As part of Saatchi Gallery's LATES series for Sweet Harmony : Rave | Today, visitors are invited to enjoy after-hours special access to the exhibition which includes a choice of partying in our Vinyl Record Shop and Rave Room where Skream will be performing a live DJ set.
Skream is one of the UK’s best-loved selectors and has enjoyed the kind of consistency most DJs and producers can only dream of. His passion for collecting and playing music is unrelenting; disco, house, techno and everything in between.
DJing since he was 11, making music at 15 and one of the key innovators at the birth of dubstep, Skream's place in UK music history is both legendary and widely respected.
With releases like ‘Rollercoaster’ (ft. Sam Frank) and his remixes of Duke Dumont ‘Need You’ and ‘Infinity’ by Infinity Ink under his belt, Skream is not only an iconic producer, but a popular dj, who can blend a variety of genres within his set - creating unique parties wherever he plays.
Skream has never stopped pushing out music, utilising his own platform to deliver a slew of techno cuts, encompassing a range of textures; from the rugged to the emotive - including ‘Face Down In The Water’, ‘Settled’ and the mighty ‘Chronicles’ EP with Billy Turner. Elsewhere, he has signed a variety of releases to labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Dennis Ferrer’s Objectivity and We Are The Brave which unleashed his killer track ‘Poison’ in 2018. He’s also produced a constant flow of remixes for major labels like Warner, FFRR and Sony, plus some of the most influential underground outlets, including Hot Creations, Watergate, VIVa, Snatch! and lots more.
With an endless sense of creativity fuelled by the energy he gets from the dance floor - Skream is no ordinary artist and his commitment to music, and his fans, is unparalleled. “There was never any other option,” he says, and that is why he will continue to be one of the UK’s most treasured electronic music artists keeping the legacy of UK rave culture alive until the very end.
Sweet Harmony's first LATES event saw a live DJ set by Secretsundaze who frequently play at the world’s most influential clubs and festivals including Panorama Bar, The Block, Pickle Factory, Lovebox and Glastonbury.
