About

Steve Fabus, one of the first nationally recognized US DJs from the West Cost, began his career playing loft parties and the baths of late '70s San Francisco. Already the Counter Cultural Capital of America, home of the North Beach Beats and Haight-Ashbury hippie movement, it had recently become the epicenter of sexual liberation. Under the fireworks of social and political change, Steve played parties whose guest list included pre-disco Sylvester, then a member of the radical drag troupe "The Cockettes", and Harvey Milk, who would become America's first openly gay politician. San Francisco was one big, energized party then, hosted by a growing gay subculture that was throwing one gigantic, energized party for the world.

While playing the city’s infamous all-night loft party, Boiler Room in 1977, Steve was recruited to spin San Francisco's first large venue disco, The I-Beam. Trocadero Transfer opened shortly thereafter where Steve shared the booth with Bobby Viteritti. In 1980, Steve became a resident of San Francisco’s legendary EndUp. His shift was the 6 am to 2 am slot on Sunday mornings and many people credit him for starting what is still known to this day as "Church". It was here that Steve put the edge on his early morning sound with tracks like D-Train's 1982 release, "You're The One For Me".

Offered residencies at both River Club and Tracks, Steve moved to New York City in 1983. There, he also played at the wild, after-hours club, Anvil and (Studio 54 Owner) Steve Rubell's 80's mega-club, Palladium. Steve was inspired by many of the great DJs of this pinnacle period of Dance Music, from Larry Levan and David DePino at The Paradise Garage and Tracks, to Robbie Leslie at The Saint. Disco morphed into Garage and House on Steve's Sundays at Tracks, where the night would not end until Monday morning.

In 1988 Steve moved back to San Francisco to reopen Dreamland, and not long after, joined forces with promoter Gus Bean at new House club, Crew at the the former Trocadero space. Steve then moved to Los Angeles in 1990 and quickly became a resident at Axis, Factory, Asylum and Pulse, and often played at Probe and the legendary afterhours club, Does Your Mama Know?

Steve moved back to his beloved San Francisco in the late nineties where he is now a resident & guiding force of GO BANG!, and guests at Honey Soundsystem, Tubesteak Connection, Casablanca/Underground SF, and other clubs and events.
