Biography

Jean Jacques Smoothie is otherwise known as the DJ, producer and label impresario Steve Robson. He is a global breaks and DJ.

Jean-Jacques Smoothie has been DJing in and around the UK and Europe for years, including tours in Germany, a residency in Madrid and spots at Big Chill festivals. He’s also a long-time mainstay of the Phantom Beats collective from Cardiff.

Originally from Gloucester, Steve moved to Cardiff in the mid- to do a degree in broadcasting. It was there that he first got the bug for DJing. “My girlfriend left me and I bought a set of decks on the same day. I’ve never looked back,” he says. “I’d been collecting records for years anyway and had always been into music of some form or other, mainly and .”

His first residency came in 1994 in the back bar of a student night called the Cheesey Club, where he spun leftfield beats. He soon moved on to produce his own music and establish a label to release it.

Mr. Smoothie started off spinning dub and hip hop in 1996 at the legendary Space Station in Cardiff with fellow breaks fans Phantom Beats and Captain Spec X Ray. The Captain and the Smoothie, armed with two of the silliest names in DJ-dom head off around the world capturing hearts and minds alike. When he returned Smoothie decided to settle into a long period in the studio.
