2011 has already been a big year for Brighton based producer Steve Mac. The UK house hero kicked off the year with the release of his artist album “Roots” on Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records. A collection of work that saw him, as the name suggests, return to the sound of his earliest work. Raw, powerful, 4/4 house music. The album instantly picked up support from key industry figures and found Steve thrust back into the limelight. Tracks such as “Moosique”, “Hear That” and “Give It To Me” have become staple inclusions in the sets of the biggest names.
Steve’s current remix of Deepgroove & Thieve’s “Tell You Why” is rapidly climbing the download charts and now he prepares to drop his latest collection of work, as he makes his debut right here, on Snatch! Steve’s talent for creating classic beats and building grooves has been honed over many years, working with many of the most legendary names in the business. His well known appreciation of the great Todd Terry’s early work can be heard in the opening cut, “Tonight.” Track two, “It’s Ok” is very much a polar opposite. Gone are the sounds of Chicago to be replaced by a far darker sound. A slant perhaps to NYC, this pulsating monster with its powerful string riff is definitely one for the darker rooms.
Steve’s final original is a super effective tool for the summer floors. “Sold My Soul” with its staccato horn riff, popping baseline and recognisable breaks is sure to become a favourite for many. Adding a tougher, twisted and more driving slant to the track are M.in & Jonas Fahz.
