Steel Grooves (Capital Techno Recordings)


Steel Grooves is the alter ego of Rex Bruton of Austin Texas USA. Rex began DJing in 1996 at the age of 15. Throughout this time, Rex has played the role of Promoter, DJ, Producer, and Label Owner. Capital Techno began as a DJ crew and eventually grew up to be a well respected label showcasing international techno artists. 

Steel Grooves currently holds a residency at Kingdom [Afterhours] Nightclub in Austin Texas. 2nd Saturdays of each month alongside KROX FM Hypersonic Radio personality Jason Jenkins and 3rd Fridays with the CTR DJ collective. 

Rex spends most of his free time running Capital Techno Recordings and producing music under multiple alias including Steel Grooves, Single Cell, Subforce (w Jeff F), Rex B, Groove Mekanics (w John Reyes). 

To Rex Techno is a religion. With over a decade of experience behind the dex, Steel Grooves consistantly delivers a unique dancefloor experience that can exceed ones imagination. Through the Good Bad & Ugly Steel Grooves will always seek to spread the word of the underground. Creating new fans is a challenging but exciting way of life .Rex's mission as a DJ is to continue to push the boundaries of mixing and production while staying true to his sound. He could care less about the glamour that some DJs seem to thrive on. He prefers to let the music do the talking...
