Steve Bug

A dedicated, energetic and constantly surprising talent, Steve Bug is nothing less than an electronic music ambassador. Resident Advisor once called Steve Bug the “Gentleman of Techno” referring to his sense of duty and dependability as one of the world’s most renowned DJs and producers. The same professionalism that means he’s hardly ever missed a DJ gig is evident in his work as a composer, producer and owner of the Poker Flat Recordings label. Every step he takes is well considered, but always tempered with his own fine humour.Having 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. 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 instead towards a fresher, hybrid sound–merging stripped deep house, tweaked out acid and more minimal forms of techno and electronic music.His international breakthrough was his fourth studio long player Sensual in 2002, which, followed by the essential Bugnology mix series along with high profile mix CDs for Cocoon, Fabric, Fuse and more, continued to rouse support for Steve’s in-demand DJ style, propelling his career to new heights.With annual label compilations, a variety of artist albums, and new concepts like the Forward to the Past series, Steve Bug continues to steadily develop Poker Flat. In recent years, he has taken the label further afield, with the Big Bluff event series stopping off in major cities worldwide and in hosting a label party with Boiler Room Berlin.In 2015, Steve made a welcome return to his 10-year-dormant Traffic Signs alias, began a fun vinyl-only project with Clé entitled Apes Go Bananas and also a Wax Only series on Poker Flat. The coming year will see him release on the label arm of famed Paris club Rex, and begin working towards a new album. After so long in business, it's a testament to Steve Bug's unwavering vision that the Poker Flat name remains at the cutting edge of dance music.Having 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.
