Stephen’s productions have been continuing to garner respect and support from the scenes biggest luminaries and his productions are gaining an International audience.
Stephens second appearance on the coveted ‘Children Of Tomorrow’ label is a dark dance floor soaked affair. Heavy kick drums and menacing rhythms seem to be the flavour of this EP. Mahoney presents a tormenting and malicious package, distorted textures and piercing lead synths jolt through the mix and demand your regard. This is right up my street. Excellent work from one of Ireland’s most consistent techno producers.
