The connoisseur of quality underground dancefloor music, Steve Bug is the next in line to perform an epic eight-hour set for the A Night With… series. Considered as a tech-house master and one of the few gems of the innovative German electronic house scene, he is the perfect candidate to follow in the footsteps of Michael Mayer, Matt John and Cassy.
As a DJ, producer and head of the family of record labels Poker Flat, Dessous and Audiomatique, Steve Bug has a career that spans two decades and countries all over the globe. His extensive discography reveals his enthusiasm for open-minded techno as much as his DJ sets. His label operation is split into three, with Poker Flat concentrating on a tight cluster of tech house artists, Dessous Recordings concentrating on house-orientated material, and his most recent baby Audiomatique looks outside the Poker Flat family for new production talent. It makes sense then, that his sets sit somewhere in between the varied styles of his 3 labels, taking pride in being able to move the room seamlessly from one genre to the other. Bug plays with seductive and laid-back funk, dirty retro basslines and random bleeps, incorporating techno electro and basic funk into bare house grooves creating moody minimal and seductive music.
Steve Bug has collaborated with several world-class producers and DJ’s including Richie Hawtin, Josh Wink and Matthias Tanzmann. Last year he released his album, ‘Collaboratory’ on Poker Flat, a full length artist album collaborating with Cle, Paris the Black Fu (one half of the Detroit Grand Pubahs), Cassy, Virginia, Simon Flower, Donnacha Costello and Gigi, resulting in a smooth mix of electro-house tracks infused with deep, pulsating bass, silky vocals, sirens and bells. More recently Bug’s unshakably individual imprint, Poker Flat reaches its one hundred and eleventh release with a concise yet masterfully produced two tracker from the man himself. ‘Flight 111′ takes in the usual Steve Bug ethos that less is more, spawning two dark and enveloping house tracks that build from unassuming positions into club killers. Expect more of this ethos and mind control on 14th August as Bug takes the reins of A Night With…
Steve Bug will lead us into the fourth ‘A Night With…’ – proven to be a truly unique series of events with a rare extended performance demonstrating his flair and diversity. A Night With… chooses one special artist to perform for the entire evening, presenting their own personal musical journey from start to finish to a small and intimate crowd. A simple concept that is focused purely on enjoyment, it strips everything back to the bones to create an extremely special occasion for all those in attendance.
