Skream's new vid

PeteUM

It's all grist
Skream's career depresses the fuck out of me. At least Wiley is pissing his talent away in an occasionally entertaining way.
 

mms

sometimes
yeah its weak and the magneticman single sounds exactly like its been scientifically designed to please the gatekeepers at radio one and their silly sonic fetishes, which is a fairly gutless and cynical thing to do on the whole if thats what the plan is.

RE: the video, I always assumed it was gonna be a young skream listening to the records on his wall, learning to produce then DJ and just generally growing up. like a bildungsroman kinda thing. apparently the story of genesis was more fitting.

thought the same thing too :(

think it's a reference to Hijak's jungle collection though, not his...

Big up Skream regardless, he's put in the work.
yeah, i'm not sure that i get on board with a skream backlash. "records on my wall" works pretty well when played out, and yeah, he's worked on a couple of really commercial-sounding tracks, but so what? he's done a lot more good tracks than lame ones, gives some of them away free, and his rinse shows with benga can be pretty hilarious. imho.

yeah it seems a bit pointless to resent his mainstream stuff really.. he was making amazing FWD>> music when he was 15 ffs! best just to let him get on with it and try and avoid his chart focused stuff as much as possible

yeah i was just talkin about the video, still a massive skream fan and despite the commercial stuff, which i personally don't mind, it isn't like hes only making those kinda tunes. Also it isn't like I'll forget the older tunes.

The 'records on my wall' thing has confused me for a while - who has records on their wall apart from those cages that I think i've seen somewhere? the gold disc thing could make sense. I assumed it was old jungle records (yeah, Hijack's) cos of the break

yeah, just to be clear: despite liking skream, i do think the "records" video is pretty cringy.
