What started his electronic dance music journey was spending weekends at his brothers house simply recording dance tracks and making mix tapes on cassette tapes from local radio shows for his own personal enjoyment.

Constantly connecting with like minded individuals who share this unique love for house music, The Poet understands that House music isn’t just a genre of music, but a spiritual feeling we all share differently and strive to generate through every musical element shared.

BEARCAST #063 - Esteban

Esteban otherwise known as Ste Hendry, hails from Liverpool in the UK and has been DJ’ing for almost 30 years. A regular visitor to one of Liverpool’s most iconic music venues, ‘The State’ in 1989 at the time of the emerging acid house scene and frequent visits to Manchester’s legendary Hacienda that same year, he was heavily influenced by the likes of Mike Pickering and Graeme Park in mixing acid house and disco. In 1990 he started playing warm up sets at parties and nights in Liverpool, gaining regular spots at venues across the north west during the 1990s and early ‘noughties’ until hanging up his headphones in 2008 after starting a family. Over these last two years Esteban has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance as a DJ (or mid-life crisis as he puts it!) - after being asked to join a vinyl night at a local bar in 2016 he was soon offered his own monthly spot at the same venue. Today ‘Esteban’ is all about the nu-disco and edits vibe and has recently provided exclusive guest mixes for the likes of La Vida Liverpool, Spin City, House Theory Radio Show, Disco Daze and Lamb-oh. His love of this genre of music has led to newfound and solid friendships with like-minded disco heads from north of the border ‘Dirty Old Vinyl’ and Goz (Spin City), and he is delighted to share this exclusive mix for Brother Bear and showcase the sounds of some of his current favourite producers.
