Featured UK Artist – Skream
After making some huge waves with his remix of La Roux “In for the Kill,” Skream has been hard at work. His second full album was released not too long ago on Aug. 9th via Tempa Records and once again Skream comes correct, this time with more than just wobbles. In his new album keenly named Outside the Box, Skream literally does just that. From collaborations with L.A.-based rapper MURS to a new jam with La Roux you know you can’t pass up a good listen to this album. It works 8-Bit, Dubstep, and straight up experimental styles. It is obvious Skream is willing to push the boundaries of the Dubstep style to see what magic he can mix together. I find most of the tracks are very chill and not as hard as most Dubstep albums I’ve heard in the last 2-3 years. This has to be one of my favorite albums this year. Definitely one to bob your head to till the end of 2010. If you’re in the Los Angeles area or even near CA you should try to make it out to Nocturnal Festival to see Skream perform this weekend. You don’t want to miss out on this one.

One of my favorite tracks on this album is “Where You Should Be” featuring Sam Frank. It looks like we may be seeing a lot more of Skream teaming up with vocalist Sam Frank very soon…
