Hot Steppa Productions has emerged as a new leader in music and event production. With headquarters in Los Angeles and Jamaica, we collaborate with all genres of entertainers, artists, and sound systems, while honoring the foundation and legends of reggae music.

The vision for Hot Steppa began in St. Thomas, Jamaica, in 2014, when Phil Hot Steppa (CEO/DJ/Executive Producer) and Marcus Chong (A&R/Producer) envisioned a project combining a sound system, record label, apparel line, and event production. Their goal was to create a platform that supports selected artists by managing their marketing and producing music and videos. Additionally, they aimed to provide the necessary infrastructure for events, and merch and apparel sales to fund creative endeavors.

In 2021, Phil and DJ Tetris (DJ/Producer) officially launched the Hot Steppa Sound System, a party sound rooted in Reggae and Dancehall, enriched with Afrobeats, Hip Hop, and Pop. Hot Steppa LLC was established in LA, featuring an iconic 1966 Step Van as a mobile sound system, solidifying their reputation as a premier reggae sound in the city. DJ Sadeki was chosen to represent Hot Steppa Sound in St. Thomas, Jamaica, marking the start of their journey.

In 2018, Marcus connected Phil with Tuff Like Iron (Artist/Producer/Marketing/Apparel). Tuff became the first featured artist on Hot Steppa Records, releasing two singles, "Roll Out" and “Sometimeish”, in 2023. Her "Unbreakable" album, executive produced by Phil Hot Steppa, is set for release in summer 2024.  Ky-Enie King and Goldy Bad Lion joined the artist roster in 2023, bringing their talents as singers, producers, and engineers to the mix, with upcoming releases planned for both artists.

Kali Madden (DJ/Interviewer/Communications) joined the team in 2022, bringing her communications and project management skills. In 2023, Yungg Tripp (DJ/Producer) joined as a DJ and in-house producer, enhancing the team's capabilities with his extensive artist and road management experience.

In 2024 Phil moved to Ocho Rios to establish the business in Jamaica.   With a new head office in St Anns Bay, a production studio in Kingston, and our original Los Angeles home base.  Hot Steppa is now fully active.  The brand has a number of  events and releases on the way.  Contact us to book your next event or festival!
