Like the part-man, part-machine allusions of his nickname, producer-performer-composer Stefon “Bionik” Taylor is at one in both acoustic and electronic realms. He sings, plays guitar, bass, drums, and percussion, writing and recording all of his own sample-free music. As a producer of electronic soundscapes, his recent live performances have taken him to Electric Forest, Summer Camp, Sonic Bloom, Arise, Imagine, and Backwoods music festivals as well as Minneapolis’ First Avenue, Los Angeles’ Low End Theory, and Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory.

Over the course of his career, Taylor has worked with classic and contemporary artists. He’s made singer/songwriter John Martyn's voice sound like a horn, hip-hop trio Far East Movement's first single a radio smash, and rapper Ice-T's lyrics chopped and screwed. He’s been in the studio with legendary producers like George Martin (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix) and Peter Mokran (R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, The Flaming Lips). His original compositions and productions have been synced in the Fast and Furious series, Insecure television show, NBA 2K12 video game, and many more.

Continuing to parlay the Bionik contradictions of humanism and industrialism, Taylor released his second record of original music titled The Way I Be in 2016. In 2017, he is set to release collaborative EPs with rapper/singer Manchita (GRRRL PRTY) and Doomtree’s producer Lazerbeak, as well as his third solo project, titled Hypnotic Magnetism.

“People want to hear the sounds of their generation—the sirens and angular synth sounds that are a part of their chaotic, fast-paced existence. I want to supply the soundtrack for everyday moments in their lives.” -- Bionik
