Music promoters Muzik have revealed that Croydon-based electronic music producer Skream - aka Oliver Dene Jones - will now be heading to Code Warehouse in Sheffield for one-night-only this late November as part of his third Open to Close tour. Hailed by fans for being a pioneer of the original dubstep movement when the genre itself had a major breakthrough back in the late noughties, Jones has built a loyal following overtime since the days of his darker, UK garage-influenced sound that now boasts DJ sets that feature numerous forms of EDM such as house, drum and bass, techno and even disco when the situation calls for it.
With years of experience as a prolific artist, Skream’s commercial success also comes in the form of his electronic music group Magnetic Man, who have collaborated with the likes of Kelis, Chromeo, Katy B and John Legend. As well as remixing tracks as a solo producer for established names like La Roux and Example, one of his biggest achievements is a compilation house mix that featured on Pete Tong’s All Gone Miami 2013 release, which created a new path away from the comfort of his dubstep origins that would showcase his high-calibre skills as a DJ and push him more in the direction of mainstream house music.
Skream brings his headline show to Code Warehouse, Sheffield on Friday 30th November.
