The son and nephew of respected dub heavyweights Alpha & Omega, Alpha Steppa has been surrounded by soundsystem and dubplate culture from a young age. Now a talented producer in his own right, his productions connect the dots between the music which he has grown up around and the new generation of UK bass music of which he is a part. His dubbed out style draws upon the sounds of his musical heritage, filtered through an exploration of the newer sounds of dubstep.

Following an extensive year touring, Alpha Steppa is now set to return with return with his second studio album, 3rd Kingdom on Steppas Records. Due for release on July 7, the album is “a product of his travels around the world and exists as a sort of travel diary that chronicles the people he’s met and collaborated with and the experiences he’s picked up on the way.”

In advance of the release, he’s offered up an exclusive rework of “The Time Has Come” as one of today’s free downloads. Click the WeTransfer button below to grab it now.
