As a small boy Steve was introduced to the wonders and delights of the Athen’s club culture and underworld in which his father moved. Deeply enthused by all of this and, as it emerged, incredibly talented, Steve quickly honed his turntablism skills, fusing hip-hop, breakbeats and 70’s classics until he won himself his first club residency in Stockholm. Under-age (16) and out way past his bedtime, Steve was earning a not-so-honest crust to support his family alone. Whatever, he was seriously rocking that club week in week out!
Steve’s first ventures into the studio were with best buddy Sebastian, at Seb’s father’s place but it was a further three years before the mighty “Freshly Squeezed” and “Echo Vibes” were created and released on Joia Records, Drawing heavily on influences such as Daft Punk’s “Homework LP”, Steve was finding new favour with the house music fraternity. Indeed “Echo Vibes”, something of a hit at the time, was remixed by Eric Prydz, with whom Steve has remained close ever since. Today Steve, Sebastian , Eric and Axwell are known collectively as the Swedish House Mafia â?? a name to watch out for!
And so to Size Records: Steve’s baby; the epitome of everything that Steve stands for; the outlet for Steve’s voluminous work; and the vehicle for Steve’s determination and ambition. Conceived in 2002 and operational by 2003, Size Records has truly taken the world by storm. Garnering support from house music’s biggest superstars (Erick Morillo @ Ibiza, DJ Dero @ South America, Danny Tenaglia @ USA, Juan Bailey @ Mexico, Dave Armstrong @ Europe), the label has got off to a rollicking start. and remix requests from just about everybody. And to date, the label is just seven releases deep.
Steve Angello is an inspiration. He is a remarkable talent and a consummate professional. His music is borne of real life and real passion. This is just the beginning for Steve, he has just turned 21 years of age.
