Favorite two-step tracks/artists?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

As somewhat of a soul newbie I'm strill struggling a bit with soul subgenre classification, but apparenly I love what's referred to as two step soul or "steppers". I'm not really a dancer but I guess it's that smooth, laidback and funky sound I'm looking for.

Anyways, feel free to share one or a couple of your favorite tracks/45s or if there are any specifik artists I really should dig into.

A couple of examples that I really dig are Jeffree - Loves gonna last, Paris - I choose you, Keni Burke - Risin to the top.

Any tips will be much appreciated!

A lot of misconceptions on what a 2 step record is . They are slow tunes not midtempo with walking basslines . The original scene was made up of records that were played at reggae functions / blues party's and fitted in with that tempo . The 45's below represent some of type that were played -

Keith Barrow / You know you want to be loved

Rita Wright / Touch me , take me

Josie James / Win your love
