40 Questions: Low Steppa

One of the top selectors to come out of Britain in recent years is no doubt Birmingham native Low Steppa. The househead’s clean-cut, groove-filled sound has landed him releases on Defected Records, Ultra Music and Armada Deep.

When not putting out his original tunes on the worlds biggest dance labels, he’s aiding other producers in achieving the same goal via his own Simma Black. Names like Gene Farris, David Keno and Vanilla Ace have released on the label.
