Dubstep pioneer Skream takes the party with him wherever he goes, which is good news for the good people of Darlington, who will receive a visit from the Londoner on Saturday 10th December.
Known for his relentless devotion to the dance, Oliver Jones has become one of the foremost figures in UK dance music over the last decade thanks to his alias Skream, with which he has released countless striking tracks and a genre-defining debut LP, which included the hit track “Midnight Request Line”. More used to playing huge venues like The Warehouse Project, he’ll be heading to the lesser known Darlington club Inside Out this winter, gracing the venue alongside Callum Till, James Burton and more as guests of MusicMatters. Unquestionably one of the largest bookings that Darlington has enjoyed in recent years, the night will see Skream in fine form, amidst a tour that has seen him fine tuning his art with a series of night-long sets.
Having been one of the founding fathers of the Croydon dubstep scene that took the UK by storm in the early to mid noughties, Skream has earned himself deity status among bass chasers all over, and in a town not known for its electronic dance scene, to have him play must be considered a major coup. Darlington residences should be jumping at the chance to get on this one.
