Iration Steppas are one of the top dubwise outfits in the world, initially starting out as a soundsystem in the 90’s focusing primarily on spinning dubplates before venturing into their own productions.
Following in the footsteps of the sound systems that inspired him, Mark Iration, with partner Dennis Rootical, has moulded and crafted a very personal Iration Steppas vibe, a particular style that has grown to be internationally recognised as one of the best on the block.
Mark’s initial involvement in the sound system world was purely as a fan following the likes of Jah Shaka and Jah Tubbys back in the late 70’s and throughout the 80’s. Like any real music lover he collected vinyl and got into DJ-ing, but it took the encouragement of a number of close friends until he started to put together his own system in 1990. Around the same time he also began to make music in his own studio, High Rise, culminating in two well-received debut releases ‘Scud Missile’ and ‘High Rise Vibrations’.
The have two solo albums to their credit been ‘Original Dub Dat’ which was released back in 1996 and ‘Dubz From De Higher Regionz’ from 2004. These albums showcase Iration Steppas year 3000 style steppers dub.
