Steve Bailey – aka Makaton – has been at the forefront of techno releasing peerless, influential and experimental techno music since 1998.
Bailey is from Birmingham in the UK, and along with Surgeon and Regis pushes an upfront and raw sound. With his heritage rooted deeply in the heavily industrialised ‘Black Country’ area of the Midlands, he operates in the dark and industrial landscape.
Rodz-Konez was started in 1998 as an outlet for Makaton to release music.
Makaton’s unique production style leans heavily on dub, industrial, no wave and minimalism concepts. Bailey’s experimental approach has seen him introduce new ways to represent techno and leave outdated approaches to the genre at the wayside.
Makaton joined James Ruskin’s Blueprint label in 2015 and since then, has had 3 releases and an exclusive track released to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the label.
His compelling live set electrifies audiences and has seen him bolster techno in the UK, across Europe and in Asia playing at the world’s top clubs while also supporting burgeoning local scenes.
He has played at Fabric in London, House of God in Birmingham, clubs in Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow, as well as Concrete in Paris, Berghain and Tresor in Berlin, Contact in Tokyo and Constant Value in Seoul.
Makaton’s live sets range from deep to industrial and are always sonically challenging.
