Steady are the result of the collaboration between friends Dan Lambert and Tom Guest. Their first track ‘Alarming Frequency’, was the very first release on Tru Thoughts.
Alarming Frequency was a hit with beat heads across the country. Not only was it used by Mr Thing as his opening track for the 100+ dates of the DJ Vadim tour the track was licensed to John Stapleton’s Dope On Plastic compilation at the wrong speed (it’s at 33rpm not 45rpm!). Even the B side ‘Tricknology’ was picked up and used as the trailer music to Channel 4’s The Hip Hop Years. The boy’s contacts at MTV lead them to a video tape of the World’s hip hop impresario’s talking over their longstanding relationship with their favourite sneakers for their ‘Sneaker Culture 12 on Tru Thoughts.
