DHP Presents...

Steam Down have announced details of a UK headline tour for late 2021. The hugely influential London collective recently released the acclaimed ‘EMPOWER’, ahead of their debut ‘Five Fruit’ EP (out on September 24th via Decca). 

After years of building a truly engaged community – and taking London’s melting-pot to the world’s stage – ‘EMPOWER’ marks a thrilling new musical chapter for Steam Down. Uplifting, urgent and emotive, the track affirms the power of the listener, the strength of collective hopefulness, and the textures of London’s inner-city subculture. Featuring the fast-paced verses of Tinyman and Afronaut Zu (alongside Theon Cross, who has played with Kano and Sons of Kemet), here is a sound that bridges grime with jazz, and turns it all into something unmistakably Steam Down.

In Steam Down founder Ahnansé’s words, ‘EMPOWER’ “is all about manifesting confidence, and fortifying yourself in the knowledge that you have the power to overcome, persist and achieve in the face of any adversity you may be dealing with.” It is, too, a conceptual entry-point to Steam Down’s ‘Five Fruit’ EP, which chronicles “changing from the inside out: one emotional state at a time. We are currently living in an unprecedented time, dealing with a global pandemic, political injustice and social unrest. Through times like these we have to change and adapt, and ‘EMPOWER’ is here to aid that inner transformation.”
