Biography of Steel Grooves
Real name / Rex Bruton
I began DJing in 1996 when I was 15 years old. I came in contact with the Rave scene and quickly got involved with planning, promoting, and performing at shows all over Texas. For over a decade I have been focused on pushing the Techno sound in Austin and all around Texas.
My mission as a DJ is too provide a futuristic experience for those seeking a deeper rhythm to move to. Glamour and popularity mean nothing to me. I look for the chance to step aside from the traditional mainstream hype, and provide a groove that is from beyond ones imagination.
Steel Grooves is the title that simply defines my music style. Steel = Hard but smooth, Grooves = music that is made for a dancefloor. It is not a DJ name but a description of my music selections. My music production is inspired by the same vision. Intense rhythms made to be manipulated by a DJ.
I released my first dance track in 2008 on Keep On Techno Records (Croatia) but I have been playing my own music and some customized re edits in my DJ sets for years. My focus as a producer is to create groove tools to fit in my DJ sets.
Steel Grooves lives in the dark of the Austin Underground where dance music is commonly misunderstood. A lot of DJs seek attention to themselves through the music they play. I guide your attention to the music. What sets me apart from other DJs is my vision.
I am not a DJ but I am an audio mechanic that uses techno to tell my story on a dancefloor. If you are not open minded to new music then you should get lost. I speak these words directly to express my passion for this music. At the end of the day I prefer to shut up and let the music do the talking...
