Stefanowitz a.k.a Stephen J. Kroos or simply DJ Stephen is a well known Dutch DJ and producer. He combines warm melodies and weird electronic tunes together with deep minimal techno beats. Stephen started in the early 90’s in Amsterdam’s biggest clubs like the iT and produced his first 12" in 1997. "The Feeling" became became a club hit immediately.
Since this first release other productions and compilation albums followed,, for instance some of the dutch iT mix albums are mixed by him.

With his own label called 'i/o rekordings' and working under different names like Mhiniteck and Stefanowitz, we can expect lots of quality electronic dance music from him.

The best Dutch techno labels like Smoke and Strom recordings released his latest tracks on Beatport. He is playing and producing with so much passion and love for his music ; Stephen’s energetic techhouse / techno sets and productions , as well under his pseudo name : Stefanowitz , are not to be missed !
