STU

STU Toxid seed by STU

As a true master, digger and trendsetters of the scene, Swiss Atari ST mean machine STU has carried his instruments from all over Europe into siberia and reached oversea areas, such as the United States and Japan, with a list of live appearances that goes from illegal underground raves to legendary clubs and internationally known festivals. Don Atari electro STU is a hard working original, that has been around since the early days of micromusic.net and he keeps on pushing his music out under various nicknames.Without sticking to genres, he formed his own musical style and enjoys to explore techniques and technologies with the limited soundchip of an Atari ST homecomputer as a main instrument.

Illuminated by an inspirational range that is eventually unbounded within the universe, everything gets squeezed into 4-bit samples and runs down the tracker groovy, like a sick database. As many chiptune musicians, STU previously released his music for free on the internet and was promptly ripped off by a norwegian band, which then resulted into the first plagiarism debate of the 8-bit scene. With a ‘use what you have philosophy’, STU understands perfectly how to treat a minimal setup with a maximum impact and successfully defended his master’s degree thesis equipped with an Atari ST.

STU has released his music on vinyl, CD, cassette tapes, USB-sticks and floppy disks, as well as in various digital formats under his own administration. He cooperated with labels like 8bitpeoples, micromusic, Retinascan, Ubiktune, YM Rockerz and was personally involved in the Bleepstreet label relaunch 2008. His music appeared on several compilations and other media, apart from that STU also received lots of interesting remix requests by a few famous artists, such as the New York based hip-hop legend Kurtis Blow. During the past few years he shared stages with a wide range of 8-bit related fellow artists, as well as a few known IDM internationals like Patric Catani, Otto van Schirach or Ceephax Acid Crew.

Sin mantener un género, ha formado su propio estilo musical y disfruta explorando técnicas y tecnologías con el sonido limitado de un Atari ST como instrumento principal.

Iluminado por un rango de inspiración que deja temporalmente ilimitado el universo, todo queda compactado en samplers de 4-bits y sale elegantemente del secuenciador, como un ataque a la base de datos. Como muchos músicos del chiptune, STU previamente distribuyó su música gratis en internet y pronto fue estafado por una banda Noruega que despertó el primer debate sobre el plagio en la scene de 8-bits. Con una filosofía de “usa lo que tengas”, STU entiende perfectamente como tratar un mínimo arreglo con un máximo impacto y defiende exitosamente su tesis equipado con el Atari ST.
