Interview With Low Steppa

Hello Will, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule!
How excited are you about your upcoming performance at Beats For Love in the Czech Republic?

I’m very excited! I’ve never been to the Czech Republic before, and I’ve heard a lot about this festival. I’m thrilled to be on the lineup!

What are your expectations about performing at Harmony House Square?

I just hope to see a lot of smiling faces, a lot of dancing, and a banging sound system. I’m sure we will all have a great time.

A big tune from Low Steppa and Jewel Kid is out now! How did the collaboration come about? And how would you describe the style and energy of “Big Busta”?

Yeah, I’ve been a fan of what Jewel Kid has been doing for a while, so I suggested we work on something together. He sent me a folder of tracks, and this one really stood out to me. The groove and style felt refreshing and different from everything else out there, so I jumped on it and got it finished. It’s been going down amazingly in my sets this summer.

You and Jewel Kid come from different musical backgrounds. How did you merge your styles and approaches in this release?

It worked really easily. He’s great to work with, and we are big fans of each other’s music, so it just came together naturally. I took the idea and added my flavor to it. It was an easy collab, and that’s what it’s all about.

Congratulations on your Ushuaia Ibiza residency! How does it feel to be part of such an iconic venue?

Yes, it’s a really exciting season for Defected. It’s so different this year as it’s a daytime party, and we were at a club for many years, but it’s a new chapter.

What can attendees expect from your sets at Ushuaia this season?

I’m playing a lot of tribal and carnival vibes in my sets this summer, like “Bullerengue” and my remix of “Miamimita,” but also my tracks like “Dance To The Music” and “Big Busta.” Basically, a nice mix of uplifting vibes for the summer and daytime, which is where I feel most at home.

You have dates lined up across the globe this summer. How do you prepare for such a demanding tour schedule, and what are you looking forward to the most?

The most important thing is to try and stay healthy and fit, or it can be very difficult. I’m really looking forward to all the new places I’m going to, like the Czech Republic, Portugal, Lithuania, and Sardinia, to name a few. I’m excited to be back at Creamfields in England too, and obviously lots of trips to Ibiza!

Your previous release with Tony Romera, “Dance To The Music,” reached Beatport #1. How does it feel to achieve such success, and does it influence your approach to making new music?

Yeah, I really didn’t expect it with this record, but I was very happy. It doesn’t influence my future music, though, because I’m trying to keep things constantly changing and surprise people rather than stick to a sound or a winning formula these days.

You’ve worked with Toolroom on multiple occasions. What makes this label special to you, and how has it supported your growth as an artist?

Toolroom was actually the first label I released on digitally many years ago under my real name, so it’s always special to be back with them. They are a great team and really get behind the records.

How do you see your sound evolving in the future?

I really couldn’t say for now, only time will tell.
