My name is Blackwax or just plain Steve Reed and I have had the pleasure of playing music to people as a DJ for over 30 years now.
for most of my adult life I worked in record shops and then had the pleasure of running a shop that some friends started, this is how the name Blackwax came into being (Blackwax Records.) I have listened and collected a wide range of music, including soul, house, disco, hip-hop and more; I still incorporate many of these styles into my DJ sets and productions.
As a producer I released tracks with artists and labels including Tone Control Music, Pirahnahead, Poji Records, Jazzloungerz, Canvas, SOL, Soul Free, A Deeper Groove, Soulfunktion and Tony Humphries Tony Records.
Varying my styles, I always try to evolve and keep the sound fresh and current whilst remaining influenced by my musical past.
I hold residencies at Bump N Hustle in Bournemouth and the Vocal Booth Weekender every year in Spain along side doing local parties such as Brighter Days and more.
So thats me a nice bloke that loves to share his passion for music to a smiling dance floor.
