Steven lives in the UK and has always had a life long love affair with music, singing and song creation and was heavily influenced by the heady synth sounds of the 80’s. He actually released his first track at the age of 16 in the UK, after winning a singing competition judged by Noddy Holder from Slade. During the 90's, he teamed up with the charismatic DJ & producer Steven Bolton. They released a string of successful singles as Sotto Voce - ‘Dreams (One Night)’, ‘Higher And Higher’, ‘Happy People’, ‘Big Piano’ and ‘Rome’ all of which received extensive radio play across Canada and high positions in most dance and club charts. As "Sotto Voce", Steven appeared on many Radio & TV shows performing live at clubs throughout Toronto during the 90’s. There were also stadium appearances at Italo Fest summer festivals, Summer Rush at Kingswood Music Theatre and Powerjam at the Molson Amphitheatre. He performed alongside La Bouche, C&C Music Factory, 2 Unlimited, Black Box, The Mighty Dub Kats, B.G. The Prince of Rap, , Dr Alban, Lil Suzie, Robin S, Clock, Real Mcoy, Jocelyn Enriquez, Reel 2 Reel, Elissa, Emjay and many others. In 2013, Steven teamed up with the spacesynth & italo music producer, Razvan Dumitru Voicu aka Vanello for the first time on the track "SOS For Love", released through ZYX Music & charting in Canada’s Eurodance Hits chart, Will Reid’s Club 80's New Generation Italo chart at No. 5 & reached No.1 in RM80's New Generation Italo Disco chart. This was followed by the passionate ‘Your Eyes Don’t Lie’. In 2014, Moderno together with Vanello produced the emotive soaring "My Angel" which reached No.1 in the RMI chart & No.6 in the the Club80’s chart and has since become a Youtube fan favourite. "S.O.S For Love", "My Angel" and 'Your Eyes Don't Lie" became part of Vanello's 2015 album ,"Essential". The hot Italo burner "The King of the Summer" with Vanello was also released by ZYX Music in 2016 and reached No.2 in the RMI chart. Steven & Vanello then recorded the retro pop 80’s influenced ’Digital Love' released by ZYX Music in 2017 this time with remixes from Matt Pop (Hazell Dean, Peter Wilson, Erasure, Nicki French) & Kiss The Panther. The neon 80’s styled video featured Vanello & Steven in electric dreams together with 2 androids finding love through music. "Digital Love" reached No.1 in the RMI chart & number No.3 in the Music Reloaded Dance Chart. In 2019, another single with Vanello, the hypnotic uplifting "Spark", including a Moderno remix, climbed into the RMI chart and was included on ZYX Italo Disco New Generation Vol.15. Also in 2019 Moderno released a cover of The Beloved’s classic ‘Sweet Harmony’ which was play-listed by legendary Blitz Club DJ Rusty Egan (Rich Kids, Visage) & reached the top 20 in Dave’s DJ Dance Chart in February 2020. In 2021, Moderno and Vanello & Steven Kimber joined a host of Pop and Italo New Generation artists to record 2 tracks for the 10 Shades of Blue tribute album to Blue System CD released by Asahi Music. This album gave lead to another collaboration between Steven and Asahi Music, namely "I Wanna Be The One". A NuDisco remix of the song crafted by the Drop Out Orchestra was released by the label Boogie Angst Records and included on the "Boogie Beats Vol. 3" compilation (which is also available on Vinyl record). It was play-listed in April 2022 on the radio show of DJ Mark Doyle from HedKandi/Fierce Angel. 2 other sets of mixes arranged by Johann Perrier aka MS Project and James Blair aka Project K respectively will be released on 24 June 2022. To be continued very soon...
