Skream began his involvement in the music-industry during his mid-teens, working at Big Apple Records while mixing and recording his own tracks at home. He works closely with fellow artist Benga, who is one of the members of their dubheroes ‘Magnetic Man’ band. They frequently record and play live sets together, describing their process as a ‘creative competition’ between the two. Together they both credit ‘Digital Mystikz‘ as being a major influence, speaking of Mala & Coki as founding fathers of the dubstep genre.
His second album in 2010 titled ‘Outside the Box’ found more moderate success, giving us ambient melodies that ‘Perforated’ provides, yet balancing it with wonderfully scattered tracks like ‘Fields of Emotion’.
Skream’s solo track ‘Filth’, a favourite of his because of the hard to copy bass-line.
