MV001 Steve Ward


STEVE WARD is a Melbourne based producer, DJ and label owner that has a long list of career highlights, including several collaborations with UK techno legend Carl Cox, USA acid house pioneer DJ Pierre and rock and roll hall of fame artist Nile Rodgers.

Steve’s sound has evolved into a blend of raw analogue electronica and tough house grooves, coupled with the energy of techno and the euphoria of Detroit.

His sound is definitely a unique take on the modern world of electronic music.

Steve’s unpredictable DJ and live sets have given him the opportunity to perform all around the world, fusing everything from disco, house, techno and electronica.

After a long hiatus, Steve has started to release music again with an intricate remix of funk legend Sola Rosa’s The Almighty Dollar. His remake of DJ HMC’s techno anthem LSD hit the #1 most sold vinyl this year globally.

With a huge amount of music soon to be released, Steve is excited for this new phase in his career.
