots of highways, train tracks and industrial concrete, accompanied by a driving techno sound. Wladimir is now fantasizing about a sequel tho this project: Eindhoven 2010. But before that he might make some new Tricky style music; crazy beats and strange noises with soft-spoken dutch words about responsibility and fatherhood.
