Why is he important?

The history of Detroit techno is steeped in tradition and myth, and there is no better exemplar of this than DJ Stingray. Schooled in the art of djing by Kenny Dixon Jnr, and picked to tour with the legendary Drexciya ensemble, Stingray’s sub-aquatic techno transmissions command respect whether he’s playing for a hometown assembly of techno royalty or festival audiences worldwide.


Why have we booked him?

Every year there is an act at CTEMF that we’re all a little bit selfish about by wanting to tick off our own bucket lists. DJ Stingray is that artist. He exemplifies a massive part of the CTEMF sound. No mess, no fuss, straight up Stingray313.
