Skanks!

Armitage Skanks!

Last Tuesday I was invited to Skanks! HQ for a guest DJ set and interview with weekly host Boy Wonder. For those unfamiliar with Skanks! the brand was formed back in 1994 by DJ's Boy Wonder and DTISM after they put on a night in Public Life, a bar converted out of a Victorian underground toilet in East London.

After organising nights at Public Life they moved onto the Medicine Bar and in 2005 Skanks! started broadcasting regular radio shows with Nu Skool Breaks Radio. Since then the team has grown in numbers adding Collins303, Miss T, SteelzaWheelz, AWE soundsystem, Ollspin and BubbaKing all playing a varied selection of Hip Hop, Funk, Electro, Breaks, House, Nuskool Breaks and Drum and Bass. More recently Skanks! has been involved with For Boarders By Boarders (see previous post here for info) as well as organising events in London and of course playing at the Nu Skool Breaks tent at Glade Festival this coming weekend.

If you're not heading to Glade Festival this weekend then save the date 15th August as Skanks! take over Dex club in Brixton for an all-dayer/nighter stretching from 12pm through till 6am on Sunday! The event will feature DJs, live acts, live art and prizes, not forgetting the BBQ and hot tub! Head over to the Facebook event for details.

The Skanks! show is broadcast every Tuesday from 7pm-9pm on www.nsbradio.co.uk and you can catch each broadcast again by subscribing to the podcast. My 1 hour DJ set and interview is up now so click on the link below to listen. Thanks again to Boy Wonder and the Skanks! crew for inviting me over, I'm looking forward to Dex!
