Stephen Hamilton(STEEZYSTEVE) is a DJ/Producer from the Southern California beach town of Santa Barbara. Music runs deep in his veins. Stephen's father, born in Belize, co-hosted a gospel music radio show for 91.9 KCSB at the University of California Santa Barbara for over 15 years and his mother plays various instruments. He grew up listening to his father's Jazz and Funk records. Stephen taught himself how to play the piano and drums at an early age. He has a very sharp ear for music, being able to identify the key and bpm of a song within seconds. Stephen began DJing when he was 12 years old. "Music has always been a big part of my life. Back in the myspace days, I could never decide on a profile song so I made entire playlists. I was so proud of them, I'd send them to friends. After that, DJing seemed like the right thing to do.", he explained. Stephen's musical influences are Kanye West, RL Grime, Adventure Club, DJ A-Trak, Pete Rock, Timbaland, Travis Scott & Kurt Cobain to name a few. Though he's known for his electronic remixes, Stephen is a Hip Hop head at heart listening to artists like The Pharcyde, Black Sheep & Naughty By Nature on a daily basis. Originally, Stephen taught himself to be a traditional hip hop DJ studying turntablism but ventured into electronic music bringing his Hip Hop elements with him. His Hip Hop edge is what sets him apart in the electronic world. Stephen is a very big Nirvana fan and has a Kurt Cobain mentality in regards to music listeners. "I want people to have an open mind when they hear my mixes, my songs, or see me live. I want to expose them to new sounds and make the best product. I want to push the envelope and be a music creator, not just a DJ confined to one genre".
