Chameleon Recordings


Steve Ward is an Australian born DJ, producer, label owner and radio host who is considered one of the nation’s most respected music industry figures.

Over many years, the Ward sound has evolved into a truly unmistakable blend of tough house grooves coupled with the energy of techno and the spirit of Detroit, a perfect package which has been proven to work on dance floors from New York to Tokyo, Amsterdam to Ibiza.

Throughout his colourful career Steve has had the rare chance to write music with a high caliber of A-list artists the likes of Carl Cox, Nile Rodger & Chicago acid house pioneer Dj Pierre to name a few.

Steve’s unpredictable dj & live sets have made him a hometown hero, fusing everything from disco, house, techno and electronica which has not only led him to perform at some of the most exciting events around the globe but also the ongoing success of his weekly Chameleon Global Radio Show (now syndicated through every continent around the world).

Steve’s record label Chameleon Recordings completely changed the Australian independent music landscape combining visual art with genre bending electronic music which paved the way for a new era in his home country. Steve’s debut EP "The Window Between Us and Them" not only pushed the label into a global spotlight but opened door for a movement which would see Chameleon events and festival showcases held all around the world from Berlin to Bangkok, Auckland to Noumea and was the first Australian label to be invited to the world acclaimed Amsterdam Dance Event.
