Skitz gained recognition as a homegrown Hip Hop producer and DJ, fusing the rawness of UK emcees with solid production and distinctively Jamaican influenced basslines. His first album Countryman won Hip Hop album of the year and catapulted rappers such as Est’elle, Roots Manuva and Skinnyman into the limelight. He has continually promoted the UK bass heavy scene worldwide, produced the first ever track played on BBC1Xtra and alongside Rodney P hosted their own flagship rap show Original Fever spreading the message accross the globe. Internationally recognised and with a deep discography of songs and remixes he has performed from Africa to Australia and everywhere inbetween.
Joe Burn has been immersed in bass culture since he was in pampers and is actually Skitz's Godson. He lived his early years in the Jamaican hills then moved to the valleys of North Devon’s and spent his childhood at festivals and parties run by the infamous southwest based ‘Sewerside’ crew. Brought up on the festival circuit, Joe Burn honed his stripes around site, dodging security and blagging off stall holders. The consequence of this background is an anti- Establishment and refreshingly conscious streak that runs through his lyrics. He has a sharp tongue and easy wit, a staccato banter and a bass heavy sound and with influences ranging from drum n bass to grime, reggae, hip hop and all aspects of UK Bass culture.
Together with a strong Reggae salute Skitz and Joe Burns guarantee to smoothly link through all the bass heavy genres with style and versatility standardly mashing up any dance.
