DJ Steven

DJ Steven started DJ-ing professionally in 1990. He got the bug of turntablism from the early stars of hip-hop with legends like Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa. His love for hip-hop took him to the finals of the first Bulgarian DMC championship in 93 where he won the title together with his team Tall, Fat & Small. In 94 they took part in the World finals at the Ministry of Sound, London. The same year DJ Steven was voted best DJ in Bulgaria.

With the rise of house and techno DJ Steven got more and more interested in the even flow of the kick drum. All this plus the pure sound energy of German legends Krafwerk made him spin lots of house & techno music in his sets. But his final turning point came with the release of Sven Vath’s seminal tracks L’Esperanza, Accident In Paradise and Harlequin: The Beauty and The Beast. In 1997 DJ Steven and a group of friends and DJ’s started promoting parties with electronic music under the name of Metropolis.
