S-Tone Inc.

Real Name:
Stefano Tirone
S-Tone Inc. has been for over ten years the primary music project of Stefano Tirone, musician from Milan, whose first music experiences date back to the early 80’s, during the new wave era (with tracks included into “Gathered” and “Body Section”, two compilations released by the magazine Rockerilla), but who, as a producer, starts working in the early 90’s, alternating house production to funky productions.

The influence of the British acid jazz scene of the early 90’s and his deep love for the 70’s soul and jazz music are the foundations of the S-Tone Inc. project, that starts in 1992 with the track Get Freaky Now, the received great appreciation in the UK and represents one of the earliest examples of made in Italy acid jazz music. His debut album was released in 1996 on the Milano 2000/Ishtar label under the title Love Unlimited and contains the track Ainda Sonhar, a composition that as the forerunner of the nu bossa genre and that got included into tens of compilations all over the world.

In 1997 he releases under the name Cosmorama a monothematic drum and bass project entitled “Space Odyssey”. Mainly through the third album under the name S-Tone Inc., released in 2002 on Schema/Ishtar and entitled Sobrenatural, he refines his style, made of Brazilian, soul and jazz influences, without forgetting the experiences that he’d made with various Italian and British DJ’s in the house music scene.

Terrific group, featuring Stefano Tirone (S-Tone). Sometimes they border on the contemporary side when they were on the Milano 2000 side of Idizion Ishtar. With their most recent release however they have gone to the Schema side, which is known for big bossa ala Nicola Conte, Gerardo Frisina, Soulstance and even Les Hommes.

They have I believe 4 releases in all. Love Unlimited, Space Odysssey, Free Spirit and Sobrenatural. The first three are thought of to be the relaxed ones. Sobrenatural will give you some latin and even India ambiance.

Check out the rework of their Free Spirit cut titled "Arejar". Redone by label-mates Soulstance, it's a thing of beauty!
