Slowly carving a reputation into the Birmingham scene for over ten years Skudkid is something of a veteran in both DJ/producer craft and promotion; his bass branded events making their way around the city since 2009 while his interest in production lays as equally steeped in experience.
The fruits of his labour have since come to bare supporting artists of international acclaim like D:Bridge, Hybrid Minds, Turno, Hazard, Friction and more. As well as making an impact on the Birmingham landscape his performances have travelled across the country, most notably opening the UKF stage at 2017’s Forbidden Forest festival.
His keen desire to immerse himself within the scene and build integral relationships with other artists has inspired some jaw-dropping collaborations. Teaming up with agency peer, and long-time friend, Itmek the pair have proceeded to blow audiences away with their impressive live performances; frantically mixing across 5 decks and 2 mixers the DJ duo create high-octane ensembles of own productions, staple hard hitters, and classic DnB anthems.
Highly adaptable with a penchant for experimentation Skudkid’s sets and original creations cover a wide spectrum of styles, from liquid to jump-up and everything in between, topped with an infatuation for all things 170bpm.
Keen to educate too, his new YouTube series Double Drop School gives fledgling DJs insight into some of the tricks and techniques used in the DnB game while challenging those already in the scene to emulate and improve. A number of new projects, collaborations, remixes and original releases are already set for 2018 built upon one sure-fire tactic – versatility.
