Stephan Krus's sound includes not only years of experience as a DJ, but also 20 years as a techno lover and fan. His djset is a mix of old-school rhythmic, distorted and industrial rhythms, hypnotic synths and power-full kicks: a journey towards unexplored galaxies with an ever-turned look towards the farthest past.
