    Extratonal Infrastructure is back from the holidays. With a freshly charged battery, we continue the second half of our extratonal program of 2023. This time our event is dedicated to the New Dutch Naïvity, which means Dutch-language pop music for a new era!

    So-Fi (real name: Sophie Reekers) enters the Rotterdam pop scene as some sort of David Byrne with a cassette player: “Hello, here I am!” She sings about the veneer of our social interaction on her debut EP "Verder Gaat Het Goed" (which translates to something like: "But Verder Goes Good.") Highly recommended for those who like cheap Yamaha trumpets, synthetic stardust and overall lo-fi moods!


    Joris Anne is a multifacetted cult pop-entrepeneur, hailing from The Hagues. Those in the know, know him, while others are dying to know more about this chronicler of our tragicomic existence. The last few months he's been hard at work recording his fourth full length LP 'Hartendief' with friend/colleague Thor Kissing. The album will be launched at Varia before your very eyes, as part of Anne's debut performance!
