Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Hi, welcome and thanks for checking out my page! I hope you enjoy my music - please do share it with your friends.
I am DJ Steve Bruce and I work as a successful DJ in Hong Kong.
To book me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on +852-9170-5575.
My DJ sets comprise of lots of different styles of music. Some of the genres I enjoy are Disco re-edits, Nu-Balearic, Electrofunk, Classic House, Funk, Soul, Rare-Grooves, Old-Skool Hip-Hop, 80's Boogie, Bossa-Nova, Brasilian Beats, Nu-Jazz, Chill-out, 50’s Lounge, Underground Disco, Electronica, 80's Boogie & Eclectic Downtempo.
I mostly spin at private parties & also at a couple of venues in Hong Kong including:
* ISOLA - An italian owned restaurant & bar with a lovely outdoor terrace with views of the amazing Hong Kong harbour & a fantastic outdoor garden
I have played at loads of other venues including:
* CLOCKENFLAP Music Festival (Asia's premier music festival)
* The Pawn, Wanchai. British style gastropub in an 1800's Colonial building with a lovely balcony
* Lily & Bloom - a swanky lounge done out in a New York speakeasy style
* GECKO Bar - an intimate French-owned jazz bar down a secret back alley.
* SOUTH BAY BEACH CLUB, Hong Kong (Sunday afternoon chill-out session during the summer months)
* KU DE TA, COCOON & Potato Head Beach Club in Bali (from time to time)
* Lots and lots of private parties
I'm happiest spinning outdoors, whether that be at a festival, on the beach, a yacht, on a rooftop, outdoor terrace or by a pool.
Gilles Peterson, Norman Jay, Dr Packer, Fingerman Edits, Dimitri From Paris, Danny Krivit, MAW, Greg Wilson, Andy Wilson, Digital Visions & Chris Coco to name just a few.
I started my DJ career back in the early-80s as a mobile DJ with MOLE DISCO & The TOUCHDOWN Roadshow (BOTH are STILL running today!). We used to spin at weddings, bah mitzvahs & 16th birthday parties, trying to get away with playing, the then underground jazz-funk, boogie & rare-groove music we loved, to a mainstream crowd. You can’t keep a good man down though, and I rapidly progressed to better things.
In London I ran the notorious ‘TOP OF THE POPS’ parties in Mayfair with my good friend Jason Van-Haeften and was a regular DJ at 'LES TEAROOMS DES ARTISTES', a popular post MINISTRY OF SOUND after-party that ran for many years in Clapham, south London.
I left the UK for my second backpacking trip (which I'm STILL on) in 1995 and ended up in Hong Kong, where I've now lived for the past 18 years and counting. During this time I have been a regular at many of Hong Kong’s top venues including, SOLAS, KEE Club, ARMANI/BAR, South Bay Beach Club, AQUA Spirit, YUMLA, F.I.N.D.S., CLUB 97 & TIVO as well as playing regularly around the Asia region.
I've been behind or involved with some of the most successful regular club nights in Hong Kong over the years including my long-running ‘SOULUTION’ quality House music night which ran for eight successful years, ‘The South Bay Sessions’ at South Bay Beach Club (which ran for 5 years), my mobile ‘EKLEKTA SELEKTA’ lounge night (which was featured as a show on www.ibizasonica.com for a while), ‘Hong Kong Eclectic’ at ELEMENTS bar and ‘Deano Martino’, a weekly lounge night at the now legendary 1/5 bar (in its day, voted one of the top 5 ‘best bars in the world’ by Conde Nast Traveler magazine).
I've DJ'd at private parties for RONNIE WOOD of the ROLLING STONES, BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB artists RUEBEN GONZALEZ & IBRAHIM FERRER & R&B artist CRAIG DAVID and have played alongside many international DJ’s including Norman Jay, Lisa Loud, BARGROOVES head honcho Ben Sowton, PACHA Ibiza resident Graham Sahara and FIERCE ANGELS Mark Doyle.
In Hong Kong I released my first (and only so far) commercial CD via Club 97 called ‘SOUNDS OF CLUB 97’ which spent the whole summer of its release in the HMV dance chart.
I firmly believe that MUSIC IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE...
