Introducing: Tol Gruber

Apostolis Loussis or better known in the techno world as Tol Gruber, was born in Athens on August 2nd, 1986.

At the young age of nine, he began his education in music with the guitar, but his passion slowly began to steer towards electronic music and the desire to compose such music. He immersed himself completely in the electronic music scene and each experience influenced his sound even more in his own productions.

Completely self taught, over the years, Tol’s eclectic catalogue increased with solid productions. Through many trials and tribulations, he finally discovered his true passion and niche in Techno music as deep, dark and experimental sounds became the “signature” of Tol Gruber’s musical compositions.

Over the years, some of Tol Gruber’s music has been played on radio stations like Cannibal radio. He has been interviewed by ART UBER ALLES and Freeze magazine and with increased experience and fine tuning in his Techno, he caught the attention of Brood Audio, which saw the potential in him and signed him as an artist.

Besides having released previously on Focus Records, Shout records, and Italo Business, he also manages his own label, Voodoo Records.

His passion continues to drive him and be the main force behind his music. With releases lined up on Brood Audio, Frakture Audio, Hybrid Confusion and keeping busy in the studio, you can be sure to expect a lot more from Tol Gruber.


Extrema Outdoor – XO Live 14 juli 2012

Yes, 2012 is het jaar van verandering! Extrema Outdoor gooit het roer om. Let’s go into the new!

XO dient als nieuwe afkorting van Extrema Outdoor en de toevoeging ’Live’ geeft aan dat we buiten dj’s meer bijzondere en uniekere live shows van dance-artiesten gaan programmeren.

Naast een aantal ’live acts’ presenteert Extrema Outdoor ook meer nieuwe talenten. Extrema gelooft in de toekomst van dance, met meer livemuziek en überhaupt meer levendigheid op het podium. Extrema Outdoor staat natuurlijk bekend om haar show en decoratie, maar dansen blijft het allerbelangrijkst.

De live-optredens en bekendste dj’s worden voornamelijk gepresenteerd op twee nieuwe hoofdpodia. Eén daarvan is een openluchtpodium, pal aan het strand van Aquabest waar veel theater en spektakel de leidraad is. Hier vind je een mix van ’s werelds top-dj’s en verassende live acts. Meer show en entertainment is het devies!

Het tweede hoofdpodium is een enorme indoor arena waar je naast ’dj gigs’ ook een aantal imposante live shows kunt verwachten met veel licht- en videospektakel. De tent is volledig donker en dus ideaal voor zogenaamde dark shows. Verwacht hier edgy dance.

De muziek op Extrema Outdoor loopt wederom uiteen. Met clubhouse, electro, techno, eclectische house en, nieuw dit jaar natuurlijk: dubstep! Extrema Outdoor heeft daarbij dit jaar nieuwe collabo’s met labels en concepten die een area zullen hosten.

Maar ’live’ betekent ook meer performance, theater, andere kunstzinnige voorstellingen en visuele pracht. De eindshow wordt over de gehele dag verspreid. Een totaalbeleving dus!
