What began as a solo studio project in 1996 for British DJ/producer Richard Blair soon developed into a production and writing collaboration with Colombian songwriter Iván Benavides and has since become a full live band. Their shows have become legendary, the guarantee of a great party that starts on stage and results in a collective and euphoric experience that is genuinely contagious. sidestepper has helped transform the Colombian music scene, where the group is regarded as the originator of the current beat boom, inspiring a new generation of young beat scientists to marry Latin music with cutting-edge beats.​

[The group’s latest album] shimmers and percolates with guitars and Afro-Colombian percussion, it’s sung in Spanish and English, it looks forward constantly and, once again, it illuminates a musical path likely to influence the next generation of Colombian innovators.
