After unfortunately dealing with group members living far away from each other, STEP1 have recently found their feet together and have now been able to mesh their lives into the same space on ‘Came Thru‘.
STEP1 are a hip-hop influenced collective from Northern Virginia in the USA, who have beaten the odds to stay together as childhood friends, and make that thoughtfully eloquent real music that is about surviving this wild world, with your sense of humor firmly intact.
Sometimes in life the eyes light up when you see someone, or this could happen when they see you. This is all about keeping those amazing memories close, never thinking of tomorrow as you want to live for tonight and be young for a few hours, as this crazy world can age you quickly otherwise.
With a smartly meshed fusion of hip-hop, funk, soul, and dance elements, they expertly make that original type of music that you can’t compare them with, their unique style sets them apart from the rest with a bustling beat, that has you feeling inspired to reconnect with old friends and talk about the good old days.
‘Came Thru‘ from North Virginia’s underground group STEP1, makes you feel like there is hope out there if you look for it hard enough under the snow and with minimal light, as you bravely keep your electric energy alive while determinedly following your dreams for a better life.
