Steve Bicknell - Addicted Podcast #16

Steve become synonymous with the sound of the seminal Lost events and the electronic dance music that it has pioneered and championed. Revered globally as one of the world's most consistent, forward-thinking and innovative nights, putting quality before quantity and innovation before imitation, Lost has defined and motivated a new generation of clubbers, dj's, artists and producers.As the main curator of LOST events, such was Steve's vision that he was first to book latterday luminaries such as Jeff Mills, Basic Channel,DJ Rolando, DJ Rush, Fumiya Tanaka, Richie Hawtin, Dan Bell, Suburban Knight, DJ Funk, Robert Hood and a host of global visionaries at LOST for their first UK outing, and for many, their first foray outside of the U.S. Uncompromising, expressive and unique, this is Steve Bicknells artistic dancefloor viewpoint. But Lost wasn't where it started for Steve, a veteran dj of the early UK dance scene he had the good fortune to participate in many events that have gone down in the history of UK club culture. Such was his early success playing his first ever set at the groundbreaking Energy parties,completing the ID Mag. World Tour in 1990 alongside a host of residencies, (swiftly followed by his first release on Paul Oakenfolds's Perfecto label), many expected him to follow a more commercial route. Indeed the door was open, but eshewing the mainstream he chose to focus on an alternative electronic sound from which his commitment hasn't wavered. A truly international DJ, Steve Bicknell has travelled the world with his unique representation playing across Europe, Japan, Australia and North America at the most respected clubs, parties and events. (Ostgut, Tresor, The Rex, Liquid Rooms, Rockets, Precious Hall, Sonar Festival, Zouk, Tribal Gathering, The End, Bugged Out; Slam, Pure, La Real, Octopus, Family Club, name but a few.
