A man of many talents Skream makes a welcomed debut on the mighty Crosstown Rebels ahead of his album on the imprint later this year. The epic 'Still Lemonade' includes a remix from the mysterious Redshape.
"Still Lemonade was the first track I finished in a long time that felt completely happy with and ready to play out. I didn't tell anyone it was by me when I first started playing it and the reaction was explosive. It gets one of the biggest reaction in my sets and is a perfect example of the direction I'm taking with my productions." Skream.
A masterpiece for the peak time dancefloor, "Still Lemonade" sees melodic and emotive synthlines flow over rolling percs with a powerful breakdown and build destined to make the crowd erupt. Over on the flip Redshape adds a grumble in the bassline, playing with the track for an intricate and subtle build but keeping in line with the original it soon progresses into a high intensity dancefloor bomb.
Londoner Oliver Jones AKA Skream is off to a flying start in 2015, working on his Crosstown LP, curating his own nights at XOYO for three months on a weekly basis and continuing his popular radio 1 show where he covers everything from disco to techno. Starting out as one of dubstep's first most prominent and prolific producers, he then went on to achieve commercial success and critical acclaim with Magnetic Man alongside Artwork and Benga reaching no.5 in the UK Album Chart and reaching no.10 in the UK Singles Chart.
Living in Berlin, Redshape is a man of mysterious identity wearing a red mask for all of his shows. His impressive live act has seen him play at the likes of DC10 and Panorama Bar and releases can be found on Delsin, Music Man and Styrax Leaves.
