Steve & Donna are parents of two primary school age girls and as such have a social group of parents with similar age children. After numerous get togethers and social gatherings it was decided, (After a few drinks I'm sure!) for Steve's Technics turntables to come out of retirement. After a couple of outdoor parties it became evident that many of our group reminisce and look back fondly on the raves and club nights they went to so the opportunity to do some flashback events was too good to miss!
An avid collector of vinyl, I've been spinning since early 90's, hung up the turntables to raise a family but still play out from time to time. Over the years I've played in Holland, Canary Islands, and many UK venues, raves, clubs, bars, festivals. I love many genres of music and I play sets across House (Deep,Filtered,Funky,Progressive,Vocal,Classic), Breaks, Drum & Bass, Disco, Soul, Funk, Boogie, Electro, Techno, Trance, Hardcore/Rave,Acid,Hip Hop, Garage, 80's, Chill/Ambient and Acid Jazz and more.
I've done my fair share of promotion over the years, regularly promoting nights back in the day such as Backroom Beatz, Liquid Funk and The Funk Phenomenon. I've DJ'd for Smirnoff, Virgin Records and O'Neils as well as many independent clubs and promoters and spent a number of years as the official support DJ for the indie band Joda. From 1997 until 2000 I played on and co-ran Spectrum 107.9 FM.
