After learning to do edits on his double tape player as a youngster, it wasn’t long until at the age of 15 Steve was one of the hottest mobile disco DJs in Liverpool, making drunken Aunties dance at 18th birthday parties, and with the money he made, was buying the latest underground Hip Hop, Soul and House tunes..and he was hooked! At 18 he was playing cool bars and clubs (given his first chance by Dave Ralph at the legendary Fallows), and soon progressed to playing alongside Garnier, Sasha, Seaman, Stu Allen & Nipper.
For years, Steve was learning his craft playing all around the UK, and gaining himself a solid reputation, including many residencies in his beloved home town of Liverpool and by the time he was in his mid 20s, he started a night called Alderaan, in a room above a pub (the infamous Lemon Lounge) and brought Howells, Burridge, Pappa, Zabeila, Parks & Wilson, Fortier, Slacker, Quivver, Cass, Moonface (all rising starts at the time) to come and play – after they had played Alderaan, they all begged to return to play again.. and they all did… many times!
He moved into production and collaborated with Evolution to produce ‘Jawa’, a tribal edged progressive belter that was heavily supported by Howells, Kleinenberg, Maas, Saeed & Palash, Pappa and the rest of the progressive mafia and it featured on 4 compilation Cd’s. Steve is back in the studio working on several productions, nearing completion in the not too distant future.
Juice FM, Liverpool for the last 5 years have employed Steve to host a weekly radio show called ‘The Red Zone’, were Steve plays his hottest upfront tunes, and features the Worlds Premier league DJs as guests. You name them, they’ve been on his show!

Steve liased with the DJs to help them find those ‘special tunes’ to the DJs on top of their game, plus also was label manager at 3 Beat Digital
His recent ‘3 beat label management (in House Mix)’ sold well across Europe, thrusting Steve’s name further onto the International stage, proving that as an adaptable music lover, and just as at home playing chill out tracks at a sunset to playing cool house sets or a banging peak time warehouse set.
Nowadays, with Such legendary gigs under his belt as Cream & Creamfileds, Bedrock, Renaissance, Circus, Global Underground Parties, The Warehouse Project, Essential Mix parties, Shindig, The Zurich Street parade (to 1.1 Million people!) and Shelly’s plus cool events including being the only Dj to have played at the Tate Gallery Liverpool, and delivering not one but two mixes for Digweed’s Transitions Global Transitions show, and with counties he’s played at including Russia, Taiwan, Costa Rica, Norway, Finland, France, Greece, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal and Mexico, Steve is riding the crest of the wave that is his own success.
