Influential DJs Steve Bug and Eddie Richards teamed up this past summer for an Othersound event in Los Angeles. British DJ Richards has been active in the dance scene since the 1980s and is sometimes referred to as the "godfather of house." At times going under the monikers Evil Eddie, Jolly Roger, and Kode, Richards became a prominent mover-and-shaker thanks to a residency at Camden Palace in London. He went on to perform at legendary events at Clink Street, Heaven, and Manchester's Hacienda. "Acid Man," released in 1988 under his Jolly Roger alias, reached number 23 in the UK charts and has become a club classic. He has released work via End Recordings, Hypervinyl, Matter/Form, SoCo Audio, Northern Lights, LHB, and through his own labels Lunar Tunes, dy-na-mix and Storm. He spins regularly at London clubs Wiggle and Fabric.
Germany's Steve Bug was influenced early on by acid house and techno, eventually going on to create his own unique hybrid of deep house, acid, and minimal techno. Bug founded his own label, Raw Elements, attracting an eager fanbase through the release of his debut LP Volksworld. In the late '90s his sound moved into darker, funker territory with the establishment of the Poker Flat Recordings label and the release of his classic "Loverboy." His sound continued to evolve with the formation of two new labels, Dessous and Audiomatique. His reputation as a dependably excellent DJ has flourished thanks to hugely popular gigs in Paris, Amsterdam, London, Tokyo, Berlin, and at Miami's Winter Music Conference.
