A fabulous instrumental set from Stepper.

Sampler

Stepper Takes The TaxiFrench saxophone player Guillaume Briard, aka Stepper, has worked with a veritable who's who in the Jamaican music industry. His main business today is however being an official member of acclaimed Jamaican riddim duo Sly & Robbie's band the Taxi Gang.The riddim twins have now opened their music vaults (jam-packed with immortal riddims and backing tracks) for him to record over for his own debut album 'Stepper Takes the Taxi', a set also including a number of brand new riddims.

Stepper has chosen his riddims with gentle care. They're bubbling, bouncy and lively and exquisitely mixed by French mixing engineer Fabwise. Stepper blows his saxophone tenderly and creates beautiful melodies over the sometimes haunting backing tracks.

There are too few instrumental albums released these days, which makes this effort a welcome addition to a sometimes overlooked and forgotten part of reggae music.

'Stepper Takes the Taxi' is now available on digital platforms and will also be made available on CD.

Ps. Don't miss the hidden dub cut on the last track.
