A Hong Kong native living in Chicago since 1981, Steven Tang’s humble beginnings in electronic music started with the discovery of house music during the music’s own infancy, spending many weekends recording DJ mixes off radio and shopping for the latest cuts of the day at local record shops.

As his fascination grew for this new form of music, so did his record collection, and it wasn’t until 1988 that he decided to purchase his first pair of turntables and taught himself the “craft.” During the 90’s he studied Radio Broadcasting at Chicago’s Columbia College and sporadically DJed at local events and clubs while persistently working on his next goal, set up a personal recording studio and eventually producing his own work.

In 1998, Steven established Emphasis Recordings label with the debut of his first release, the “Windy City EP”. It garnered attention from Ewan Jensen of (Red Ember Records Australia, Moods & Grooves) and in the following year, he recorded a track entitled “Visions Far Away” for Red Ember’s “Deepsounds Vol. 1” various artist 12” compilation.

Memorial Day weekend 2002 saw Tang’s international debut at the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival) and was one of the featured artists on the unofficial DEMF “Generator: Detroit 2002” CD compilation. After a four year hiatus and new distribution, 2006 marked the full return of output from Steven with a brand new release under the alias, Obsolete Music Technology.

Fast forward to today, Steven has recent releases on Aesthetic Audio, Machining Dreams, Generator Records, and Eargasmic Recordings.
