Dubstep wunderkind unfurls some scene anthems
2006 | Label: Tempa / Southern Record Distributors

A scene just isn't a scene without anthems, and Skream! is full of cuts that would sound like anthems whether or not anyone was getting down to them en masse. The most obvious is "Midnight Request Line," a 2005 underground hit for obvious reasons: the blipping keyboards and tick-tick-snap beat combine to make a dynamite hook. But throughout, Skream's music balances dubstep's dark tone with brief, resonant bursts of sunshine, transmitting a giddiness that, more… read more »

Six Degrees of Rusko’s Songs

By Philip Sherburne, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

In 2006, dubstep took center stage in the U.K. and firmly knocked grime off as the underground music of the moment. At the forefront of the movement was Skream with dubstep’s signature single, “Midnight Request Line.” The straight-ahead combination of subterranean bass, reverbed drums and spooky ambiance on “Midnight Request Line” brought dubstep out of the London suburb of Croydon and onto the international scene. Skream’s first full-length follows “Midnight Request Lines” pattern and delivers stripped down dub music with just enough nods to the genre’s roots in Jamaica. Minor chords and an Upsetters’ sample from Blackboard Jungle Dub are a nice touch that helps to balance out the tinges of R&B and some weak MC’ing that seem unnecessary. At the album’s weakest point, Skream throws in some grime beats that show just how limited that genre was, and how painful the U.K.’s taste for dance beats can be. When Skream sticks to bass heavy ambient dub, there’s hope that dub can been reborn as a bedroom producer’s genre. In a way, you wish Bill Laswell would have made this album 15 years ago. Skream strips down the pretension that crept into Laswell’s records throughout the ’90s and lets the low frequencies speak for themselves. Tracks like “Rutten” show that “Midnight Request Line” wasn’t just a flash in the pan 12,” and that dubstep is a genre that can work in an album format. – Matt Whalley
