Stephen J. Kroos is a talented producer and DJ from the Netherlands. He grew up listening to the likes of Depeche Mode, OMD, Jarre, Kraftwerk and Art Of Noise and found home with Electronic Dance Music in 1988 during the Summer of Love. He soon found himself buying decks and started Djing, securing his first residency in Amsterdams Roxy club, from where his Djing talent went from strength to strength with regular gigs at clubs like Pacha and Ministry Of Sound. After gaining massive experience behind the decks of several clubs around the world, Stephen felt an urge to start producing his own music, and actually been producing music since 1997. 2003 was the year when Anjunabeats heard his brilliant, creative mix of techno & trance and fell in love instantly, especially with Phantazmz and Optimistick, which feature on his first EP release on the label. With a string of quality productions forthcoming an album on Anjunabeats you can expect big things for this talented Dutchman!!!
Stephen J. Kroos makes a welcome return to Anjunabeats with ‘Sadistick’, the lead single from his forthcoming album ‘Tecktonick’, which is set for release in January 2007. Sadistick is also the follow-up to ‘Phantazmz’, a tech monster that picked up plays from everyone from Carl Cox and Pete Gooding, to Tiesto and Eddie Halliwell. Here Kroos unleashes his trademark blend of techno and trance and the result is another peak-time tech banger. Stephen also provides all the mixes on this package, including the phonetically darkened ‘Deep Mix’, the tougher ‘Techno’ mix, and the tribal-edged TBA mix. A major new tech talent has landed – enjoy!
