If you’re used to discovering artists after they’re already huge, here’s your opportunity to get ahead of the curve.
Skullkid is an Atlanta producer who has been getting increasingly popular in the last year. He released his first album (to you, in 2000 years) in late 2015, and he’s collaborated with dozens of artists since. He even has shows booked in March and April, performing in San Francisco, Michigan, and North Carolina.
His new single, “Bang,” was released in early March. It’s a good representation of his style; vocal samples are plentiful, and they’re underpinned with a heavy bass-line and melodic keys. Bluesy guitar complements the track well.
But “Bang” is far from a clone of his older work. Skullkid presents a more developed atmosphere here, and it’s obvious that his production skills are getting even better with time.
It’ll be interesting to see where Skullkid is this time next year. If the past year is any indication, great things are ahead.
