One for your bucket list – it’s a rarity for DJ Stingray to deliver a live set, which makes his presence at Dekmantel 2023 all the more special. A pioneer of the gritty and futuristic genre of electro, it’s truly difficult to overstate the influence that the Detroit native has had over the course of his 30+ year career. The Urban Tribe founder is an associate of the mythical duo Drexciya and was taught to mix by Kenny Dixon Jr. (AKA Moodymann). Stingray is a master of light speeds, preferring fast tempos and inventive beat patterns to more accessible, club-friendly rhythms. As one of the world's most respected underground players, he's now at the forefront of the electro renaissance, spearheading a fresh appetite for cyborg sounds on dance floors.
