Resident Advisor once called Steve Bug the “gentleman of techno” referring to his sense of duty and dependability as a DJ and producer. Next month he will be playing four dates in the US as part of his world tour to celebrate the release of his latest studio album ‘Paradise Sold’.
Having grown up in Germany’s techno and acid-house heyday, Steve love for a 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-90s 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.
This year Steve teamed up with Langenberg on the studio album ‘Paradise Sold’ - a full 10-track album of house music on Bug’s own Poker Flat Recordings, described as “elegantly euphoric” by Mixmag.
For fans of house and techno, this is apparently a rare chance to see Steve in his element.
‘Paradise Sold’ is out now on Poker Flat Recordings.
