Producer-performer-composer Stefon “Bionik” Taylor is at one in both acoustic and electronic realms. He sings, plays a variety of instruments, and writes and records all of his own sample-free music. As a producer of electronic soundscapes, his recent live performances have taken him to Minneapolis’ First Avenue, Los Angeles’ Low End Theory, and Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory.
Taylor has worked with classic and contemporary artists. He’s made singer/songwriter John Martyn’s voice sound like a horn, hip-hop trio Far East Movement’s first single a radio smash, and rapper Ice-T’s lyrics chopped and screwed. He’s been in the studio with legendary producers like George Martin (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix) and Peter Mokran (R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, The Flaming Lips). His original compositions and productions have been synced in the Fast and Furious series, Entourage television show, NBA 2K12 video game, and many more.
