The Rock Steady are a collective of musicians, producers, vocalists, and DJs from Canberra, Australia. Based around the songwriting and production work of DJs Timber and Jayo, the Rock Steady sound is a mixture of classic reggae and dub grooves, smooth soul, hip hop and drum n bass.
Active since 2009, the collective formed out of a series of Sunday afternoon dub and reggae parties hosted by members of the collective. Encompassing original tracks, remixes, and re-edits, The Rock Steady's sound is all about taking the sounds and influences of the past, and updating them with a heavy emphasis on instrumentation and live performance.
The Rock Steady have performed alongside many international heavyweights including Lotek, Sidestepper, Salmonella Dub, as well as the cream of the Aussie crop including D'Opus & Roshambo, RuC.L., and Hermitude.
