His own productions have been remixed by Roman Fluegel, Derrick Carter, 808 State, Crazy P, Paul Johnson, Nick Holder, DJ W!LD to name but a few.
Steinberg's early output arrived on Jesse Rose's Front Room label with a string of releases including the latin house hit 'Bailando' and his debut album 'Shut up'. The focus shifted in 2011 to his own Arms & Legs imprint through which he released his subsequent albums 'Treptow' and 'Left-Handed' and club classics 'Joy & Happiness' and 'Let Me Down' that was re-released on Defected with a chart topping remix from Tube & Berger.
His DJ-ing has been similarly heralded having built a reputation as an artist who delivers serious fun to the dance floor. Daniel has played peak-time slots across the globe including Panorama Bar Berlin, Rex Club Paris, Baum Bogota, DC310 Mexico City, Razzamatazz Barcelona, Wire Festival Japan, Fusion Festival Germany. See him in a behind the decks and you'll immediately know why, his energy is infectious and his skill undeniable as he weaves together own brand of fun-fuelled house and techno, full of sly creative winks.
'Gleefully maximal, unashamedly nostalgic house... this is fist-pumping good fun from start to finish' – Resident Advisor.
Over the past decade Kristin Velvet’s life has been devoted to music in one way or another - first as a promoter & DJ in Tokyo, then as the Australian label manager of UK’s Domino Records. Today she is an essential figure of Berlin’s club scene, heading up the fantastic Arms & Legs records - the label from Daniel Steinberg & Nils Ohrmann - which has featured a long line of killer remixes & releases from respected artists including Oliver Dollar, Paul Johnson, 808 State, Nick Holder, Jay Haze, DJ W!LD & Crazy P.
Velvet’s music acumen has been well documented within the label with her own productions gaining support by the likes of Maya Jane Coles who featured two of Velvet’s tracks in her BBC Radio 1 essential mix of 2015. Geared directly to the dance floor her releases have also received nods from key tastemakers including Resident Advisor who hailed her ‘Big Bam City’ EP as ‘gleefully maximal, unashamedly nostalgic house... this is fist-pumping good fun from start to finish'. Velvet’s music taste is broad and her flexibility behind the decks sees her traversing confidently across genres and decades but always with a keen eye on the dance floor, a place she inherently understands.
