Stephen Walking is Monstercat's leading producer. He's released more tracks through Monstercat than any other artist. His main genre is 118 bpm Dadrock but he calls it "Spacefunk".


Stephen Walking is the alias of Mike Toope, and is one of the first monstercat artists that appeared on Monstercat 001 - Launch Week alongside Halo Nova (currently known as Varien), Ephixa, Arion, Going Quantum, Neilio, and Feint. According to Toope's vlogs, he knows Going Quantum, Ephixa, Soulero and Tristam in real life and works on his songs without any professional equipment. He has also shown his house a couple of times in his vlogs. He has contributed to many common genres on Monstercat, including dubstep, drumstep, electro house, trap, and moombahton. He is also well known to experiment with sounds and styles not necessarily pertaining to one single genre.

Toope is also freinds with Chung, a graphics designer that was contracted out for monstercat, who is also the one responsible for the design of the visualizer on YouTube.
