Following a mysterious marketing campaign that involved random telephone numbers being Tweeted and numerous billboards plastered around London, XOYO have announced that Skream will be hosting their first residency for 2015.
You’ll be pleased to know that Skream isn’t holding back with some of the guests he’s drafting in for this residency either. Artwork, Evan Baggs, Route94, Jasper James, DJ EZ, Slimzee, Wookie, Hijak, Eats Everything & more artists than you can shake a leg at have been drafted in for this all out party.
But the thing that’s caught my eye the most is the announcement of a special one off Dubstep night, called ‘Skream Presents: 2001-2005’. Very little is being said about the line up, but there is plenty of speculation as to who’s gonna be joining Skream on the night. His Twitter did in fact mention that some ‘close friends’ will be joining him.. Benga? Mala? Coki? Loefah? Unfortunately no one knows as the line up is being announced on the night.
Regardless of who’s going to be performing that night, it’s gonna be one for the books. Although Skream has since moved on from Dubstep, he remains one of the pioneers of the scene. Hearing of this forthcoming special night has made me want to dig out some of the best of Skreams old Dubstep tracks; that although don’t all come from the 2001-2005 era, represent what Skream has done for the scene. Spark up and enjoy.
From back when Skream was producing a more Grimey type of track, under his first producing alias ‘Mr. Keaz/Keas’. Bad.
