Love it or hate it, Skream has traversed a wide variety of genres, from grime, dubstep, disco, house and most recently techno. His eclectic taste has seen him tour across the globe, acquiring fans with different tastes and different backgrounds.
Skream’s unpredictability has made him one of the most enticing DJs on the planet. You can never be 100 per cent sure what he will pull out of the bag, or what element of drama he’ll bring – take his notorious House of Vans Boiler Room, for example, where he ambushed the audience with House and Disco records before handing out the DJ equipment to fans and stage diving into the crowd.
Ultimately, one thing is guaranteed – Skream’s pure charismatic performances, connection with the crowd and knowledge of what journey to take them on is second to none. Always doing and playing exactly what he wanted to.
