The man who pioneered a genre and then gradually weened off of it is making waves with this new sound and style. The London dweller known as Skream took the world over through his sub-rattling sounds for most of his career, but now, with a new sound in mind, is delivering the same quality that we saw from his dubstep days.
This new one is unbelievable; there’s no denying it. Is this what Random Access Memories should have sounded like? Skream premiered the track last night during Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show and it was appropriately premiered as the ‘Hottest Record in the World’. Skream is seriously channelling some Chromeo and Daft Punk with the beautfiul vocoder use, but he’s also tipping his hat to disco originals with the squeaky synths and rolling basslines. Skream brings along long-time collaborator Sam Frank for another track.
