Biography

Having been around the house music scene in one form or another for the last ten years, Steve Linney knows his music. Starting out as a reviewer for M8 Magazine, Steve has moved on to putting his own parties, DJ’ing at some of the North East’s biggest nights and releasing his own productions.

Music wise, you can hear Steve mixing up his own blend of dirty house, twisted tribal and electro influenced cuts. He’s been resident at Newcastle€™s legendary house night Nice for almost 4 years and has played alongside some of the top names in the business, such as Graeme Park and K-Klass. His other residency is with Nice’s sister venue, Camp David bar. Guest spots include gigs with: habit, Riff Raff, Pink, Revolution, Conspiracy, Sunday Trading and Beyond Bar.

Steve’s own parties have included events such as spank! , which hosted a summer river cruise with godfather of house Marshall Jefferson, and dirtyblondes presents!, Steve’s latest party run in conjunction with Climax Recordings . Along with a regular bar event at Clear Bar in Newcastle look out for some interesting parties in the near future.

Steve’s productions range from his tribal influenced sounds on Climax Recordings through to his own dirty electro house track on Fragile Recordings. His first release was a remix of ‘Speechless’ by U Facilities vs. The Man on Climax.

‘The Steve Linney remix is excellent’ – DJ19 (Japan)

“Climax reaches release 10 in style with a progressive house 2 tracker you can’t possibly miss. On the a-side is a pumpin Steve Linney mix, with a chunky, tech housey groove surrounded by a load of quality strings and wicked hooks.” – tuneinn

“Steve Linney lays down a tech fused take on “Speechless” with rattling percussion keeping the energy and a brilliant breakdown of strings and vocal sample – Personal – 8/10 Chart – 7" – Brian Cody (Nova FM Dublin)

Steve’s mix topped out in the Balance chart at number 31 and with the Mara mix on the flip side the track was played out by the likes of John Digweed, Seb Fontaine, D. Ramirez, Moshic, Deep Dish, Eric Morrillo and even John OO Fleming .

Flesh & Sin has just been released on Fragile Recordings and is already picking up positive reactions.

“Already earning a reputation for his peak-time, sleazy electro house grooves, Steve Linney delivers the goods this time with a techy bassline-driven groover. Excellent showcase and another solid release from Fragile.” – Dave Begg (M8 Magazine)
