Alpha Steppa is a UK reggae, dub and bass music producer. He is the son and nephew of roots dub duo Alpha & Omega (Greensleeves Records). Alpha Steppa released his first record, via his own label, Steppas Records in 2010, since then he has released numerous singles, EP’s and remixes. Alpha Steppa also works alongside his father and aunt (Alpha & Omega) producing collaborative works under the shared alias, Dub Dynasty. Since 2013 Dub Dynasty have released two albums, Unrelenting Force and Thundering Mantis, described by Q Magazine as “obliteratingly heavy bass” and by Mixmag as “thunderous goodness”, respectively. BBC 6 Music radio presenter Don Letts included Thundering Mantis in his Best of 2014 radio playlist. In September 2015 Alpha Steppa released his debut solo album, a two part album entitled Rooted & Grounded, described by Reggae Roots Review as “holy albums; the tracks create a mood, a way of life even, dub to worship.” Alpha Steppa has collaborated with various notable reggae artists, including, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Gregory Isaacs and Lutan Fyah. Alpha Steppa has developed a sound which links roots reggae with contemporary bass music, described in Mixmag by Joe Muggs as “a UK producer with a rich roots reggae heritage who’s injected that into a dubstep framework” and “a serious player in the soundsystem world”.
