There are DJs that are instantly recognisable because of their standing in the scene, their visibility on social media or the wacky things they do, and then there are equally talented, immensely passionate people who prefer to work off the radar, people like Steve Parry.
A working DJ since the age of 15, Steve has amassed a wealth of musical knowledge and honed some serious DJ skills over his time working as manager of the world famous 3 Beat records, a 3 year residency at Cream in Liverpool and a host of headlining gigs across the globe. As a radio host, his Red Zone show ran for 10 years on Juice FM featuring the hottest new music and regular world class DJ guests. His new show on Frisky radio continues in that vein delivering the best new music around.
As a promoter Steve has had much success. Firstly with his legendary ‘Alderaan’ nights which ran from '97 - 2001 in a room above the infamous Lemon Lounge helped to shape the very scene Liverpool has become known for. Steves attention to detail and crowd focused guest selections has built a solid and lasting reputation in his hometown and far beyond. His new project - Luna is shaping up to be just as influential and acts as a welcome antithesis to a scene in the stranglehold of corporate greed.
These days Steve is mostly found working on his company - SMP3 Music Management. where he sources music for a diverse range of DJs including Sasha, Just Be, Sander Klienenberg and many others. SMP3 also has a promo mail out service which regularly features tracks from labels as far ranging as Bedrock, Sudbeat, mircoCastle and Sprout. Steve has also turned his hand to acting as an A&R Consultant to a number of high profile labels alongside working on his own record label with Dave Seaman called Selador.
A lifelong ambition having been involved with music for so long, the labels primary aim is to showcase the musical diversity of both Steve and Dave, and its success so far is mainly down to their passion and utter devotion to quality over quantity.
Production is also on Steves mind these days with several remixes out during 2014 and a new EP and further remixes due in 2015. A music fan at heart, he is most happy immersed in his number one passion.
