Power Steppers let their music and images to do the talking. Rooted in the Sound System scene in London but aware of hardcore underground music scenes world wide including techno, punk and noise, they endorse protest through music as well as other means!
Using bass and delay as their primary instruments of protest they build intense, minimal dubs, which hypnotise, en-trance and inspire. With musical inspirations ranging from Jah Shaka to Faust via Brain Ticket and Ash Ra Temple it can be seen why their sound is so distinctive and continues to develop at every new recording session.
The force behind the Power Steppers is Colin Consterdine, "one of the strangest people it has ever been our pleasure to meet". He is also destined to spread his message throughout the world with the power of his music stepping into the future in a dubwise fashion.
"The Powersteppers began life as an offshoot of UK Dub Pioneers Zion Train. Created by Cod, Tench and Perch, (the three principle members of Zion Train), as an outlet for the more manic, Sound System Dubs that they created. Originally the The Powersteppers released two albums, ‘Bass Enforcement’ and ‘Bass Re-enforcement’ and several singles, as well as appearing on multiple compilations. As with all the music produced by Zion Train between 1992-2006 the early Powersteppers music was written by Colin Consterdine."
Powersteppers is now mainly active as a live act with Molara (Zion Train, Baka Beyond) on vocals, Cut La Vis (Dub Merge, Soul Syndicate) Scratch DJ and various guest vocalists. A new album is production but no release date is scheduled.
