// SKEPTICAL // [ EXIT / METALHEADZ / 1985 ]
LONDON, UK...

As a DJ and producer whose natural passion for music in all its forms eventually spilled over into a full blown production habit, Skeptical has been responsible for some of the most damaging yet delicate tracks within current drum & bass.

Skeptical made his mark with Blue Eyes EP on Ingredients Records in 2011 and has since had a slew of impeccable releases on highly esteemed imprints such as Dispatch, Metalheadz, Soul:r and Exit Records. Exit Records became the home for 'Marka', a collaboration with DubPhizix and Strategy which went on to being a cross genre track and a DJ's pick for any dance floor worldwide while racking millions of views on YouTube. Most recently Skeptical's releases schedule with Exit has been steady flowing with releases such as Imperial and Outset EP. Not shy of collaborating Skeptical is 1/5 of collective group 'Module Eight' made up of producers dBridge, Kid Drama, Loxy and Resound. Module Eight is a project of likeminded producers with no real aim but to have fun making music, it has resulted in an album being released called 'Legacy'. His collaboration track 'Move Way' with dBridge was released on the legendary R&S Records and was the first drum and bass track to come out on the record label since the year 2000. His work with various labels across the globe has seen him remix tracks from a wide range of producers such as Jubei and Jamacian reggae musician Sizzla.

Skeptical who is known for his technical Djing abilities has meant he's traveled the world to places such as Europe, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Asia, his DJ sets have been heard in some of the most well known clubs and festivals worldwide.

// SP:MC // [ EXIT / TEMPA / SYSTEM ]
LONDON, UK

Making waves for over 15 years now, SP:MC has cemented himself as one of the most respected & busiest MCs on the circuit. His first break came in 2001 after the legendary MC GQ heard one of his early mixtapes [with Jubei] & made them residents at his own monthly Emcee Sessions event at Digwalls in Camden. SP has close ties with Shogun Audio [after touring extensively with Friction], & Exit Records after becoming dBridge’s MC of choice. He has also hosted events for a wide array of imprints including Renegade Hardware, Commercial Suicide, Hospital, Prototype, Bassbin, Good Looking, Metalheadz, Valve, Quarantine, Digital Soundboy, Symmetry, Soul:R, Innerground, DNAudio, Critical, Rinse, Tempa, Tectonic, Hessle Audio & 3024.

Versatility & quality control are guaranteed when SP’s in the building. He cites MCs GQ, Dynamite & Conrad as early influences. In 2003 he was nominated for ‘Best Breakthrough MC’ at the Knowledge D&B Awards. He was then nominated for ‘Best MC’ at 1Xtra’s XtraBass Awards in March 2007, & was shortlisted at the D&BArena Awards 2009-2016. In 2011, SP was crowned ‘Best MC’ at the D&BArena Awards.

His music production has also received widespread acclaim. ‘Shadow’ with Breakage & ‘Surrender’ with fellow MC Ben Verse set the standard, then ‘Trust Nobody’, released on the infamous Tempa imprint in 2008 made a serious impression. The Code 3 [consisting of long time friends SP, Jubei & Dakuan] track ‘Living Proof’ released on Exit Records in 2010, is considered by many a modern classic. 2011 saw his vocals feature on Icicle’s mighty ‘Dreadnaught’ released on Shogun Audio. Soon after, another huge 12″ landed on Tempa in the form of ‘Hunted’ [with LX One] & ‘Oh my Gosh’. His 4-track ‘Declassified E.P’ released in 2013 saw further experiments at 140bpm. In 2015 he released ‘Kingsland Dub’ another collaboration with LX One on his LP ‘Motions’ & ‘We Run Dis’ on the final Digital Soundboy LP.
