STEVE PORTER (bedrock, fade, balance, growroom)

abbasso summer series, part five

Riding high from the success of his latest productions "Nordica" on Fade Records and "Deported " on Bedrock, Steve's indelible and unique sound is spreading like wildfire. Something of a child prodigy from a famous father, but his first love & choice was always music. Discovering electronic sounds at 16 years old, Steve dove deeply into it all. Along with his mother, he loaded on decks and studio gear to start learning the art of DJing and productions. A local record shop in his hometown of Amherst, MA got him even closer to his goal of music creation. When some tracks fell into Chris Fortier's hands, it really started moving. Support quickly followed from more heroes, Sasha & John Digweed, with the release of "Sensor" and "Mindless" in 1999.

Many labels from around the globe took notice of Steve's talent and Steve was inundated with remix offers. He would go on to create some of the classic remixes of 2000 and 2001 including "Two Right Wrongans", "Inner Laugh" and "Marscarter". Steve has now made a huge mark with his techno-edged house productions. His studio work was only one facet of Steve's two

prong attack. His DJing is where he really rocks the funky beats and makes some noise. His new move to New York City from Boston has only put more fuel to the fire by quickly putting a New York residency in his belt at superclub Centro-Fly. Along with dates across the country and tours with Sasha and Chris Fortier, Steve is in demand from Taipei to Tampa. With over 20 remixes to his credit, his Agent 001 project busting down doors, collaborations with Quivver and Jimmy Van M and new singles coming on Fade Records, Little Mountain and Chug. His debut artist LP is eminent and ready to rock.

This summer will finally see the release of Steve's remix of Amber "Anyways" on Bedrock. As well a remix for Iio "Smooth", forthcoming on Made Records. Steve's tracks with John Graham entitled "3 Days on 35th/2 Days on Landsdowne" will be seeing a release this summer as well on Quivver's own Boz Boz label.

Steve's "Agent 001" projects, with close pal Eli Wilkie, are already getting huge support from Pete Tong, Lee Burridge, Sander Kleinenberg, and the likes. Look for the Agent 001 tracks to be released on Opek, Mother Tongue, Reversible, POD, and Chug Records in the next few months.

"Vodka Cranberries" is a new Steve Porter single coming out on Nu Republic Records of the UK with a Sean Cusick remix. Rambient "Karma", a remix collaboration with Jimmy Van M featured on Nick Warren's new G.U. album will be released later this year on a label TBA. "Definite Form", signed by Sander Kleinenberg for his new label called Little Mountain. The track will

also be included on Sander's upcoming mix album.

"Oyster Crackers/Alphabeat Soup", a collaborative effort between Steve and inspirational friend Chris Reavey will be seeing a release on Fade Records soon. For more info vist Chris' homepage at www.chrisreavey.com. Source of Gravity records will be releasing Steve's collaboration with Aaryn Blain entitled "Surrounding Darkness/Thunkin Brutha" this summer. See
