On 28 January Steve Stein AKA Steinski gave a talk called ‘A History of Hip Hop’

Steve Stein- AKA ‘Steinski’- is an acknowledged master of the art of collaged sound design. Originally a computer programmer, Steve was one of the founders of New York Hip Hop. Many of the recordings he produced with Douglas DiFranco (AKA ‘Double D’) are classics of old school cut-up DJ work. His work influenced many subsequent sound designers such as DJ Shadow, Coldcut and the Avalanches. Steinski still produces mesmerising and complex collages of sound, often as live mixes. He discussed his life and work, providing anecdotes, working methods and examples from his key role in the invention of modern dance music and totally unique personal oeuvre.

The following day Steinski gave a masterclass at the School of Computing Informatics and Media:
