Real name, Oliver Jones, Skream’s musical career started out working in South London record store, Big Apple, as a teenager. Thanks to his involvement with the store and frequently DJ slots at FWD>>, Jones found himself at the epicenter of the developing dubstep scene. 2011 would see Skream and Benga take over Radio 1’s prestigious In New DJs We Trust slot a testament to he and his frequent collaborator’s influence. Along with Artwork and Benga, Skream would receive critical and commercial success as Magnetic Man. Skream, however soon sought a change of pace from the enormous festival and arena shows that came with his global status. This led Jones to launch the Skreamizm brand, initiated as a series of intimate club venues, in which he’d play extended sets, defying any previous labels applied to him. Accordingly it wouldn’t be much to expect Jones to be right at home behind the decks in Junk’s famous island booth.
