While the music is difficult to classify, Imphenzia reaches a worldwide audience with the mixture of trance, club and goa influenced music. Despite the vast number of electronic artists of today, the sound of Imphenzia carries unique characteristics that daily attract more listeners. Mainly releasing his music on the Internet has enabled tens of thousands of listeners from around the world to enjoy the hypnotic moods created in his compositions.
Stefan was born in Haninge a few miles south of Stockholm, Sweden in the year 1975. By making short segments of music for multimedia presentations in the early 1990s his interest quickly grew and full-length electronic tracks started to take shape. Being nothing more than a spare time hobby, the hardware set up was very limited and tracks were produced using nothing more than a computer and a piece of software called "Fast Tracker". During the first years the tracks were made in a project named "Elite Beat", and most of the completed tracks remain unreleased yet today.
It wasn't until 1997 that Imphenzia emerged, replacing the previous Elite Beat project. Tracks were released on the Internet and as the public showed much interest in the music, Stefan focused more resources and time, aiming to further progress as a musician and artist. The first independent album named "Sector" was released in the summer of 1999. Apart from being sold on and off the Internet, Sector also acted as the first demo CD. Shortly after the release of Sector, Stefan moved from Sweden to live in Liverpool, United Kingdom.
The following year Imphenzia released another album, "Propulsion", which raised the interest of numerous magazines, radio stations and on-line music web sites. Tracks included on the Propulsion album earned great reviews in magazines such as Computer Music, and also rocketed Imphenzia to a #2 position in the trance charts on the influential European music site "peoplesound.com".
The music can appropriately be described as lavishly filtered layers of euphoric pads, samples and effects with a deep genuine beat. While the majority of earlier releases were heavily genre focused and purely instrumental - new elements are being introduced as Imphenzia progresses. Also, the voice of another quickly emerging Internet artist Nicky F. can be heard in vocal performances in several of the later releases. Nicky will continue to work closely with Imphenzia bringing the music to life with vocals.
The third (double disc) album, Event Horizon, was released in October 2002 and the fourth album Illusion was released in early 2008.
Today, Imphenzia is drawing more listeners by the day and the milestone of a first record release through an established label is within reach. Apart from releasing tracks on the Internet and other media, Imphenzia is also preparing a live act for public performances.
