Stepping Into a New Age: 1980-2012 is an anthology set of the group that launched the On-U Sound label with the first album and single. New Age Steppers were a collective with an evolving line-up, built around the driving forces of Ari Up (The Slits) and producer Adrian Sherwood.

Their records featured contributions from several singers and players from the UK post-punk vanguard such as the Pop Group, The Raincoats and The Flying Lizards; colliding with established movers from the reggae world such as Bim Sherman, Style Scott and George Oban.

Stepping Into a New Age: 1980-2012 contains the following discs: New Age Steppers (1981), Action Battlefield (1981), Foundation Steppers (1983), Love Forever (2012) and Avant Gardening (a new compilation of rare dubs, version excursions and unreleased tracks from the vault), plus a 32-page book containing photos, ephemera and a new sleeve notes by Oli Warwick that trace the history of the group via conversations with Adrian Sherwood and other contributors.
