Stephen Day (UK) – FRI 21st SEPT 2013
Stephen started his career at 17 years old in the north east of England in 1998, where he gained a three night weekly residency in the main room of the best club in his home town of Darlington playing his passion, deep and soulful house music. After a few months he took up more offers of residencies and guest events all around the cities and towns of the north east.
Towards the end of 2002 stephen started to play a lot more underground disco and eighties electro in his dj sets, as his passion and knowledge for this music started to grow. He then teamed up with disco legend Nigel Wanless (aka ‘Brutus Gold’) owner of ‘Phreek productions’. Together they started a Studio 54 night. The night was a huge success and was booked to tour the whole of the United Kingdom. It had residencies in places such as; ‘Arch 9′ in Manchester, ‘The Works’ in Nottingham, ‘The Empire’ in Middlesbrough, Bath and Leeds university, Fubar in Stirling, Scotland, Oceana in London and Gatecrasher in Leeds.
Stephen still wanted to keep playing and spreading the word of his first love, house music. So he created a night called ‘RAW’. The night was held at a club in Darlington called ‘Atlantic’. The club had already hosted such dj’s as; Jazzy Jeff, Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Timmy Regisford, Theo Parrish and many more. The dj’s that ‘RAW’ brought to the club were; Jay-j, Dj spinna, Hippie Torales, Mr V, Franck Roger, Greg Wilson, Billy Davidson, Steve butler, Neil Pierce, Halo, Jamie Thinnes and quentin harris. Stephen was the promoter and resident dj for the ‘RAW’ nights and had the pleasure of working with all these dj’s.
