Wed, 16 Oct 2013 / Post a commentIts ten years since both Tom Ellis and Leif released their first ever vinyl record Mindtours 06, which also featured label boss Steevio. This marked the beginning of Tom and Leifs steadily growing reputation on the international underground house and techno scene, with both artists releasing countless records and tracks on many important labels.
Mindtours 15 celebrates the 10th anniversary of that widely loved early work, whilst clearly showcasing each artistâ€™s progress since those days.

Modular techno Vol 2 - Steevio
Volume 2 in the series is 4 tracks of live improvised analogue music created entirely in real time on a eurorack modular synthesizer + Moog Voyager. The tracks are extracted directly from the practice sessions for Steevio's live jams at the Freerotation Electronic Music Festival which he and partner Suzybee organise.
All sequencing and sound creation is analogue, live and unplanned.

|I have been involved in electronic music since 1982 when I managed the Sidewalk electro/breakdance club in Newcastle and performed in the Electrofunk group Acid. In 1984 i switched to guitar in the band Dead Flowers, which by 1992 was very influnced by the band members love of techno, with a hypnotic blend of drums, guitars,synths and voice.|
I began releasing techno in 1994 under various aliases culminating in the formation of the Mindtours label with partner Suzybee in 2000, which is still the outlet for my productions of deep funky techno and broken beats.
Mindtours was put on hold in 2008 while Suzybee and I developed the electronic music festival Freerotation.
I now work totally live, jamming on my modular synth in both studio productions and live audio-visual performances, working..
