Website of electronic music producer and DJ Stu, born and raised in the hometown of LSD, Basel Switzerland. Colored by the sounds of vintage gear and home computers, Stu's work is a highly energetic blend of various musical styles created within the hardware limitations of the Atari ST and its internal beep maker. During many years he worked on and performed his own tunes on underground raves, club stages and festivals around the globe, where he showed off with his self-modified Atari and proved that high gloss sound is worth shit, if it doesn't make you bang your head. As a part of the so called micromusic scene, he focuses on the production of a crunchy original sound embedded into dancey arrangements. Chipmusic by Stu sounds like vintage 8-bit home computers on acid traversing contemporary and futuristic musical fields, rather than doing a repetition of what we know as the classic video game soundtracks from the past.
