After an extended time away from music production & DJ'ing due to ear problems, I will be making my return to DJ'ing, serious music production, clubs & festivals as of October 2015. Chronic ear infections are no joke, so protect you hearing guys and girls. Lots of new music coming very soon!

PASSION AND DRIVING FORCE
Stephan has been striving for studio perfection since he started producing in 2001. His addiction to music technology led him to secure a job with Turnkey in London, one of Europe’s most iconic music technology companies, where he got hands on experience with most of today’s high end music production software and studio hardware. His passion for music production and studio engineering drove him to work full time from his London based studio where he collaborated with many industry stalwarts including Nano Records, Blond:ish, Meat Katie, members from the iconic British Band The Clash to name but a few. His productions have been playlisted by music heavyweights including Sander Kleinenberg, Funkagenda, Oliver Moldan, Nic Fanciulli, Jerome Ism-Ae, Jody Wisternoff, Markus Shulz, Anderson Noise, Paul Oakenfold & many more.
Stephan was also responsible for producing the radio show known as Psychedelic Sessions which enjoyed widespread success and was a collaboration with Nano Records, providing a platform for the label to showcase it’s artists and latest releases on some of the biggest edm internet radio stations in the world.
Being a promoter, Stephan joined forces with another South African DJ (Neutrino), also based in London. Thus, the A.T.A.R.I. Project came into existence, a London based South African Psychedelic & Progressive Trance Promotion responsible for doing some of the most memorable Psychedelic Trance clubbing events in London in recent years.
Currently working as creative director at , Audio Active Studios, Stephan is the head mixing & mastering engineer, producer, sound designer and music technology course instructor, offering and teaching courses in nearly every music technology product available today.
