man steve bug plays allot of fluffy, not-the-greatest-techno records.
and then he drops the absolute sickest, rare track you've ever heard, and you think he's g-d, then another 30 minutes of fluff.
very inconsistent dj. (mockinbird/footwork - good sets. elmocambo and sudbury - bad, cheesey sets.
and this is definitely the case with his latest 3 hour set from detroit. boring,floaty stuff. minus the 5 bombs he drops throughout.
i'd expect more from this guy.

Considering he's not strictly a techno DJ, perhaps that is why you think he's fluff most of the time.

i thought bug was sposed to be 'the godfather of minimal techno funk'?
A lot of stuff in sets I've downloaded I would call straight up house.

I dunno, it depends on your expectations - if you're expecting a set of strictly minimal techno you might find yourself disappointed b/c I do find that he's all over the place. for some, that works, for others, it doesn't, but it sounds like you've figured that out already.

he plays lots of different styles of music. Can't please everyone one I guess.
I thought his set @ El Mocombo was really good. All over the map.

as opposed to say Adam Beyer? I think when Grit says fluff he means FLUFF as in anyone could've made it and no uniqueness to it? either that or I am fukin nutz......

you seem like a really mature dude. it really shocks me how low caliber of a guy you seem like on this board. you can't possibly be as bad in real life as you seem round here. go back to lovin your cheeseball diz set.

I think when grit says 'fluff' he means 'housier music not to his taste'. I am certifiably nutz though.

I agree that it depends on expectations and you can't please everyone. Sometimes I like my techno straight-up, sometimes I love a mishmash and a hodgepodge!

i have an equal passion for both deep house and techno. the stuff bug goes into often is verging on i dunno, trance or somethin along those lines. 'fluff' is the only word i could come up with.
see dtox's post above for more info.^^^

if i made it to detroit and his sounded like what he played at 99, i'd be pissed. footwork was good though.

Bug plays a mixture of techhouse, minimal, acid house and some techno. I have heard sets from him which he even drops fuckin deep west coast style techhouse (farina style shit) and he mixes it up with crazy minimal such as pan pot. The minimal stuff he plays are some of the biggest and more popular ones.
he rarely plays weird cutting edge minimal records... his sets are most of the time funky and dancefloor friendly.

So I agree for a true minimal fan his sound is cheesey in parts and inconsistent.
His bugnology 2 is out sometime soon...

Personally I would prefer to listen to Tanzmann, Guido or Argy who play funky as well but more on the minimal side.

I find Bug really versatile.
He's def not for a fan of one just one genre...

Most of his production i'd consider house, but I certainly expect it to be different than most stuff i'd hear out(which is why i check it).

Then you have heard wrong.

He is all over the place but always manages to flow it together somehow. people on the Tribe board have mixed opinions because they pigeon hole him as a techno dj.
