When these two youngsters aka HOMEWORK started messing around with turntables, back in 2007, they performed in immaculate white shirts and raven black ties. Despite being longtime Dutch partners in musical crime, Tom Waist and Zip Stolk have moved beyond this iconography, yet still emanate a sense of clear-headed playfulness. Behind the swagger lies a wide-raging love for contemporary dance music, that is always beneficial, in the ever changing spheres of house music.

Born in Rome, Italy, music has been a driving force in STEFANO RITTERI’s life since a young age.

Refusing to define himself by any one scene or sound, Ritteri continues to strive to create something new and fresh with every new song. Define Stefano at your own peril, as he keeps throwing out curveballs with each move he makes.
