It’s mid-December and most of us in the Northern Hemisphere are feeling the cold – what better than a hot summery mix from a hot L.A. DJ to get the blood pumping!

When I first came across one of DJ eur-O-steve’s mixes, I was instantly hooked. They have such a great energy, and are rammed with such fabulous pop vocals, I knew I had to get him to do a Something For The Weekend.

But there’s a lot more to eur-O-steve… Raised in rural Wales in the United Kingdom he moved to L.A. in 1999 to pursue both a technical and DJ career. He was soon using his infectious energy to lure the crowd onto the dance floor and have fun all night long.

His unique approach to spinning was influenced by classic nightlife in UK clubs such as Cream, Ministry of Sound, and Gatecrasher, and he honed his international mix grooves through frequent trips to Ibiza, Barcelona, Berlin, and Montreal.

His signature musical style and eclectic tastes includes vocal dance remixes, EDM, flashbacks, vocal house, electronic and trance genres with a special European club flavour, which has resulted in a brilliantly diverse following of dancers and drinkers.

Based in L.A., DJ eur-O-steve spins his bump and grind tunes and presents a unique global mix to popular hits for well- known gay venues like Micky’s, The London and Bullet Bar on a weekly basis. He is also often hired for special events like Hot Rod and Folsom. 

That’s quite enough from me, here’s the man himself with a few words on why he chose this mix for us!

DJ eur-O-steve:

“Nothing says summer to me like an outdoor patio dance floor packed with sweaty skimpy speedo’d go go’s! I love seeing dancers raised glasses full of fresh mojitos and spiked lemonades on another clear crazy hot Sunday afternoon in West Hollywood.  This is my favourite scene, I love these guys!

This mix is taken from one of those Sundays this summer from the iconic Micky’s in West Hollywood. The weekend was supposed to wind down, but here I just kept winding it up! I brought fun, crisp, clear, talented vocals with a strong high-energy beat to the late afternoon.

I made a truly global mix, with artists and re-mixers from countries I love. I added some flashbacks to twist it up – enjoy!”
