Having been a major player in the bass scene for the past five years, SKisM’s technical prowess and energy on his 4 deck setup has gained him notoriety as one of the busiest and most electrifying mixers on the circuit and he has toured the world time and time again.
Since his rise to power in 2009, SKisM has collaborated and remixed some of the biggest names in the business including Flux Pavilion, Excision, Foreign Beggars, Zomboy, Porter Robinson & Hadouken! His productions have racked up over 14 millions views on YouTube alone.
As co-owner and A&R of one of the most prolific labels in electronic, Never Say Die, as well as its sister label No Tomorrow, SKisM has had a hand in bringing some of the freshest music to the masses. He is constantly championing the sounds of the acts on both labels such as Zomboy, Far Too Loud, Eptic, BAR9, LAXX and MUST DIE!
2013 saw the release of a remix EP of his classic track ‘Elixir’ – with Megalodon, Skeptics and Karetus all stepping up to rework it alongside a VIP from the man himself. The label celebrated their 50th Never Say Die release in December, with The Prototypes remix of SKisM’s iconic ‘Experts’ featured on Never Say Die Fifty.
Kicking off 2014 with a huge US tour in the form of ‘Rage By The Pound’, SKisM is currently playing over a period of six weeks and visiting a total of twenty-two cities.
::::: Bar9 :::::
BAR9 are something of a formidable force in the Dubstep scene. Ollie and Martin burst onto the scene in 2008, with early works such as ‘Midnight’ and ‘Untitled Symphony’ grabbing attention across the globe.
Their unmistakably polished level of production was soon in high demand, as they delivered a series of remixes for the likes of Example, Nero, Foreign Beggars and Noisia to name a few. 2013 saw them sign to Never Say Die, first releasing ‘1983’ on the label’s compilation album in association with UKF.
They then assembled a high-caliber collection in the form of their ‘The Lost Dubs’ EP – which gave fans the chance to get hold of some of the pair’s classic sounds, including the mammoth ‘Piano Tune VIP’. In December, BAR9 boldly moved forward with ‘Brave New World’; an EP of fresh material including a collaboration with Datsik that smashed the Beatport Dubstep charts.
A remix for Resistance just out and the brand new 'NEXUS-6' dropping 17th March, BAR9 are ready to continue dominating the bass scene in 2014 and no doubt have another thrilling year ahead.
::::: Citron :::::
Originally a native of Jerusalem / Israel, Citron has become regionally known for cooking up a scrumptious blend of multi-cultural sounds served on a bed of booty shaking bass.
Holding a number of weekly residencies since 2000, Citron’s style has evolved into an edgy combination of Phsychodelic Bass, Grime, UK Funky, Fidget & Multi-cultural Tech House with hints of hip Hop and Reggae.
A little something for all you bass heads out there!
Citron has been been part of festivals such as Trinumeral and Gnarnia and has added his Theme / Sound camps to burns across the nation.
He has shared stages with DJ Shadow, Steve Aoki, The Crystal Method, Kaskade, Modeselektor among many others.
