Sidestepper: More Grip

Richard Blaire was a rising producer in the UK when he took a fateful detour to Colombia. There, in the intense urban night life of Bogotá, he fell in love with Salsa. Under the nom-de-club “Sidestepper”, Blaire has wed the exuberance of Salsa to the throbbing undercurrents of British club music to create a record that is at once dark, danceable, and ecstatic.
