Internationally renowned DJ, pioneering producer, label head and artist manager – these are the job titles that summarize SKisM’s illustrious career since blasting onto the dubstep scene in 2009.
As one of the forefathers of heavy dubstep, he has collaborated with and remixed the likes of
Flux Pavilion, Excision, Zomboy, Porter Robinson and The Foreign Beggars, whilst his back
catalogue of originals is punctuated with classics such as ‘Rave Review’ and ‘Like This’. The
seminal concept track ‘Experts’, which was accompanied by the video that infamously rocked
the internet in 2012, continues to be referenced as his greatest musical contribution to the
genre, and arguably the best music video within it to date. Known to his peers as the ‘Dj’s Dj’, SKisM’s technical prowess and energy on four decks has cemented his name as one of the busiest and most electrifying DJ’s on the circuit, and has seen him continually tour the globe over the past 5 years. His mixes gain almost as much, if not more attention than his tracks, and his inimitable ‘Double Drop’ style whips dance floors into a frenzy wherever he plays.
As a scene leader, SKisM is constantly pushing things forward through his award winning
record label Never Say Die Records. Both the founding father and sole A&R, he has brought
some of the most exciting artists in bass music to the masses, such as Zomboy, Eptic, MUST
DIE! and rising star LAXX (with whom he collaborated with on his most recent Beatport chart
topping single ‘Hostile’). Poised once again to take things up a notch, 2015 has seen the hugely successful launch of the ‘Black Label’ imprint with the first in a series of XL compilation albums, picked and mixed by the man himself.
UK-born producer/DJ Rikki Moore, aka Trampa, has positioned himself as one of the leading dubstep producers of his generation with relentlessly heavy and gritty productions. He first garnered the attention of industry heavyweights after numerous impressive releases through Never Say Die Record’s Black Label. The quickly rising producer topped the Beatport Dubstep charts in 2015 with his ground-breaking ‘Consciousness’ EP followed by “Black Hole,” his collaboration with Never Say Die label boss SKisM, and his remix of Excision & The Frim’s “X Up,” both which have achieved over 1 million plays on Spotify alone. The colossal success of these releases paved a path forward for his 2016 ‘Bulldozer’ EP. 2017 has already seen the release of his remix with Eptic of Zomboy’s “Get With The Program,” which has reached almost 2.8 million combined streams, his remix for Borgeous, Riggi & Piros and Lil Jon’s “Savage,” and his original “Rocket Fuel” via NSD Black Label. With a bright future ahead and a growing loyal fan base, this Black Label standard bearer is marching towards global domination.
