Stefan Z has been surrounded by music his entire life. A strange combination of listening to his father’s Vangelis tapes as a young child in Toronto and playing piano as well as the trumpet in the jazz band throughout his high school life have both contributed to his current output of music.
Being submitted to the rave scene in 2000 opened his eyes to a foreign form of music, which immediately grabbed all his attention. DJ’ing was the next logical step not long after and has since seen many different genres of music pass through his record box. Releasing his first solo EP on Berlin label Resopal Shallware marked the beginning of Stefan Z’s career, which continued to develop with more releases on Circle Music, My Favourite Robot, Aurora Music and his own Rhombus imprint.
Rhombus was created in 2011 out of a need to be able to release his own brand of music. The core artists behind the label are all friends that have different musical backgrounds but all share the same affliction; to produce unique forms of audio. Second track in this stunning mix by Stefan comes from his own hands and will be released released on fresh Amsterdam-based label Subjekt Recordings. Subjekt has got big things lined up after its first release featuring Luis Leon and Eric Volta, with more fine artists to follow this summer; so keep an eye out.
