What is a boy wonder to do in 2010?
Skream - Outside The Box

It’s been five whole years since Skream became dubstep’s first true superstar with sub-bass smash ‘Midnight Request Line’. Hard to believe the nation’s favourite dance genre began as a boys-only club of two-step outcasts shuffling nervously around a fawning Mary Anne Hobbes on a half-empty dancefloor. What is a boy wonder to do in 2010?

Answer: give a little bit of everything. From the moody chasms of ‘Metamorphosis’ to the onomatopoeic LFO-driven ‘Wibble’, this is a true chocolate box of dubstep’s disparate splinter styles, proving Skream has most certainly still got it.
