Michael Edward Stachowski (born July 26, 1976), better known as DUS, is a Hip Hop producer from the small town of Spotswood, New Jersey. His earlier nick-name was "Mydus" but has since been shortened.
Originally making hip-hop beats from his New Jersey home using FL Studio, DUS has since released an instrumental album entitled Dusfunktional. The album features 17 tracks arranged to make you feel as if you're being told a story while listening.
DUS currently has a style that can't be categorized. Aside from original production he also relies on samples from artists his parents used to listen to such as Barry White and other Motown greats. He attributes the bass lines he uses in production to 9th wonder & Jay Dilla, while he claims to have learned sampling techniques from The Rza.
