EVENT: A.SKILLZ – 31.12.13



NYE at Orange Rooms this year will be headlined A.Skillz and will feature a great selection of talent from the extended Orange Rooms friends and family circles: The Orange Rooms House Band will be performing live covers of hit songs spanning 2013 and beyond, residents from Mixtape Fridays including Alex The Kidd and the Maxin’ DJs will be playing throughout the night, and long time Orange Rooms friend Stevo will be spinning in the Bacardi Mojito Lounge upstairs.


When it comes to breaks, there are two DJs that are hard to beat: There’s Krafty Kuts and his inimitable partner in crime, A.Skillz. Since the release of their debut album “Tricka Technology” in 2003, the pair have set a standard for creatively cutting together breaks, hip-hop, funk, soul, drum and bass and electro. The pair have toured the world over both as a pair and individually, setting alight dance floors and festival arenas with their bass heavy and funk driven grooves.

Record label owner, producer and DJ extraordinaire, A.Skillz’ incredible deck talents fuse funk, soul, and hip-hop with drum and bass, dubstep, and breaks. It’s all sliced, mashed, and cut together with a unique style of scratching and mixing.

His reputation as a true party rocker has won him prime-time slots across the world at a who’s who of major events, festivals and music industry parties. Whether he’s in a club or at a festival, A.Skillz always gets the place jumpin’. As a producer A.Skillz has established himself as one of the most highly regarded in his scene, releasing countless bullets, including the infamous Insane Bangers series, a host of impressive remixes for the likes of stadium rockers Queen, dance legend Don Diablo and Northern Soul Groovers Smoove & Turrell, together with singles on the legendary Finger Lickin’ Records and of course the now classic artist album “Tricka Technology”.
