Steve Helstrip, aka The Thrillseekers, has been at the forefront of the global trance scene for some 15 years. From his first single 'Synaesthesia', through to countless club classics including 'The Last Time’, 'Affinity’, ‘Es Vedra (with Aly & Fila)’ and more recently 'Just Because’ and ‘Amber’, Steve Helstrip has been behind some of the most emotive electronic music ever released. He's worked with pioneers like Trevor Horn, shared co-production credits with Chicane and Ferry Corsten, and remixed for artists including Tiesto and Armin van Buuren.

As a DJ, Steve continues to captivate crowds the world over and has recently performed at Aly & Fila’s headline FSOE450 event at the historic site of Karnak Temple in Egypt. Creamfields, Ministry of Sound, Godskitchen and Gatecrasher have all born witness to his fluid mixing, unique style and energetic performances. 2006 saw him climb to no. 45 in DJ Magazine’s top 100 DJs poll.

In late 2005 The Thrillseekers moved into compilation territory with the release of 'NightMusic Vol. 1'. The CD and 30 date world tour that followed was an instant smash, generating State-side, Russian and Asian releases of the compilation. Summer 2007 saw the heavily anticipated follow-up hit the stores, and repeated again in 2009 with NightMusic Vol. 3.

In 2014 The Thrillseekers notched up 4 consecutive club anthems including ‘This Is All We Have’, which was consistently voted as one of the top trance releases of the year. Armin van Buuren described his track ‘Find You’ as ‘simply brilliant’ and Steve himself as ‘one of his heroes’.

The past six months has seen The Thrillseekers sell out shows around the globe with his open-to-close ‘15 Years of Trance’ events, while his release The Thrillseekers Pres. Hydra ‘Amber’ became the second fastest selling trance release is Beatport history, having reached number 1 in just 3 days. ‘Amber' is the first single to be released from his upcoming album ‘Escape’, which is due for release on FSOE Recordings in December 2016. With 5 more singles lined-up over the coming 6 months, and many high profile events including Dreamstate, 2017 is going to be his biggest year to date.
