Keep your ears peeled for an eclectic mix of funky beats and leftfield treats Heavy Steppin is a Manchester based music blog maintained by two close friends who share a passion for music.


Carl Sadd aka ‘Jim’ll Mix It’s first stop on the road to musical enlightenment came in the form of the Hacienda in the mid-90’s at he tail end of Manchester’s hedonistic Acid House scene. What followed was a journey through numerous genres of dance music but found his obsession with old skool hip-hop, turntablism and all things beat orientated.
