Stepa

Clunkers and the mysteries of existence

Stepa is a young man from Sodankylš, Northern Finland who raps equally about clunkers and partying as well as the multifaceted mysteries of life and existence. Stepa draws from the spoken word tradition of hiphop and adapts the expressive and cultural characteristics of American rap music to fit the world of a small town Laplander. This all results in music may be entertaining play on words at one moment and touching contemplation of life the next; the kind that makes even the most robust of men to get his momma a rose bouquet.

Naiset ("Women"), a song from the debut album released in 2008, became a surprise club hit all around Finland and raised Stepa from the underground into the wider awareness. Active touring, both alone and together with more experienced troupers, has made Stepa also an extremely pleasant live performer. We suggest you check him out.
