DJ STEELY ROUNDBEAT
At an early age, over 35 years ago in 1982, inspired by groups like Madness, The Selector and The Police, Dj ''Radical'' Steely (The Chuner) started playing Dub, Reggae & Ska with The Swing-a-Ling Posse outdoors, and under the name "RoundBeat" at his homebase. Those days he found a lot of 'musical directions' by listening/learning from the 'Studio One and Coxsone' labels from Jamaica. Through the years he became a very extreme collector/selector of Dub, original Jamaican 'sought after' 45's, soul, jazz, Cuban and moody instrumentals. He is an all-round (Reggae) soundman and a Studio One 'riddim' specialist who loves consciousness, righteousness and mixing skills ... At home he still uses an old customized turntable he got from his dad when only 8 years old, next to his Technics ++
Every thursday from 22-2300, DJ Steely has his show at OOG-Radio, voted the best local radio station in The Netherlands for the year 2016. For over 12 years from the mid 9-ties Steely had his own internet-radio session at NauticRadio where he played every sunday a 3 or 4 hour set, with listeners from all over the world (shoutcast). Since 2017 he is 'frontman' at the 'DubClub'dances in Groningen.
In 2014 Dj Steely RoundBeat was decorated by Groningen City Night Mayor Chris Garrit, as the ''Night Commander in the Order of the Groninger Night'' for his musical rendered services/contributions through the years in the Groningen-City underground scene. Between 2010/14 he invited guest djs at his Blazin'Fyah Partys, every first friday of the month in a local club in his hometown. In 2012 he started the ''Dub Salute'' band but sadly left a year later, the band splitted soon after that..
Steely was the producer/manager for the Reggaestage at "The Gideon Festival #1-6" in Groningen (2006/12).
In 2011 Steely 'The Chuner' produced a 'Mash-Up' album with 12 remix tracks. A MashUp-tune is where you put an acapella on a total other riddim, for instance; Elvis Presley (vox only) meets The Wailers (riddim only)
He is resident dj for Poppodium Club VERA (Groningen, NL.) where in 1997 he founded a Dj-Collective called "Dub Inferno Sound" and gave upcoming talents an opport-unity to dj or 'chat pon the mike'. Dub Inferno always had guest dj's, played at 'Lowlands' and '2.7's Splash' (both NL.), normally every Dutch (Queens)Kingsday 'SoundSystem' outdoors on the street in front of the VERA Club but the last yers in the basement (Government rules)
From 1996 till 2004, he played at the 'Dance Valley Festivals' in the ChillOut-tent a mix of Chilly-Spaced Out-DownBeat-Dub riddims, Once at Psy-Fi.
From 1982 on till now, he made hundreds of posters & flyers by hand, toured years with the famous Dutch Ska band "Jammah Tammah" and won a Dj-contest in 1996.
Through the years Steely supported really a lot of Reggae-artists with his 'RoundBeat Sound' just to name a few: Yellowman, Ziggy Recado, Cocoa Tea, Lee Perry, Burning Spear, Frankie Paul, Sizzla, Bunny Wailer, Turbulence, Eek a Mouse, Pat Kelly, UB40, I-Jahman Levy, Tristan Palmer, The Itals, Ethiopian, The Heptones, Shinehead, The Ska-Talites (4), Marcia Griffiths ...
Since 1982 Steely played at a lot of places, (illegal)parties, dances and festivals like RastaPlas NL., ReggaeFever, ReggaeRuigoord NL, Reggae Sundance Fest. NL, Ska-Sjock Fest....+++
Playing at non-reggae festivals (Bernoulli, NoorderZon Gn, and various FoodFestivals) he also loves to play Jazz, Blues, Old Soul, Disco, Ska and Cuban music in the mix !! Just to keep that in mind !!
Steely's RoundBeat HiFi plays NuSkool-Reggae, Jamaican dance, Ska and U.K. Dubs, (plus whats needed) .
Talking about 'sound', the full crew, Steely and Bro.Irie-T, O29 and Stevie Brentford are building on a 'Sound System' (P.A.) which is always ready to play ROUNDBEAT MUZIK, Conscious Dubs, Studio 1 instrumentals, Ska, DanceHall and Soulfull originals...
and the Beat goes on ,,,
