Steve Proctor from Liverpool, England, began DJing in 1979, before moving to London in the mid-80s, guesting at Shoom and Sunrise. He subsequently played at the Promised Land at the London Fitness Centre and Love at the Wag. His balearic reputation revolved around him playing all sorts of tracks at the latter club that had ‘love’ in the title (including Fleetwood Mac). Better Days was the title Proctor chose as his recording vehicle. Two singles were completed for Virgin Records before departing for Music For Nations. A club night also titled Better Days came into being at London’s Villa Stefano, as did a label of the same title. Releases such as Museka’s ‘Beautiful In Red’, Marshall Hains’ ‘Dancing In The City’ and John DaSilva’s Disco Universe Orchestra’s ‘Soul On Ice’ and ‘Sing It’ followed. Other artists included the Better Days Project and Santa Esmerelda.
