Pieter De Meester and Maxim Helincks SHADY (half of Stavroz) have managed to find a silver lining during COVID-19. As the Coronavirus stopped touring life for Pieter and Max, they started working on their own project and birthed SHADY. Previously, they toured the world as two members of the four-member group Stavrov playing in the United States, Australia, Thailand, Mexico and countries in Europe. They’ve also appeared in major festivals including Coachella, Strawberry fields, Wonderfruit and iii points.
COVID-19 virus gave them the opportunity to explore the idea and quickly turned their project into reality. With 20 new track ideas, the emerging duo excitedly looks forward to 2021. Their music is electronic with guitar, bass, and vocals. Soulwax, Nicolas Jaar, Connan Mockasin, and Magnus all serve as major musical inspirations. For SHADY, it’s about doing what you love, not thinking about the consequences and most of all enjoying life.
