Stephen Day

Stephen started his career at the age of 17 in the Northeast of England in 1998, where he gained a three night weekly residency in the main room of the best club in his home town of Darlington playing his passion, deep and soulful house music. After a few months he took up more offers of residencies and guest events all around the cities and towns of the Northeast.

Towards the end of 2002 Stephen started to play a lot more underground disco and eighties electro in his dj sets, as his passion and knowledge for this music started to grow. He then teamed up with disco legend Nigel Wanless (aka 'Brutus Gold') owner of 'Phreek productions'. Together they started a Studio 54 night. The night was a huge success and was booked to tour the whole of the United Kingdom. It had residencies in places such as: 'Arch 9' in Manchester, 'The Works' in Nottingham, 'The Empire' in Middlesbrough, Bath and Leeds University, Fubar in Stirling, Scotland, Oceana in London and Gatecrasher in Leeds.

Stephen still wanted to keep playing and spreading the word of his first love, House music, so he created a night called ‘RAW'. The night was held at a club in Darlington called 'Atlantic'. The club had already hosted such DJs as: Jazzy Jeff, Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Timmy Regisford, Theo Parrish and many more. The DJs that 'RAW' brought to the club were: Jay-J, DJ Spinna, Hippie Torales, Mr V, Franck Roger, Greg Wilson, Billy Davidson, Steve Butler, Neil Pierce, Halo, Jamie Thinnes and Quentin Harris. Stephen was the promoter and resident DJ for the 'RAW' nights and had the pleasure of working with all these DJs.

In 2005, Stephen packed his bags and moved to Singapore to become resident DJ at brand new super club - Ministry of Sound. He remained resident from the opening of the club to the closing of it in 2009. During this time period, he played 'Global Gathering' Festival in Malacca (Malaysia) and 'Two Days of Freedom' Festival with Tiesto, and many other international gigs around Asia.

In April 2008, Stephen released his mixed compilation album '54' on Universal records. The album went to number one in the Singapore compilation charts, and is still available in stores.

In August 2009, Stephen joined the team at the brand new 'StereoLab' club in Singapore. This club had one of the best sound systems in the world designed and built by Craig Bernabeu (sound systems by Shorty). Stephen is one of the main residents for StereoLab and has played alongside DJs such as: Kenny Dope, Boy George, Green Velvet, Miss Nine, Norman Doray, Mark Doyle, Gina Star, The Freemasons, Soul Avengers, Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Tony Humphries, Simon Baker, Derrick Carter, Tiger Stripes, AudioJack, Nicholas Matar, Scarlet Etienne, Spencer Parker, Burnski and more. In that same year, Stephen joined The Fierce Angel DJ team to represent them in Asia. This UK based label was formed by legend Mark Doyle.

Stephen started producing his own music at the beginning of 2009 and now has releases on UK-based label ‘City West Records’ and Singapore label ‘Rawjak’. He also has upcoming releases on Croatian label ‘Acilectro’ and ‘Acilectro Blue’, Singapore label ‘Eclesia Records’ and UK label ‘Development Music’.

Stephen's latest release on renowned Irish DJ/Producer Scope's (Ric Mclleland) label 'Seven Music', which is a 4 track EP that includes a remix by Scope himself, reached number 14 on the Deep house chart on Traxsource.

Stephen is currently resident at new super club Avalon in Singapore, together with Seng Wei, the head Honcho of Eclesia Records. Simultaneously, he also has a monthly disco night at KU DE TA (SG). He is still working on his productions during his spare time and has just signed a new remix to Chicago label 'Large' records.
