"There's a hint of melody in a series of synth notes—the EP's cheeriest element—buried in the mix. Like many great producers, Laubner isn't concerned with conventional structure." 3.9/5 Resident Advisor

STL - Nonzero Sonics Stephan Laubner's quest for sound may have entered its 15th year, but the journey continues.

Another great review in for STL's upcoming EP

Electro Review: "A wavering dreamlike quality is stitched through the intent of this record, as new sounds build from the long exposure mixes, fresh visual aspects are born in the mind as each progression of this tranquil but almost dangerous background flows from the last."

I’m back!

In case you were wondering why I’ve been off the radar for some time now, one thing is for sure, I haven’t given up music That’s the one thing I ca...nnot do.

After an intense time touring consistently for over 3 years, I gave myself some space, I took time to reflect, think, get inspired and most importantly: write music! Taking some time for myself and away from the spotlight wasn’t empty of work, quite the opposite. There will be lots of new material coming out this year and early next year (and yes, a new album included!!!).

There will also be plenty of amazing music from great artists on my label DARK MATTERS + more surprises. You’ll learn more about this very soon. Thanks for your patience and for sticking with me.
