After more than 20 years of spinning and producing under pseudonyms D’Stephanie and later on D’Steph, with releases on renowned labels such as Sonar Kollektiv, Chez, Jalapeno, Hed Kandi, PUMA… a change was necessary to break down old habits and reinvent oneself. This resulted in a short move to london in summer of 2015 and a more consistent one to Berlin 2 months later. It´s In Berlin where she rediscovered her passion for real underground house-music in its most honest way and resuscitated her inner nineties kid that just discovered house, real house… The kind of house music that was about the mind, the body and the soul. The ultimate seduction for rebels, artists, anarchists, people of all nations, colours, genders, sexualities and most of all an open minded, non commercialized or marketed community.
To put this feeling into action, a new pseudonym was inevitable and Sherø was born.
What has she been up to in the past?
It´s been quite a ride for Stephanie. Starting at the tender age of 15 years old at Radio Centraal, a local radio station being frequented by some of the early stars of fashion and art students, Stephanie moved on quickly to the playgrounds of some of the best clubs in Belgium. From 1995 thru 2005, Stephanie held various well respected club residencies, serving a mix of house, deephouse, Techno, tech house and other new electronic music genres.
1995- 1999: At the renowned Café d’Anvers she spun at the groundbreaking Gap Club, Positive Educations and Nu Skool Friday nights. Meanwhile Antwerp crowds also witnessed her do her thing at Excursions in Dance on Saturday Nights while on Thursdays she rocked Brussels very hi-tech Cybertheatre. Meanwhile she was a frequent guest dj at various clubs and Festivals like I love techno, 10 days off festival, Fuse club and many more.
Come 1999, Stephanie was one of the quintessential factors that made Fill Collins club the hippest in Antwerp and beyond. Two years later, she maintained her momentum when she moved to Club Geluk for another 3 year residency at Antwerp’s newest hotspot. In this period she got signed at Holland’s Barkers bookings agency, scored a 3 monthly residency at Chemistry in Amsterdam, while frequently playing Now & Wow in Rotterdam and Decadence in Ghent. On top of all that, for 4 years, she blessed one of the biggest male lifestyle magazines Ché with often controversial record reviews.
After 2005 the club scene in Belgium changed into a more pop up party orientated nightlife so she decided to break free from club residencies and focus on one off gigs and touring with the vocalists who featured on her own productions on labels such as Sonar Kollektiv (Berlin), Jalapeno records (London), Chez (New York), Hed Kandi (UK), Puma (USA), Black Vinyl (London) , Broadcite (London), Wally’s groove world (Antwerp) and many more.
Throughout 2011 Stephanie featured vocalists from around the globe: Wunmi (new York/London), Angelique Brown (Detroit), JNM (Amsterdam), Philippo & Melissa (Antwerp).
From 2012 until present day, Stephanie went back to basics and started playing solo again as an underground house and tech house dj.
