End of an era, beginning of an era!
My time at the Savoy has more-or-less
come to an end this week, and I will no longer be a resident DJ at
Rapture! I spent the bones of 6 or 7 years DJing in the Savoy and
I’d like to thank everyone involved in some great nights. I’ll
still be putting on the odd big hip-hop show there, more details
next week, and will also continue to host Jam Junior there every few
months. I’m involved in the opening of a smaller new venue in a
couple of months so it was a good time for me and the Savoy to go
our separate ways, but I look forward to continuing our good relationship.
Thanks to everyone for some great times, i dedicate my last record last
Saturday, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", probably my favourite ever
tune, to you!

- I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays http://www.pavilioncork.com also you can catch me at http://djstevieg.podomatic.com
