Step Forward Radio - Bucky Fargo 05.19.2012 (5 years of Step Forward)
Rooted in the dark, spacey sounds of minimal/techno, Bucky Fargo takes audiences on tech-heavy ride suited for the after-midnight set. Growing up in the house epicenter of Chicago, Fargo took some points from the radio pioneers who crafted a weekly vibe on the Hot Mix 5 of WBMX 102.7. In junior high, he was known for carting around boxes of self-styled mix tapes and giving them to friends just to spread the house sound. After hunting down music of his interest in runned down warehouses, Bucky was quickly influenced by the rave scene in the 90 's
In no time Bucky was a seasoned conductor of the Midwest rave scene and playing some of the most respected club events acorss the tri state area. In 2004, he took his role as a DJ one step further, landing gigs on the trans-Atlantic party circuits of Eastern Europe and beyond.
These days, Fargo still works plenty of overseas play dates, joining the ranks of some of the most respected artists. The recent launch of this new label, Nightsweat Recordings, has kept this minimal mastermind busy in Chicago. The imprint will include some of the premiere producers on the minima/tech-housel scene. The label spotlights an array of minimal tech-house talent, with Fargo as the main behind it all.
His long-and-layered transitions keep crowds wondering where the next breakdown will break. Pushing the boundaries and always experimenting with dance floors everywhere, Bucky is always keeping listeners on their feet. His work on Step Forward Radio is gradually being picked up by radio shows across the globe..combined with his recent migration back into the studio ensures that Fargo is clearly making heads turn.
