Profile description of Steve Optix:

I’ve been collecting and playing vinyl for over twenty years and I’ve a huge passion for great music across genres, choosing often to wander off the beaten track in my search for sounds anew, looking to give listeners and patrons an experience they’ll remember. I stay away from commercial – so many have that covered – but aim for accessible and feel good.

Balearic best sums up my overall vibe – mainly because it’s an all-encompassing bracket that takes the best of warm feelings and good moods across genres, managing a sound to relax, mellow and to paint smiles on faces. Coupled with this I spin disco, funk, soul and boogie edits, keeping the feels and tempo to a slow build, taking a night up if required, adding house beats, maybe some afro beat and electro depending on where the listeners want to go.

I play out regularly, I think about thirty gigs in the last year, money is not my motivator but the opportunity to play great sounds to appreciative likeminded people and clientele. This year has been a great year for me with events under giant tepees on beaches, to festivals, to radio, to regular guests spots as well as promoting my own nights Vinyl Lab and Parents Evening.

Please if you get a chance have a listen to some of my sounds on Mixcloud and if you think I may fit in with your vibe I’d love to come over and do a couple of hours for you, (Or longer if required, I often play up to 4 or 5 hours).
