Growing up in the 80s, Stefan Benz aka Lotek Style wasn’t only influenced by its music but also by the burgeoning home computer scene. He was fascinated by early video games and demos - works of digital art produced by groups of enthusiasts across the world, all trying to push their machine to it’s very limits.
Fastforward to 2020 and Stefan is still contributing to the scene, still pushing his now antiquated Atari ST and Falcon to the edge, and there’s no doubt that this part of his life has a big influence on his music and lyrics which are often set in a hacker-related context.
In 1991, Stefan started DJing and took his first musical steps under the moniker MC Laser. After about a break of nearly 10 years Lotek Style continues to follow this path, fueled by a heady mix of cyberpunk, 80s music, Synthwave, and, of course, Atari. When Lotek isn’t making, playing, or listening to music, he is heavily supporting the Demozoo archive.
cTrix had hoped to once again visit Evoke in 2020 - Amiga in hand - but this is the next best thing: An extended set of Amiga bangers from a secret studio bunker in Melbourne, Australia. He’ll be busting out everything from original rave bangers & acid stompers to drum’n’bass & jungle re-edits. Apparently he’s even found some locally brewed Kölsch to inspire some dirty swipes of the high-pass filter and cuts of teh faders. Come party, get those arms up in the air and let-loose like it’s 1992 all over again!
cTrix has been making Amiga tunes since the early 90’s, is part of disasterarea / syntaxpartycrew / Elix democrews and has toured 15 countries with the Amiga/Lynx/2600/Megadrive/NES/MSX+FM/DMG01/SNES all taking stage at some point. He’s currently working on a CPC demo for Syntax2020.
