I am absolutely heartbroken to hear about the passing of Steve Sutherland. The first memories I have of music & wanting to be a DJ were because of him. I’d sit up close to my radio & record his Galaxy shows constantly. Steve ‘Smooth’ Sutherland, a pioneer!

Adored listening to Steve Sutherland growing up… and a rave involving Steve never failed to satisfy the need for good music, good vibes, and DJs who really knew they music and excelled in their craft. Such a loss to British black music. https://t.co/tRMY8x3JSP

I am so gutted to hear of #SteveSutherland’s passing. The amount of times he’d get my to leave my house late in the evening to appear on his radio show “it’s gotta be live Bev, no pre-record business!” A BRILLIANT, well loved DJ with an immense legacy. Gutted.
