Steele Bonus

 
Currently based in Amsterdam, Steele Bonus is a music lover, DJ and record collector with a passion for uncovering oddball sounds. In his hometown of Sydney, he was immersed in the DIY party scene for over a decade, organising events and DJing in clubs, bars and warehouses. The most notable stretch as a resident at the 6 year running High Spirits party. Over the years he has slowly earned a reputation for creating mixes that never fail to impress, in 2014 his series Odd Waves evolved into the physical form of a small publication and mix CD which sold out at stores around the globe. In early 2017 he compiled ‘Oz Waves’ for reissue label Efficient Space. The collection pieced together Australian D.I.Y. music from unreleased archives and his collection of 80s tape cassettes. These days you can find him playing to gatherings of music freaks all around the globe as well as the odd show on Red Light Radio. When djing he is known for always keeping an open minded approach, playing across the board and avoiding trends and pigeon-holing. In any one of his sets you might hear psychedelic rock, industrial funk, deep disco, african percussion, hypnotic house, raw techno, lo-fi soul and minimal synth, all merged together from records old and new, classic and obscure.
