DJ Step is a multi-disciplinary artist based out of Chicago, Illinois, who focuses on the connection between music and sport.
Inspired by the relationship between movement, rhythm, and competition – a 16-year-old Ben Stepnowski became enthralled with record selection, creating mini-mixtapes for friends and teammates growing up in central Connecticut.
As a classically trained trumpet player with a fascination in communicating through performance, Step moved to Chicago to pursue a degree in Communications Studies & Spanish. When he arrived, his passion for music would lead him to the record store every weekend, but also headfirst into the art of DJing.
Now as a graduated student of that art, Step continues to embrace and learn from dance floors across Chicago, scratching and mixing his way through various genres and venues. From rocking mainstream clubs like Studio Paris in the heart of the city, to leading the music direction for Chicago’s professional soccer team, the Fire, Step prides himself on the ability to connect with the music and energy that he feels passionate about, taking audiences along for the ride.
