Sidestepper is a Colombian band formed in 1996 by English DJ/producer Richard Blair and Colombian singer-songwriter and producer Iván Benavides. The group is one of the originators of the Colombian "electro cumbia" sound, influenced both by Afro-Colombian popular music styles like salsa and cumbia as well as electronic dance music such as dub and drum and bass. Sidestepper has featured a number of guest vocalists and musicians over the years who have since become well-known artists in their own right in Colombia, such as drummer Kike Egurrola, Gloria "Goyo" Martínez of ChocQuibTown, and Humberto Pernett. Since 2009 the line-up has comprised vocalists Janio Coronado, Edgardo Garcés and Érika Muñoz, guitarist Teto Ocampo, drummer Pedro Ojeda, percussionist El Chongo, and Blair on bass/keyboards/programming.
In 2004 they played at the Coachella Music Festival in the United States.
