Biography

With explosive stage presence, intoxicating rhymes and an unmistakable voice, Skrein is steadily building a reputation for himself as Britains hungriest MC. Touted by Choice FMs DJ 279 as one to watch for 2006, 2007 is set for the takeover. Skreins music ranges from eccentric to socially conscious, heart-warming to downright hilarious, playfully adapting his style to suit tracks conceptually as well as musically.

Skrein cut his teeth in the underground scene with his Underground Alliance (UNDALI) and Foreign Beggars, staying on the cutting edge of the UK urban scene collaborating with Taskforce, Skinnyman, Plan B, Jehst, Doc Brown, Dr Syntax, Dubbledge and Shameless over production from Ghost Town, Jimmy Wha Gwaan, DJ IQ and Dag Nabbit.

Skrein has left his mark firmly on the underground Hip-Hop circuit, performing alongside the cream of the countrys talent, touring overseas and supporting such well-known US acts as The Beatnuts, Maseo (De Le Soul) and DJ Numark (Jurrassic 5), tearing up shows from Cambridge to Sevilla, Scotland to Oslo, Ibiza to Poland, Glastonbury 2005 to his hometown of London.

Best remembered for his standout appearance on the Foreign Beggars album Asylum Speakers, Skreins solo ventures (Mind Out 12” & Idols 7”) have all achieved critical acclaim and mainstream radio play. His videos for Mind Out and The Youth have also received heavy rotation on Channel U.
