Made Event presents Steve Bug with Adultnapper photo gallery
It's a good thing NYC is en route to Detroit, since we're lucky enough to get the occasional layovers from some stellar talent before DEMF. This Friday, May 25th, one of the scene's best and most respected minimal dance connoisseur's Steve Bug continues the buzz around his stellar WMC appearances for a special gig at Cielo with NYC's own rising star Adultnapper.
With over 16 years of experience, Steve Bug is truly one of the unsung leaders and innovators of the German electronic music scene. With three different labels under his helm, Bug is able to cross the bridges between house & techno with his deep house oriented Dessous and the much-respected Poker Flat Recordings, the number one source for stripped down futuristic sounds with amazing musical diversity. On his third label Audiomatique, founded as a playground for modern styles of techno and house, Bug scored a massive club hit with breakthrough Danish producer Anders Trentemøller. This year, Belgium’s number one techno label Music Man and Belgium’s number one techno club Fuse team up with Fuse resident DJ Bug to release the next installment of their highly-acclaimed series ‘FUSE PRESENTS STEVE BUG’. Steve Bug continues playing with seductive and laidback funk, dirty retro bass lines and random bleeps, incorporating techno, electro and basic funk into bare house grooves creating moody minimal and seductive music for the dancefloor.
After the highly acclaimed previous mixes in the Fuse presents series by Dave Clarke, DJ Hell, Technasia and Joris Voorn, Belgium’s number one techno label Music Man and Belgium’s number one techno club Fuse team up for a new episode. This time the honour goes to Steve Bug, international resident at Fuse and one of the few true stars in the minimal scene. As the head of the much respected Poker Flat label, Steve Bug is one of the founding fathers of this scene, together with people like Michael Mayer and Richie Hawtin.
Championed by many, not only because of his brilliant and original productions, but even more because of his highly memorable DJ-sets, Steve Bug was the right man to mix the new Fuse presents CD. As he did on his two previous Bugnology mixes for the Poker Flat label, he edited all tracks with Ableton Live software for the ultimate continuous mix experience. Combining sought after classics from Johnny Dangerous or Rhythim Is Rhythim with future anthems by Pier Bucci, Move D and Efdemin next to brand new Poker Flat gems from Steve Bug himself and long time buddy Guido Schneider, this mix really has it all.
