Steve Bug

Berlin, Germany

One of the leading online magazines for electronic music, the Resident Advisor, once called Steve Bug the “Gentleman of Techno” referring to his sense of duty and dependabilty as one of the world’s most renowned DJ and producer. The same professionalism that made him hardly miss a DJ gig at all, can be found in his work as a music writer, producer and owner of the Poker Flat Recordings label. Every step he takes is well considered, but always refined with his own fine humour.

Since the early days Steve Bug remained a multi-faceted artist who refuses to back down from the limelight. A dedicated, energetic and constantly surprising talent, Steve is nothing less than an electronic music ambassador, a much-loved spokesman to the people, and for good reason. Grown up in Germany‘s techno and acid-house heyday, Steve Bug‘s love for a perfect groove is as apparent now as it was back then. From the first steps as a DJ it was clear there was a strong talent waiting to be nurtured. His DJ skills and a keen, innovative ear led him not down the typical path of the early nineties trance and harder dance scene, but towards a fresher, hybrid sound merging stripped deep house, tweaked out acid and more minimal forms of techno and electronic music.

Following on from his third studio longplayer “Sensual” in 2002, which marked his international breakthrough as an album-artist, the essential “Bugnology” mix series, along with high profile mix CDs for Cocoon, Fabric, Fuse and more, continued to rouse support for Bug‘s much in-demand DJ style, and propelled him further across the globe, touring far and wide.

Apart from touring, producing and remixing Bug always kept developping his Poker Flat label. Milestones have been the more or less annual label compilations, a variety of artist albums, but also new concepts like the “Forward to the Past”-series. In spring 2012 Steve finally hosted the first official Poker Flat events in London and Barcelona to much applause.

Still driven by the hunger to break new grounds Steve Bug presents his fifth studio album “Noir” in October revealing yet a new and fresh approach.
