Ste Roberts, hails from Leeds, and has been a die hard lover of electronic music for nearly 20 years.  He's funny, witty and loving life right now.Here he talks about getting out of London to hang in Woolacombe, North Devon, for a bit of rest bite, and reflects on where his love of music all began.  We talk weekend pilgrimages on the National Express to Fabric London, music education, inspirational artists and his passion for vinyl.  He also shares his motivation and love of making and getting lost in music.  We talk about his 13 year old record label Hypercolour, which he co-owns with Alex Jones and Jamie Russell, including some of the parties they have hosted across the globe.  He gives some straightforward advice to other DJ's looking to get noticed by record labels.All that plus raving in Berlin, daily routines to keep producing quality records, keeping his Account Management job selling shampoo to stay grounded whilst continuing to do what he loves.  As an added bonus for anyone looking for more than the big commercial gigs, he also shares the best and most intimate venues that are up and coming on the London music scene.Straight talking Ste has some great past stories to share, a fountain of musical knowledge and is a genuinely all round nice guy.  Thanks Ste, and thank you Gaz for bundling him into your BMW so we could chat!  To connect with Ste find him on Instagram @ste_robertsA bit about me …. Fiona White I love playing chilled, deep, and tech house music as well as listening and sharing stories that inspire me.   Box of Frogs (my very own Frogcast) is my way of doing that, whilst also connecting with people who, like me, enjoy smiling more through life.
