PERHAPS more than any other DJ, Steve’s name and sound is synonymous with Ibiza.

He first played on the White Isle back in 1994, and has performed hundreds of times since then, holding residencies at Space, Sankeys, Es Paradis, Café Mambo, Pacha and more.

Picking out records for this list really made me a bit emotional, as they brought back so many memories. We really need to dance again soon! These are probably my most played 31, but I could have easily done a top 50 or 100!.”

Steve makes his debut on Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters imprint this week with his brand new single, ‘Don’t Ask’ alongside a special remix from Jansons.

‘Don’t Ask’ is a no-nonsense, straight-up, dance floor focused rhythm which offers hooky vocal stabs alongside a bubbling bassline, organic drum grooves, enticing low end and mesmerising synths. Jansons delivers a housier take on the original offering loosely rolling, natural drum sounds smoothly running alongside filtered loops of the original strings, chords and vocal.

Here are the 31 gems from the White Isle that Steve has selected exclusively for us. What a playlist this is, featuring tracks from Groove Armada, Layo & Bushwacka!, Chicken Lips, Tori Amos, Armand van Helden, Oxia, Audiojack, Stardust, Energy 52, Pete Heller, DJ Rolando and many more.
