Ivo Foreal

Dj and producer Ivo Foreal was born in Kassel (Germany) in 1975. He 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 was involved in organising jazz music concerts, so Ivo got to listen to alot of music already from young age.

On a later age Ivo finished his economical study and got a job. Still he was playing at home and sometimes at small parties. In 1997 he started to play a little bit in a few small bars in Eindhoven (Holland). Here he got the chance to play in front of small audiences and practicising the general dj skills.

After doing that for a few years Ivo went to be the resident DJ at a new club in Eindhoven: De Rechter. Club Risk, a promoter from Amsterdam, also 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: Café 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).

His all time hero is already for many years Danny Tenaglia. This man is without a doubt his biggest example! Other Dj’s that inspired him in the last years are: Tania Vulcano, Locodice, Ricardo Villalobos, Pan Pot, Umek, Joel Mull and Chymera.

In 2010 Ivo and a very old friend of him, Dimitri van Arnhem, started a new a label: Lowendcommunity. The label will release also tracks from supertalented producers like Kenflow, Fidel, Sene Ceanes. Their first release was the 1st of october 2010 on Lowendcommunity. Before the label started they got already full support on some of their upcoming releases from names like Laurent Garnier, Michel de Hey, Jeff Mills, Hermanez and many more.
