Stefan Altenburger (Zürich, 1968) is a Swiss visual artist who is best known as musician Golden Boy for his collaborations with Miss Kittin such as the club hit "Rippin Kittin."[1] He is not to be confused with the American hip hop artist Golden Boy known as Fospassin.

Career[edit]

A resident of Zurich, Switzerland, Altenburger first found recognition as a visual artist, winning the 1991 Swiss Federal Prize for Design and the 1994 Swiss Federal Prize for the Arts. His gallery shows traveled the world, getting him published in a multitude of European publications. However, in addition to his visual work in design and photography, Altenburger also began producing electronic dance music in the '90s as Klettermax and Golden Boy. Source Records released his self-titled EP as Klettermax in 1998; and his Golden Boy album Or was released in 2002, featuring vocal contributions from Miss Kittin.[2]
