Q: Please introduce yourself

Hello, I’m Low Steppa, a house music DJ from Birmingham, UK. I love making people dance and enjoy themselves! 

Q: One person you'd dream to have a coffee with?

Prince, but it can’t happen now. 

Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

I’d like to fly. I’ve always thought about how amazing this would be since I was a little kid, gliding through the air, especially at night. 

Q: If you would have been given the chance to do a film score, what movie would you choose and why?

I’d love to do an alternate version of Drive. It can’t possibly be made better, but it would be fun anyway. 

Q: Who has been the most influential in your music career? And why?

DJ-wise, I would say Danny Rampling, Roger Sanchez, Louie Vega, CJ Mackintosh, and Yousef. 

Q: Tell us about your journey, what got you to where you are today?

It was pure love for the music and being organic. I just wanted it and wanted to share music. At times in the past, I thought I was doing well before Low Steppa, but now I look back, they were just practice runs. It’s important to believe and to do it for the right reasons. Love music more than just wanting to be famous or be on stage. 

Q: Everyone goes through ups and downs, what’s one habit you adopt to push through the downs?

Focus on what you do have, not what you don’t. Write down what is good and don’t always look up at people doing better than you. Learn to love where you are in your own journey. 

Q: Can you recall a DJ set or performance of yours that remains unforgettable to you? Where did it take place, and what makes it stand out among all others?

I could think about this question for a long time or just go with what comes to my head first: Womb Tokyo about 14 years ago. That was crazy. Being flown somewhere like Japan and the club going wild was an amazing experience. 

Q: How has your music style evolved over the years?

It’s been all over the place, so many genres, but I’m back to my passion now, which is solid house music. I don’t follow trends too much. I just love nice house music, whether it’s dubby or vocal, whatever I feel at that time. 

Q: If you were to venture into another music genre, which one would you choose and why?

I love liquid dnb, always have and always will. Makoto, Marky, Calibre, etc. That’s another love of mine. 

Q: Could you name 3 tracks that got you into electronic music and why?

Going right back, it would be tracks like Prodigy - "Everybody In The Place (Fairground Remix)," Orbital - "Are We Here," Praga Khan - "Injected With A Poison," and Dance Conspiracy - "Dub War (Chapter One)." 

Q: Can you recommend a hidden gem in your home country that would be perfect for a rave?

The best place for a small rave is Joshua Brooks in Manchester. It’s intimate, has amazing sound, and is a mint venue. It just goes crazy in there. 

Q: Could you tell us about your upcoming releases and plans for the year?

I have a nice summer vibe out this week on Armada called "Tengo Fuego" and my latest track "Big Busta" is out now on Toolroom. There’s lots of music coming, and it’s quite varied. I love to mix up the styles these days. 

Q: Can you share a fun fact about yourself that most of your listeners are probably unaware of?

This one has got me, haha. Not sure on a fun fact, but I have a funny little story. I turned up to a show in Canada years ago, and they presented me with a huge painting of me, but they had painted someone else by mistake, haha. They must have used Google and picked the wrong image. I told them, and what made it even more memorable was their response, ‘Do you like it, though?’ Yeah, mint, thanks. There you go.
