Iration Steppas + MyLord Sound Free Before 8, £5 Pounds After


Ready Fox Reggae have lined up a full force dub extravaganza to kick off your weekend courtesy of the legendary Iration Steppas and My Lord Sound!

♬♬ Iration Steppas Official ♬♬

Following in the footsteps of the sound systems that inspired him, Mark Iration, with partner Dennis Rootical, has moulded and crafted a very personal Iration Steppas vibe, a particular style that has grown to be internationally recognised as one of the best on the block.

Mark's initial involvement in the sound system world was purely as a fan following the likes of Jah Shaka and Jah Tubbys back in the late 70's and throughout the 80's. Like any real music lover he collected vinyl and got into DJ-ing, but it took the encouragement of a number of close friends until he started to put together his own system in 1990. Around the same time he also began to make music in his own studio, High Rise, culminating in two well-received debut releases 'Scud Missile' and 'High Rise Vibrations'.

However, it wasn't until he met Dennis Rootical back in 1993 that the Iration Steppas as we know them now were born. They met at a night called House of Roots down in London and very quickly realised that they were into each other's sound.

This newly united duo began to record together, creating the quintessential techno-tinged dub sound that we now associate with the Iration Steppas. Releases such as 'Killimanjaro' and 'Reminiscence' affirmed that the Steppas were here to stay".

The Iration Steppas now had a following of their own, and from the responses they got from their peers and their crowds they discovered that their sound system and the music they were making was inspiring others to do the same, much to Mark's delight: "For Iration Steppas to inspire people to build sound systems and build music, bwoy, it's a great honour because I know how they feel. That's how I got inspired - through a lot of other sound systems way back in them days, so I know what kind of feeling they are going through."

♬♬ MyLord Sound ♬♬

Hailing from Tel Aviv / Israel is Rub-A-Dub addict and ram jam master keeping the Rub A Dub flame burning into the new era. After his excellent track "New York Boogie" on Scotch Bonnett last year Ranking Levy is back with "Mad Man Style" on Maffi's Robotron riddim for our Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 3 compilation, with much more to come!

MyLord started in early 2004, and is continually bringing the foundation related sound to Israel since then - from country to town, from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, from the desert to the mountains, outdoors and indoors - with artists like Sister Nancy, Ranking Joe, Echo Minott, General Levy, Brother Culture, Mungo's Hi Fi many more, taking part in festivals and sound system sessions locally and internationally.

My Lord is not only a sound but also a graphic art & design establishment, where Ranking Levy is the concept designer and Ellen is the artist and painter, producing one jaw dropping cover, flyer and poster after the other - like the cover for Solo Banton's "Music Addict EP" or Mungo's Hifi's "Forward Ever" compilation.
