DJ Steppas has been playing music for over 36 years from the tender age of 6 when his father used to sort out various vinyl for him to play on a Sunday morning. Growing up in a Jamaican household the music used to be 90% reggae but also Rhythm and Blues with icons like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding amongst others.
Then in 1984 the family migrated to Jamaica.
As the years past Steppas started to build his own vinyl collection with his first two 45s being Dignitary Stylish’s Jah Send Mi Come and Peter Metro’s No Problem, then his ongoing love affair with Reggae and other genres began which resulted in any pocket money he earned went straight onto purchasing the latest vinyl releases on a Friday.
In later years as a teenager he got involved with a local sound system called Hot Gossip was taught by legendary selector Ishie how to ‘mix and blend’ two tracks together…..and the rest of history.
