Skream, along with Oneman, are flying across the pond to make a stop at Boston’s Middle East club this Wednesday night and we here at MMIBTY have your last-minute opportunity to win a free pair of tickets. For all those not paying attention out there, this ain’t your momma’s Skream. No longer are the days when 27-year-old Oliver Jones, better known as Skream, is teaming up with fellow UK artist Benga for Dubstep and Drum n’ Bass. Skream has reinvented himself as a Nu-Disco connoisseur, producing and spinning some of the funkiest beats out there. As evidenced by one of Skream’s latest tracks “Rollercoaster” and his May mix, both for your listening pleasure below, Skream has taken his sounds in a new direction. Though I saw perhaps one of the last Skream & Benga sets for a while on Holy Ship earlier this year (and it was pretty great), I can say with full confidence that Skream’s solo performances are spot-on thanks to the head-bobbin’ and feet-movin’ set he laid down at Electric Zoo 2013. And if you really don’t think Skream can bring the funk, maybe you should ask Eats Everything, Seth Troxler, and Ben Pearce – all of whom played a B2B set with Skream in Ibiza this Summer.
Tickets are still on sale for this 18+ show on Wednesday night, presented by our friends at Crush! Boston. If you like Deep House, Nu-Disco, UK Garage, and Indie Dance, this will be a night you MUST attend. Our contest runs til Wednesday afternoon so enter, tell your friends to enter, and good luck!
*By the way, that May mix is AWESOME. Turn it up in your headphones, tracklist after the jump!*
