Steve Bug is one of electronic music’s true originals. His relentless commitment to quality – both in his own work and in the many producers he has championed – has made him one of the world’s most revered artists and curators, and along with his labels Poker Flat, Audiomatique, Dessous Recordings, Traffic Signs or Raw Elements has made a sizeable contribution to building the European house and techno scene as we know it.
A dedicated, energetic and constantly innovative talent, 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. That 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: a label whose influence on house and techno cannot be overstated. Every step he takes is well considered, but always tempered with his own fine sense of humour and innate love for his craft.
Having grown up in Germany’s techno and acid-house hey- day, 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.
Although dedicated to his own labels – first and foremost the aforementioned Poker Flat – Steve’s talents have naturally attracted the attention of other imprints. Bedrock, Knee Deep In Sound, Minus, Cocoon, Ovum, Kompakt and Defected are just some of the labels that have championed original tracks and remixes that are rightly regarded as timeless classics.
Steve is also one of the few electronic artists capable of put- ting out a ‘proper’ album. Having released no fewer than six full length LPs over the last two decades, his latest Paradise Sold alongside Langenberg – a full ten-track album of exquisitely crafted house music on Poker Flat – was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, and described as “elegantly euphoric” by Mixmag.
Steve continues to tour relentlessly, maintaining a loyal following around the world and more than two decades into his storied career, Steve Bug still remains a singularly talented artist. Long may his reign continue.
Seattle’s UNITING SOULS is internationally regarded as a West Coast “house music institution” (The Stranger), producing world-class events known for their intimate, friendly, down-to-earth good vibes since 1997.
Uniting Souls Music, the record label branch, has featured several chart-topping releases, annual sales in over 70 countries & licensing deals with top labels & services, including Toolroom (UK), Om Records (SF), Voltaire (Germany), Balance (Australia), Exotic Refreshment (Poland), and NordicTrax (Canada). USM releases have been charted by the likes of Mark Knight, Green Velvet, Claude VonStroke, Mark Farina, DJ Heather, Catz N Dogz, and many others.
Celebrating 22 years in 2019, Uniting Souls continues its dedication to building community & fostering connection through the creative energy of love, dancing & house music.
“UNITING SOULS has contributed to setting standards as to what the Seattle electronic music community has to offer on a local & international level. It is because of organizations like Uniting Souls that Seattle is a favorite stop among touring electronic musicians.
With e-mail, smart phones, cheap flights, declining costs in music production, and the explosion of information technology, the face of the global music community is rapidly changing, but it is collectives like Uniting Souls that are evolving right alongside to help define and retain humanness in the often impersonal world we’ve created.”
