Fans of cheap racial stereotyping will be disappointed to learn that here is a Russian dancehall artist who has passed up the opportunity to call himself Boris Banton and perform a po-faced, half-cut turn over an offbeat balilaika-powered riddim. Fans of good dancehall on the other hand will be pleased to find a rather decent Dirty Dubsters reggae version of See The World album-cut No Sound. It’s the reassuringly Jamaican-sounding Steppa Style of course with his first single of 2015. Also features the dnb original and a 6Blocc dnb remix.
