Bristol-based DJ Hiphoppapotmaus has been a huge fan of UK Garage ever since he first heard the distinctive style way back in the day. After speaking to some of his music-making friends, it turned out that they too had a love for those crisp drums and sick basslines and because of how DJ Hiphoppapotmaus’ mind works, he held onto that info and began to hatch a plan.
As it has transpired, DJ Hiphoppapotmaus’ grand plan was to inject a fresh and unique flavour into UK Garage like never before with his music-making friends in tow and after two years of hard work and many collaborations, DJ Hiphoppapotmaus and friends present 2Steppin’ Up. Featuring 10 tracks, you can expect to hear the UK Garage sound infused with a selection of global influences from Ska to Bhangra and Latin to Soul from artists such as Father Funk, Fizzy Gillespie, Captain Flatcap, Extra Medium, TWOGOOD and of course DJ Hiphoppapotmaus amongst others. Head into this album with an open mind and the infectious collection will soon find its place in your heart! Get it all now on Thick Boy Records.
Sould you decide to buy 2Steppin’ Up, you can feel extra content with yourselves because not only do you now own 10 top-quality tunes, but you’ve also done your good deed for the day because all profits of the album are going to Music 4 Children, which is a charity that helps underprivileged children in the UK and Nepal. Great tunes, great cause!
