The Last Skeptik
From his 2013's fantastically diverse, cinematic solo debut entitled ‘Thanks For Trying’ released on BBE Records, DJ, producer and composer The Last Skeptik has continued on a genre defying journey through electronic music and beyond. Following in the footsteps of J Dilla and Pete Rock, Skeptik took it leftfield, adding an orchestra of musicians over neck-snapping hip hop production, and has been lauded by press, fans and radio alike. Recent years have seen Skeptik tour around globe, have mixes on rotation on Noisey, BBC1xtra, DefJam.com and BBC Radio One, and release a video for every song from ‘Thanks For Trying’ (16 original videos in total), as well as composing the soundtrack to BAFTA nominated short film ‘Island Queen’, Vice Magazine’s documentary on Atlanta Stripclubs, and an adverts for Adidas, Puma, Powerade and Reebok, and on BBC’s coverage of the 2012 Olympics.
2014 has seen Skeptik unleash his highly anticipated ‘I Don’t Even Like You’ E.P on BBE Records, alongside his 9 piece live band show, and writing, remixing and producing for a bevy of artists such as Gorillaz, Grouplove, Scrufizzer, Trim, Dream Mclean and FEMME, with the latter two being the sole guests on this brilliant new E.P. Already supported by the likes of MTV, SBTV, Noisey and BBC Radio One (Huw Stephens and MistaJam).
Add to that scene stealing DJ sets around the world, from Coachella to SXSW and supporting Charli XCX on her U.S tour and beyond, and DJaying for Femme and Doc Brown (djing for his live comedy show) as well as opening up shows for the likes of 2Chainz, Childish Gambino, Wu Tang Clan, and Zero 7.
