I created and compiled two volumes of the Steppas’ Delight dubstep compilations for Soul Jazz. They were very well received which was slightly unexpected but confirmed that something great was going on – and that the mainstream was ready to listen.
Vol 1 came out in 2008 and included tracks from Kode9, Joker, Benga and Shackleton. I selected the music and wrote the sleevenotes featuring interviews with all the artists on the compilation.
Steppas Delight Vol 2 came out in 2009. It contained the first release from James Blake as well as music from Brackles, Pangea, Darkstar and Ramadanman. Again, I compiled, this time with Soul Jazz’s Nicole McKenzie, and I wrote the sleevenotes which included extensive interviews with the artists.
More compilations exist in playlists… who knows where they’ll go later.
