Skream, Joker and Plastician Tour


Croydon’s original bass trailblazer Skream leads the charge, and as one of the genre’s forerunners, throwing dubstep onto the mainstage with anthemic tunes such as Midnight Request Line. Since breaking onto the scene in 2006 with a stellar self-titled debut, he’s teamed up with Benga and Artwork to form the powerhouse act Magnetic Man, scored himself a weekly slot on BBC Radio One playing out the best of new and emerging electronica, and swung by Australia for a tour here and there – last time was alongside old mate Benga for the Summadayze circuit on New Year’s Day, and if their set there was anything to go by, we can expect nothing but floor-shaking bangers from the pioneer himself. Along with Skream will be fellow Croydon native and BBC favourite Plastician, as well as Bristol young-gun Joker, named 2009’s “king of bass music” by XLR8R and one of Hyperdub’s finest.
