Stylus is the pseudonym of the reclusive experimentalist Dafydd Morgan. In April 1997 he released the track "Kinski" (a tribute to Klaus Kinski) on a 10" split record with the band Longstone. "A lengthy, multi-layered piece of electronica, taking in vintage Cluster and 90's digi-dub", as The Wire found out. In 1998 he was part of The Serpents, a collaboration of artists on Ochre Records and Cradiff based Ankst Records (including David Wrench, Skyray, Will Sergeant of Echo & The Bunnymen, Ectogram, Longstone, Rheinhallt H. Rowlands, The Anglesey Ambient Experiment, Zoe Skoulding and Môr) which released their debut 7" single No Mask, No Cloak, Dim Gobaith on 18 May 1998. On 24 June 1998 his track "Paradise Ranch" was broadcast on "The John Peel Show". About "Glass Dream 1", released in November 1998 on the first INFRASONIC WAVES-EP-sampler, the Record Collector wrote: "Stylus put Baudelaire to a throbbing psychedelic backdrop"... Stylus now has forthcoming tracks appearing on Liquefaction Empire, Oggum and Space Age compilations.
