“10 years ago we set up our record label, fulfilling a dream we’d both had since as long as either or us can remember,” Dusky said on Instagram. “17 Steps was born as a platform for our own music and also to champion like-minded artists, both established and emerging.”

“We’re really proud to have built up the roster of artists that have graced the label with releases and remixes so far, it includes many artists we really respect and admire as well as some of our dance music heroes.”

The full V/A lands on April 5 including features from friends and family of the label, such as AIDA, J.O.S.H.U.A, Aldonna, An Avrin, Ikonika, Stones Taro, and more.
