Steam Down is an artist collective, weekly event and music community based in Deptford, South-East London.
Founded by multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Ahnansé in May 2017, the initial event was created to connect London based musicians and producers. Since then it has evolved into a weekly event where Steam Down artists and its extended musical family generate spontaneous sonic soundscapes reflecting their lives in the city.
Steam Down have sold out shows at the Jazz Cafe, The Albany, Village Underground and performed at festivals including Maiden Voyage, Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here Festival, Love Supreme, Glastonbury’s Park Stage and Bogotá’s renowned Jazz Al Parque Festival. The collective have also supported Sampa The Great on Jools Holland and headlined Boiler Room’s Festival alongside Afronaut Zu, Nubya Garcia, and Charlotte Dos Santos. They have released two singles ‘Free My Skin’ and ‘Etcetera’.
Steam Down are the recipients of two Jazz FM awards including The Innovation Award sponsored by Mishcon de Reya and Live Experience of the Year Award sponsored by Yamaha UK featuring Kamasi Washington.
