Double LP version. Raise The Ark, the new album from Alpha Steppa, marks ten years of Steppas Records. This vocal-dub album defies convention and introduces the listener to a new world of soundsystem music. Raise The Ark evolves and expands the distinct avant-guard dub style of Alpha Steppa, exploring the realms of hip hop, trap, trad, folk, and bass music. True to the Steppas Records ethos, the music carries a deep and crucial message, covering current and timeless topics; from the climate crisis, sociopolitical issues, to roots, culture and spirituality. Working closely with known artists from the Steppas imprint and as we have come to expect, introducing us to new and emerging talent from across the globe. Raise The Ark features include; Pupa Jim of Stand High Patrol (France), Sista Awa (Italy/Senegal), Cian Finn (Ireland), Ras Tinny (Suriname), Nai-Jah (Nigeria), Tenor Youthman (Russia), Eva Keyes (Ireland), and Block Mameli (Italy/Ghana). The collection features evocative and provocative vocal tracks and thundering instrumental/dub mixes. Raise The Ark is a truly eclectic, profound and exciting album not to be missed. In partnership with onetreeplanted.org we will plant a tree in Ethiopia for every record sold. "One of the most prolific and inventive dub producers around" --Wire. "A serious player in the soundsystem world" --Mixmag.
