Steam Down

Sunday 14 November 2021

Steam Down is a collective, a weekly night, and a genuine movement. Formed in May of 2017, the project was born out of Ahnansé’s desire to reconnect to a community: fractured not only by endless touring, but the forces of gentrification and censure threatening the arts across the capital.

Lacking a stable and collaborative space in which such creativity could flourish, Ahnansé chose simply to make his own: in Steam Down’s case, their musical Mecca proved to be a railway arch bar in South London, soon home to a frenzied, weekly jam-night infamous for its opportunity for reflection, release…and a lot of sweat. Steam Down has since become the bedrock for a community of all ages, one in which culture was at the foreground, genre was demystified, and pretentiousness was left at the door.
