U Tunel nam stiže Steve Bug: Doznat ćemo zašto ga nazivaju ‘gentlemanom techna’
U Tunelu 19. listopada gostuje jedan od doajena njemačke i svjetske techno i house glazbene scene; producent, DJ, vlasnik glasovitog labela Poker Flat i veliki zaljubljenik u Hrvatsku – Steve Bug.
Neumoljiva predanost u kvaliteti svega čime se već puna dva desetljeća bavi, učinila ga je jednim od najcjenjenijih umjetnika na sceni elektroničke glazbe. Kao artist osobno ili kao kustos i selektor u svojim labelima Poker Flat, Audiomatique, Dessous Recor- dings, Traffic Signs i Raw Elements, značajno je doprinio u stvaranju europske house i techno scene kakvu poznajemo danas.
Referirajući se na njegovu pouzdanost, osjećaj odgovornosti, energičnost, profesionalizam, ali i istančan smisao za humor, Resident Advisor ga je svojedobno nazvao ‘gentlemanom techna’.
Jako je cijenjen u Hrvatskoj gdje je prvi put svirao još prije 20 godina, ali gostovanje u Tunelu bit će njegov premijerni nastup u Šibeniku.
Majstor je za napraviti odličnu atmosferu u klubovima diljem svijeta i poznat po tome da glazbu bira tek kad stane za pult.
‘Pravi DJ treba imati osjećaja za ono što pokreće ljude i za pultom moći gotovo organski razmjenjivati pokrete zajedno s publikom. To je nešto što ne možeš naučiti nego jednostavno trebaš imati u sebi’, kazao je nedavno u Zagrebu pred svoj krcati nastup za Tanzen Kollektiv.
Po mnogima, bio je to možda i najbolji party inače sjajne prošle Tanzen sezone, a sličnu atmosferu očekujemo 19. listopada i u Tunelu jer za ovaj party tražit će se sigurno karta više.

Poker Flat: Poker Flat Recordings
Steve Bug is one of electronic music’s true originals. His relentless commitment to quality – both in his own work and in the many producers he has championed – has made him one of the world’s most revered artists and curators, and along with his labels Poker Flat, Audiomatique, Dessous Recor- dings, Traffic Signs or Raw Elements has made a sizeable contribution to building the European house and techno scene as we know it.
A dedicated, energetic and constantly innovative talent, Resident Advisor once called Steve Bug the “gentleman of techno” referring to his sense of duty and dependability as one of the world’s most renowned DJs and producers.
That same professionalism that means he’s hardly ever missed a DJ gig is evident in his work as a composer, producer and owner of the Poker Flat Recordings label: a label whose influ- ence on house and techno cannot be overstated. Every step he takes is well considered, but always tempered with his own fine sense of humour and innate love for his craft.
Having grown up in Germany’s techno and acid-house hey- day, Steve Bug’s love for a perfect groove is as apparent now as it was back then. His DJ skills and a keen, innovative ear led him not down the typical path of the early nineties trance and harder dance scene, but instead towards a fresher, hybrid sound–merging stripped deep house, tweaked out acid and more minimal forms of techno and electronic music.
Although dedicated to his own labels – first and foremost the aforementioned Poker Flat – Steve’s talents have naturally attracted the attention of other imprints. Bedrock, Knee Deep In Sound, Minus, Cocoon, Ovum, Kompakt and Defected are just some of the labels that have championed original tracks and remixes that are rightly regarded as timeless classics.
Steve is also one of the few electronic artists capable of put- ting out a ‘proper’ album. Having released no fewer than six full length LPs over the last two decades, his latest Paradise Sold alongside Langenberg – a full ten-track album of exquisi- tely crafted house music on Poker Flat – was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, and described as “elegantly euphoric” by Mixmag.
Steve continues to tour relentlessly, maintaining a loyal around the world and more than two decades into his storied career, Steve Bug still remains a singularly talented artist. Long may his reign continue.
