Steven Tang Biography:

Tang, Misguided, Obsolete Music Technology

A Hong Kong native living in Chicago since 1981 and previously in Bronx, NY from 1976, Tang's humble beginnings in electronic music started with the discovery of House Music during the music's own infancy; spending many weekends recording DJ mixes off radio stations like WBMX, WCGI, shopping for the latest cuts of the day at the famous Imports' Etc, both were his only connection to the music at the time as he was still too young to frequent dance clubs.

As his fascination grew for this new form of music, as did his record collection encompassing other prominent dance genres of the day like 'Italo disco' and 'High energy'. It wasn't until 1988 that he decided to purchase his first pair of turntables and taught himself the "craft". During the 90's he studied Radio Broadcasting at Chicago's Columbia College and sporadically DJed at local events and clubs while persistently working on his next goal, to set up a recording studio and eventually produce his own work.

In 1998, with EP in hand Tang established his own record label, Emphasis Recordings and its first release, the "Windy City EP". It garnered attention from Ewan Jensen of Red Ember Records, Australia and in the following year, he recorded a track entitled "Visions Far Away" for Red Ember's "Deepsounds Vol. 1" various artist 12" compilation.

Memorial Day weekend 2002 saw Tang's international debut at the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival) and was one of the featured artists on the unofficial DEMF "Generator: Detroit 2002" CD compilation. After a four year hiatus and new distribution, 2006 marked the full return of output from Emphasis...the saga continues.
