DJ STEVE ASHBY
|Steve and his brother Adrian were the original funk 45's
kings, setting the early Bristol club scene way back in the early 70's.
Originally hosting funk nights at the guildhall tavern and the mayfair rooms. They also published their own import charts and they were influential in the ''bristol sound'' - 'funk hip hop' quote from massive attack and peaked before the legendary ''dug-out''.
Author Chris Brown and a recent BBC documentary on the early club scene ensures Steve and his brother Adrian - the Avon Soul Army, will live long in the memory. Steve likes his funk heavy, he likes p funk and jazz funk and has a dislike for 80's soul.
