Happynovisad Stage / Sunday, July 15 2012
Influenced by sounds coming from the system at Big Apple Records, where he was working, Ollie Jones started making music when he was 15. Five years later, under his unique alias Skream, Ollie becomes a key figure in reshaping the British music scene, adding his input to the development of Dubstep. "Midnight Request Line" released in 2006 was the first track that pulled Dubstep up from the darkest underground to the centre of mass attention. After remixing for Hot Chip and Klaxons, as well as releasing two influential albums, Skream once again proves his readiness for a big auditorium with his remix for "In For The Kill" by La Roux, which immediately became a worldwide dancefloor hit. The most logical step in the British youngster’s career was forming the supergroup Magnetic Man, together with two other significant names in the Dubstep world, Benga and Artwork.
Skream will be joined by SGT Pokes, the MC responsible for running the powerful project - DMZ.
