French DJ and producer Strip Steve's energized rhythms walk the line between club and hip-hop. Growing up in Bordeaux as Théo Pozoga and cutting his teeth on sounds from Daft Punk to Yo!
MTV Raps, Steve started mixing at age 14, soon providing the soundtrack for parties with his friends. By 2007 he made his recorded debut with the "Skatin'" single for Disque Premier, and a year later he moved to Berlin, where he kept a busy schedule doing remixes for Shadow Dancer, Van She, and Outlander, as well as releasing the EP Skip School for his new musical home, Boys Noize. Steve offered the EP Delta Disco in 2009, which blended vintage U.S. house music stylings with his French sensibilities, and played around Japan, Australia, and Europe with the Boys Noize Power Tour. Artists like German techno minimalist Ian Pooley and French club DJ Das Glow contributed to remix versions of Delta Disco in 2010, and a year later, Steve and Das Glow combined forces on a split EP. Steve's full-length debut, Micro Mega, arrived July 2012, featuring guest appearances from Das Glow, U.S. house veteran Robert Owens, and playful Los Angeles dream popsters Puro Instinct. ~ Chrysta Cherrie, Rovi
