Steve Bicknell

Steve Bick­nell has been at the fore­front of the UK’s ever-grow­ing elec­tron­ic music scene since its infan­cy. His career, span­ning over 25+ years, has seen Steve grow from his ear­ly begin­nings as a young pro­mot­er and res­i­dent DJ to one of the UK’s most estab­lished, accom­plished and respect­ed tech­no artists cred­it­ed by many as a true pioneer. 

After earn­ing his stripes with res­i­den­cies at some of the UK’s most influ­en­tial events such as Ener­gy (Orbital raves), ID Magazine’s 1990 World Tour, The Wag Club, Solaris, The Brain, and The Zap Steve would go onto launch his own night LOST along­side Sheree Rashit. Since its induc­tion to the present day LOST has stood as one of the UK’s most inno­v­a­tive and scene-defin­ing events mark­ing the debut per­for­mances from some of dance music’s most uncom­pro­mis­ing and inven­tive cre­ators. Aside from his huge suc­cess as a pro­mot­er Steve also pro­duced under the name LOST between the years 1990 – 1992. He would then launch his own label Cos­mic Records, also co-run with Rashit, and a new musi­cal direc­tion was found. From the first label three more imprints fol­lowed; LOST Record­ings that focused sole­ly on the sounds of LOST’s dance­floor, Club­tracks, spe­cial­is­ing in more Chica­go house-sound­ing pro­duc­tions, and ID(entity) cre­at­ed to release hid­den alias­es’ of well-estab­lished artists affil­i­at­ed with the Cos­mic label and LOST nights.

When it comes to Steve Bick­nel­l’s pro­duc­tions it’s no doubt he embod­ies the true essence of straight to the point, no-non­sense tech­no char­ac­ter­is­tics he flu­id­ly trans­lates into his DJ sets. Reflect­ing on Steve’s ear­li­est work it is clear after step­ping back from pro­duc­ing in the mid 2000’s he was still able to main­tain the same relent­less ener­gy and curios­i­ty yet hon­ing and evolv­ing it into some­thing fresh and cur­rent upon his return in 2013. Equipped with neo­teric ideas, in 2016 Steve launched his lat­est imprint 6dimensions. The label has played host to both his own and oth­er influ­en­tial artists pro­duc­tions. He describes the imprint as being an explo­ration into bal­ance and imbal­ance of the human mind’s nat­ur­al make-up of love, fear, joy, hatred, bore­dom and sexuality”. 

Fur­ther­more, in 2017 the tech­no super­group LSD was formed along­side friends Luke Slater and David Sum­n­er. Their debut release, Process”, land­ed on Ostgut Ton which they described in their own words as lyser­gic machine music’. Since then the trio has per­formed reg­u­lar­ly with notable shows at the likes of ADE, Berghain and Dek­man­tel Fes­ti­val to name a few. 2019 sees the trio return­ing with new releas­es and even more shows. 

With a com­pelling selec­tion of new music com­ing out over the course of 2019 and his return to the road, Steve seems to be more rel­e­vant than ever before. With his sec­ond to none expe­ri­ence in pro­mot­ing events, per­form­ing as a DJ to pro­duc­ing in the stu­dio alone or with friends on top of his mis­sion to con­tin­ue to cre­ate, explore and exper­i­ment its look­ing like Steve Bick­nell is unstoppable.
