Bio: Steve AKA Bkackwax first got the music bug around 1983 in a time when Hip Hop and its culture was just coming to the shores of the UK, The days when party’s where on the “block” or a house or any space you could set up a sound system. It was at a party like this when he first heard the legendary DJ Harvey playing music on two turntables and he realized this is what he wanted to do.

So he set about buying his first few records which led him to soon discover early House music imports on Labels like Trax records from Chicago. He fast fell in love with this fresh new sound and set about playing them at every party or gathering he could.

Also at this time Soul Funk and rare groove styles where being played in the clubs so as soon as he could get into the club (this was hard at times due to his age) This soul music also played a huge part in his musical education.

It wasn’t too long before he was holding down a residency at one of the local clubs on a Monday night. This soon became the buisiest night of their week!

Steve soon realized he was able to play both these styles with great ease hence making him a very in demand DJ working both “circuits”
It wasn’t long before he was working in Local records stores supplying DJ’s with all the hot tunes he was playing in the clubs and party’s.

This lead to playing at a big venue for a party called Grand Central where he was asked to play both rooms of this party to a sell out crowd of 3000 dancers. The record shop work continued for many years until the opportunity arose to run his “own” store Blackwax Records. The DJ Blackwax was then born Steve “Blackwax” continues to spin both styles to this day although now he plays further afield at venues in New York City, London, France & Thailand. Steve also writes articles for several printed and online Magazines, which include keep on magazine and

Steve now plays many styles of music but all with one thing in common the music has a certain soul a certain feeling and is always played from the heart.
