Stephanie Sykes has made quite a splash in the UK techno underground—and beyond—over the past few years. Born and raised in Germany but these days living in the UK, Sykes emerged with a pair of tracks for Dasha Rush's well-loved Fullpanda Records in 2014. She's gone on to take her unique style of darkly mesmerizing techno and evocative ambient to the labels VENT (her 'Black Simulation' EP was made even better by a remix from Rush) and Cenotaph, and she already has a handful of releases lined up for 2016, including another Fullpanda EP.
Meanwhile, Sykes continues to draw praise for her formidable skills behind the decks. Along with her regular appearances at the beloved Jaded afterhours sessions, she holds a residency at Birmingham's legendary Atomic Jam night, and the calls for international gigs are increasing.
