welcome to youniverse


Lodewyck and Nick started of their need to play at the age of 15.

Lodewyck got introduced to the early Vinyl days of Minimal and at the time trance. After training for years Lodewyck grouped up with his brother to create the duo Ruttenbergs, which played at major festivals in the Netherlands and clubs all over the world from South Africa to our beloved Ibiza and releasing tracks at Armada, Traum and Parquet Recordings. After Ruttenbergs broke up, Lodewyck met Nick, his now business partner and went on to create two festivals in the Netherlands called “In the Cloud Festival” and the infamous “Op de Valrave” resulting in almost 100+ parties in the five years to come.

After finding eachother personally but also musically they joined to create Youniverse, a more tech and tribal infused sound that would also inspire them to launch Colored Records to release their view on music. Remixes from the like of Reinier Zonneveld and Mattia Pompeo launched one of their first EP’s into the beatport top 40’s. Focussing on the future the two dived into the studio and are now working on a brand new wave of music which is bound to show up during 2018. They are stationed on both Ibiza and Amsterdam, the two places that musically feel most like home
