Biography

There are 2 artists with the name Torus:

1. Joeri Woudstra, who hails from the Netherlands. He released his debut, self-titled EP, on the Sonic Router imprint, on the 12th March 2012. 6 tracks long it’s a deft exploration of mood that sets a torrent of found samples, ambient swirls and little wayward riffs to post-Dilla drum patterns. It’s hazy, crackly hangover music. A collection of tracks that manage to sound archaic before they’ve even been mixed down, fusing Woudstra’s unique approach to production with a sense of isolation and introspection.

Woudstra, on the vision behind his music: “The idea behind this EP is that I wanted to make tracks that were deeper than just some throw away beats. I wanted to go in and truly create an environment; tracks that I really put some emotion into and that I could be proud of to be released as a whole.
I come from The Hague in the Netherlands and we kinda have all the environments you could think of put together,” he continues. “We’ve got the beach, we got forests and woods, we got plains and we’ve got downtown and sometimes the whole city is covered in snow. In my music I move away from the crowdedness of the city to create a more natural and organic environment; but I also like taking a bit of the static interference from the bustling city and putting it all together into a some sort of ambience.” …
