DJ Steve Hart
Steve Hart’s passion for dance music ranges from club classics of the 80s and 90s right through to today’s house, garage, soul, jazz funk, and EDM floor fillers.
Steve built his own mobile twin deck console while still at school. At 17 he worked as a mobile DJ and by 1982 landed his first residency at the Zhivago’s nightclub in Southend, Essex, UK.
Zhivago’s was originally known as The Intercon, Chartwell Square, and was ‘famous’ for its stainless steel dance floor.
“I went to The Intercon for Saturday afternoon disco as a 14-year-old and never thought I’d land my first professional gig there 7 years later.”
During the course of about 15 years, Steve worked as resident DJ at clubs including Nero’s 2000, Oceans 11 and Woody’s (all in Kent); as well as The Zero 6, Zhivago’s, Sam Lords, Electric Blue and High Society (all in Southend).
He also DJ’d at the London Hilton, appeared at numerous private parties to play garage music and slowly moved into radio; first as a pirate and then for Radio Top Shop, Basildon Radio, Southend Hospital Radio, the BBC and commercial radio.
The Pleasuredome radio show started as a programme of 80s dance club classics and club rarities. The show developed over the years into a programme of classic and current dance music.
While The Pleasuredome radio show is on an extended break, Steve occasionally produces short sequence mixes which are uploaded to Mixcloud; and available for broadcast on request.
