A rather exciting collaborative effort has emerged from Melbourne’s thriving electronic music scene. Steve Stevens is the new monicker for two Australian heavyweights: Jamie Stevens, founding member of Australia’s innovative globe-trotting live act Infusion and Steve Ward, Chameleon Recordings’ mastermind and rising star of the techno world. “When we get together in the studio, we just understand each other” explains Ward. “We’re on the same wavelength but at the same time we’d bring something to the table that neither of us would have done alone. We’re workaholics and just have so much energy to throw into production and playing this stuff to people so to collaborate just seemed natural.” Their love of bouncing, energetic percussive techno, warm house vibes and a desire to push their own limits of production spurred the idea of the collaboration.
