The galaxy of French beat makers has recently greeted a new star: Stwo. Rising from a generation of home studio tinkerers (his student room in Barcelona was his first playground), here is someone who has absorbed the teachings of Madlib and Flying Lotus, before brilliantly emancipation himself. His EPs (solo or in collaboration with the likes of Superpoze) are a testament to his mastery of groove and atmosphere, crafted with the tip of his fingers. And his stage performances are proof that these appendages are quick and highly active, so much so that his drum machines run the risk of combustion.
