Predominantly known as hip hop producer, DJ and composer; Skeptik’s list of projects is varied and impressive. Having opened for Childish Gambino, Wu Tang Clan and even The Libertines; his work also extends to Giggs, Mikill Pane, Scrufizzer, Lunar C and Sway. His contrast in projects certainly informs his own cross-genre album.
‘This Is Where It Gets Good’ encapsulates not only the sonic variety Skeptic can create – it also narrates much of Skepik’s life and personal battle with mental health. As well as vocal appearances from Kojey Radical, Trim, Takura, Caragh Campbell and the angelic-voiced Reader – it also includes soundbites from his personal recordings made during Skeptik’s touring around the world – from the nighttime noise of a rooftop in Jodhpur to a train ride through Japan – we as listeners feel like we too are complicit to the exciting journey that shaped the creative process of the album.
Released on The Last Skeptik’s own Thanks For Trying Records imprint, you can listen to it here.
