Little is known about Manchester based Stephanie Sykes. Not one for sharing insignificant details on social media or shouting out about bookings or projects… Don’t be fooled though. Artists of this form are few and far between. Those who know and follow her will testify and speak of an underlying characteristic or attribute that could quite easily be summed up by common words such as Passion, Dedication or even Obsession for Techno music.
Stephanie Sykes spends the majority of her time in the studio creating her own ever evolving unique style. To pigeon hole her sound or give it a specific label would undermine her flexibility and creativeness. Her productions consist of slower, atmospheric and hypnotic pieces as well as driving and relentless 4/4 Techno, with some tracks even carrying a variety of styles to give them that unique and unusual character.
Perhaps this concoction of complimenting sounds is due to a hunger for traveling, exploration, culture and seeking out new experiences across the continent. Stephanie regularly visits Berlin, a city where Techno culture was born with the fall of the wall. A place where she can soak up the atmosphere be it in some of the most iconic clubs in the scene, or simply relaxing in coffee shops and speaking to likeminded people. It’s no surprise that Stephanie takes inspiration from all aspects of her life, not just a single element or particular artist…
