Decoded Residents Radio presents Stephen Mahoney

At the age of eleven, a fledgling artist grew while listening to pirate radio and dreaming of attending raves with the realisation and awareness of living in a post-Summer of love landscape. Armed with only a couple of Billy Nasty mix tapes, Nirvana’s Nevermind and a Walkman.

Fast forward to 1997, Technics 1210’s and records, acid, techno, Chicago, electro breaks and progressive dominated his record buying; Pascal Feos and Gataneo Parisio being early influences. There was also a fusion with Dublin nightlife: Francois and Eamon Doyle. D1 Records had a massive impact, as did sets from Surgeon, Dave Clarke, Robert Armani, not too mention Underworld and The Chemical Brothers. It was the 1990’s rave heaven coupled with insecurity, mild depression and plenty of cash.

Stephen left Dublin to travel shortly after, the mid twenties were to be plagued by illness and addiction. While pushing through all of this he entered a new phase of creativity attending University for an Art degree, working with various collectives and in 2010 began producing.

It’s now 2016 and Stephen is out the other side making killer records, also one half of techno duo Flexure, Shelter Records label owner and gaining respect and support from the scenes biggest luminaries.
