We're excited to help share the sounds IA has pressed to vinyl with the help of Stepney's daughters. The collection features recently unearthed demos, home recordings, and compositional sketches from the producer/arranger, whose career includes working with Earth Wind & Fire, Ramsey Lewis, Deniece Williams, The Emotions and many more.
AGS will have limited copies of Step On Step on black vinyl for sale.
From the good people at International Anthem:
"For our grand finale, we're going global. We've connected with independent record shops and music appreciation spaces in 40 cities worldwide to organize Charles Stepney listening parties, where local selectors in each location will play tracks from Step on Step in between records from Stepney's vast catalog of productions, arrangements, compositions, and samples. Some parties will take place in a busy record store, some in a club over drinks. Most events will take place this weekend, around the album’s release date September 9th. Curators, DJs, and Record Shop People in each community will take the concept and make it their own. Whatever the expression, each event will be unified by an admiration of Stepney and his work."
