Alpha Steppa & Awa Fall’s debut full length collaborative album, ‘What a Joy’. This outstanding 12 vocal and 12 dub double album couples Alpha Steppa’s signature future-dub sound with the powerful, versatile and soulful voice of Awa Fall. Both artists are known to promote a conscious message, this album confronts socio-political and environmental issues; from the climate crisis, the refugee crisis, to race, gender and inequality. The album also speaks of love, with an ambiguity open to romance, self-love and divine love. This is truly an album for lovers of dub, reggae, soundsystem culture and music for the soul, what a joy.

Awa Fall is a rising reggae star, born to a Senegalese father and Italian mother, she started writing, recording and performing at the age of 14. Today, she has toured the world, featured on national television, performed for the UN, FOA Women’s Committee and at major reggae festivals. Awa has shared the stage with major reggae artists such as Alborosie, Africa Unite and has worked with some of the most respected producers and singers in dub, reggae and beyond including; Alpha Steppa, Mad Professor, General Levy, M1 (Dead Prez), Gaudi, Murray Man, Kumar, Charlart58 and Vibronics.

Alpha Steppa (Steppas Records / Dub Dynasty) has been surrounded by soundsystem culture from a young age. As the son and nephew of respected UK dub pioneers Alpha & Omega (Greensleeves) his dubbed out style draws upon the sounds of his musical heritage, filtered through an exploration of reggae, dub, hip hop, lo-fi, sound design, traditional and electronic music. Alpha Steppa has toured the world, produced numerous critically acclaimed albums and most notably developed a dynamic community around his unique sound and conscious message.
