Scarlett Point to Buenos Aires
Christian Steriopulos

Christian Steriopulos tells how his passion for progressive house music has been inspired by the Manx landscape.

The Manx born DJ/Producer first became interested in house music after listening to Radio 1's Essential Selection in the early 1990s.

"I was living near South Barrule at the time and the music seemed to complement and even enhance the atmospheric landscape around me.

Christian now runs his own online record label and DJs around the world.

Soon after hearing the music of DJs such as Sasha, Pete Tong and Paul Oakenfold, Christian bought a pair of record decks and started to mix music.

"Because of university I met up with a whole new group of people who were interested in the same style of music.

"It was at this time that the dream of starting my own label began to seem possible. In the early 2000s I started up my own project called Source of Gravity.

"With the new digital era if you have a laptop and access to the Internet you can listen to my tracks anywhere in the World. This meant that I could run the label from the Isle of Man.

"The music we make can be enjoyed sitting on a beach at Fleshwick or going for a walk in a plantation, not just in nightclubs. It complements most situations.

"One of our latest releases is called Scarlett Point and has been played by some of the biggest DJs in the industry.

Steve McGrath, a local DJ/producer worked with me on the track, and Sterio & McGrath - Scarlett Point was born.

"Some people on the Island may not know much about my music and Source of Gravity, but Paul Van Dyk regularly plays our records in his sets and he has been voted the World's number one by DJ Magazine in the World for the last two years.

"My aim for the future is to keep releasing, making and producing quality music, whilst travelling with the project".
