I am happy to announce the return of STEP. A new podcast series based on Detroit’s first weekly Drum & Bass and Jungle night of the same name. Once again, I start off the first episode to get the ball rolling, and we have a nice lineup of special guests on the way. CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE TO STEP ON ITUNES RIGHT NOW FOR FREE!
Something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time is start a podcast or two, but I kept procrastinating because I didn’t feel like the had the knowledge and equipment necessary to create a solid product.
So, I decided to stop making excuses and just start doing it. I’m allowing myself to make mistakes and learn from them. And, I am learning a lot already. We launched the first episode last week featuring myself, and I’m about to upload the next one later today featuring a live DJ set by Keith Kemp. We plan to release a new episode every week, although I’m not sure that we really need to follow a strict schedule. Give it a listen and let me know what you think…

If you are around an internet connection this evening at 9:00-10:00 PM (Eastern), Steve Ra will be debuting an all vinyl DJ mix I recorded specifically for his show, The Detroit Sessions.
The mix is very personal for me as it begins with some of the first records I ever purchased then takes you on a journey of music made by friends, and peers I have met along the 20 years I have been spinning vinyl, then returns full circle to the beginning.
It was a difficult mix for me to finish because I never program my sets, they’re always improvised. With this, I had a specific amount of songs to squeeze in about and hour’s worth of time.
If anyone is interested in the story behind the selection…ask away. This is a mix of Detroit House music, and I’d like to take this concept further and record a Detroit techno, and a Detroit Electro version as well.

:::Cuatro de Mayo Featuring:::
Andy Toth’s production can be described as dark yet funky. He’s been producing music for over thirteen years now, and it keeps getting better. His illustrious career started with a stint in The Detroit Grand Pubahs, whose hit single “Sandwiches,” as well as the follow-up album, “Funk All Y’all,” saw to it that Andy would get the chance to peddle his wares on stages the world over. His ever-expanding production techniques have seen him working with Detroit’s top talent as a recording engineer, mastering professional, and producer of hip-hop, Rn’B, and electronic music. Andy has released tracks on labels like Jive Electro, Throw, D Records, Intuit Solar, Hej, Exchange Bureau Music, and People Mover Productions. Andy’s music has been traced as the root cause of the return of handle bar mustaches, the reason we like big butts, and the mass bumble bee extinction. Check it.
Eric Hinchman began collecting and playing vinyl to audiences of Detroit over 20 years ago. His record selection varies depending on details like the weather, the hour of the day, or even the day of the year. Having performed at nearly every venue in the Motor City and beyond, Hinchman is probably best known for his year and a half residency at Pontiac’s Velvet Lounge, and his 2 1/2 year residency at Hamtramck’s Lush Lounge. Eric is one of the founding members of the collective known as the Detroit Bachelor DJ Society…the concept was created in his living room with Jeremy 2000 & Derek Plaslaiko back in 1997. While we’re at it. Rich grew his hair out and no longer wears glasses, so stop telling Eric how they used to look like each other…it’s no longer relevant…seriously stop.

Hip-hop perked the interest of Detroit’s Craig Gonzalez to vinyl at a young age. When he attended his first Detroit underground dance party in 1994, he knew he discovered something special and decided to get in the game.
“There was always something that I just found really interesting with DJing itself,” said Gonzalez. “Maybe it’s the idea of taking other people’s tracks and forming my own kind of story with them over an extended period of time… it can be pretty powerful if done correctly. It’s kind of interesting to take part in something like that.”
Realizing how easy it was to get started, he taught himself to DJ and built up a name for himself, joining the roster of the Detroit Bachelor DJs collective: a lineup including several prominent Detroit dance music DJs. He soon had gigs at the legendary St. Andrew’s Hall for the “Three Floors of Fun” weekly, residencies at Ann Arbor’s Blind Pig on “Solar” Wednesdays and nights at clubs Industry and the Labyrinth in the 90s. Today he keeps the music going at various gigs around town and at CraigGonzalez.com with mixes impromptu and scheduled, while the sidebar doesn’t neglect his other passion for sports and gaming. When faced with this competitor on the decks, expect a selection of take-you-back tracks with his own spin on the story.
For the past 15 years, Drew has been exploring and cultivating his love of electronic music by maintaining a presence in the Detroit area. His involvements with Paxahau, DBDJS, Nefarious & Movement alike have all had positive affects on his life and his constant feeding of the fire that sparked him at the beginning. As a DJ, his styles are deep and diverse, infinitely influenced by the vast sea of incredible local talent the city has forged over the past 30+ years.

I just want to congratulate my wife Sarah Hinchman (Thompson) and the rest of the crew on the release of the new moving picture Family Weekend. Sarah worked as part of the crew with hair and make-up and this was her first feature film. I know she was really excited to be a part of it, and I am so proud of her! Great Job!
