"Steppas' Delight tells the story of dubstep -- from its South London roots up to its present status as the most vibrant musical sub-culture in the UK -- and its subsequent virus-like growth throughout the world. The album is made up of exclusive new tracks alongside some choice tracks from dubstep's recent history and features many of the original groundbreaking names alongside the current underground new wave of dubstep producers. In the early 2000s dubstep was a marginal music made by a handful of young producers in the concrete-coated suburbs of South-West London. Using free PC software like Fruity Loops or PlayStation's music-making software Music 2000 and making their own left-field versions of dark garage records. Fast forward eight years and dubstep is easily the most vibrant scene in the UK with many of the original dubstep artists now the most in-demand producers, remixers, DJs and label-owners in the UK today. Steppas' Delight traces the musical journey of dubstep from these small beginnings to the current new wave of young artists and producers on the scene today. This release is both a snapshot of the present and future and an essential guide to dubstep, and tells the story of the music -- the artists, labels, clubs, radio stations, cutting houses and more. This release is a continuation of Soul Jazz Records' prolific dubstep releases such as the Box of Dub albums and singles from the likes of Digital Mystikz, Skream, Ramadanman, Cotti, Kode9, Ladybug, Warrior Queen and many more... Complete with extensive sleeve-notes, interviews and exclusive photographs the album comes as deluxe-double CD pack with booklet."
