Skream is playing in Manchester on his European tour
It’s going to be a ‘back to basics’ clubbing experience
Skream has announced the dates and venues for his European tour, ‘Open to Close’, and Manchester is one of the 10 UK stops.
He will be playing a “back to basics” set of “anything from funk, to disco, to house or techno” at Gorilla in conjunction with Warehouse Project on the 25th of November.
He is said to be doing all night sets at his favourite clubs in Europe, so we’re honoured to have him grace the rainy city in one of the best venues we have on offer.
Skream said: “The tour itself is a conscious effort to resurrect the ‘back to basics’ element of club culture to the forefront again, forsaking elaborate, extravagant production for the eyes-down, music focused selection of a pure clubbing experience.
“People assume because I did one thing for so long that I only like that style, but this tour will give me a chance to show people that my knowledge goes a bit further than that.”
Skream, A.K.A. Oliver Jones, has been a pioneer of Dubstep, becoming one of the most prominent producers in the scene. However, he is now showcasing his love of funk, disco, house and techno with this stripped back tour across Europe.
