When you think of hard hitting hip-hop beats and with sophisticated melodies there’s only one name that comes to mind...Stoni.

This edgy powerhouse is a Brooklyn, NY native who grew up listening to everything from Bob Marley and Prince to U2 and Coldplay. Her musical journey began at the age of 16 with none other than Russell Simmons, co-founder of the pioneering hip-hop record label, Def Jam and hip-hop fashion industry icon. She was also personally groomed and mentored by musical engineering guru Bob Powers. While interning at several major recording studios in New York City, Stoni gained a vast knowledge of the inner workings of the music and recording industry and discovered a deep love and passion for music production and sound design. It’s that very same passion that drives her to constantly innovate sounds and push the boundaries of music as we know it.
In 2003, she was the first female producer to ever compete in a beat battle and win and she was also the first female to compete and win an international beat battle title. Stoni has been featured in several magazines, including being the first female music producer featured in Scratch Magazine, the hip hop music producer’s bible. She was among some of the music industry’s most renowned musicians, producers, artist, and songwriters headlining at the annual Remix Hotel NYC, where she rocked the audience with a live performance on her MPC drum machine. By 2007, while at Winter Music NAMM in California, Stoni had 2 groundbreaking live music showcase performances in front of thousands of spectators. When she was a featured performer later that Summer at Remix Hotel Miami with AKAI, she was dubbed “Queen of the MPC” because of her eyebrow raising and captivating performances.

“No matter how many no’s you may get, don’t stop until you hear someone say yes”.

“Trailblazer” is her nickname, because Stoni never follows trends, she sets them. She is unrelenting in her pursuit of knowledge and in mastering the intricacies of music production hardware and software, as well as being dead center on the pulse of the music industry. In 2011, Stoni was asked to become an A&R manager for AVID, parent company of industry music production leader ProTools. She broke barriers yet again by becoming the first female producer to be a featured artist and software demonstrator for Native Instruments. She’s also responsible for training the music industry’s top A-list producers including Noah “40” Shebib, Q-Tip, Just Blaze, DJ Khaled, Sunny Digital and Metro Boomin’ on how to use the latest music technology hardware and software.
When she needed a new challenge, she changed directions again and began collaborating with music technology transforming company, Roli. Working as a Research and Development contributor for the recently released Roli consumer product “Blocks”. In mid 2018, Stoni began working with sound design giant Output as a creator and developer to continue to push the limits of sound design. Her knowledge and mastery of music seems to be never ending. Stoni is in the studio right now working on new music for the masses. Having mastered the most popular production tools of the music industry, there’s only one place that Stoni can go from here and that’s up. The sky’s the limit.
