Skream announced as XOYO’s first resident of 2015



From Saturday 10th January to Saturday 28th March, Skream aka Ollie Jones, one of dance music’s most influential and important figureheads, will join XOYO in London for 12 consecutive Saturdays.  The residency series at XOYO has been one of the breathes of fresh air in Londons busy schedule for 2014 and it looks to be getting stronger and more exciting for 2015.

Skream’s path through Clubland and its genres has taken him on an unexpected journey; from his beginnings at Big Apple Records to topping the charts as part of Magnetic Man and Radio 1 residencies, he’s the poster boy for contemporary British music. 

Having played a pioneering role in the early days of dubstep soundtracking the streets of Croydon, he went on to shock communities by quitting the scene in favour of disco. Now delving into the worlds of house and techno, his knowledge and passions spread wider than most (an essential trait for a resident in our opinion).

His eclectic tastes are reflected in the line-ups of his XOYO residency… Though Skream is set to play the first and last dates all night on his own you can expect strong billings in between featuring the likes of Robert Hood (who’s mix for one of Skreams final Radio 1 shows blew us away), Mark BroomEvan Baggs a Valentine’s Day special with Dimitri From ParisHorse Meat Disco and Soul Clap will be stopping by on February 28 th.

House heads! Don’t miss Eats Everything’s return to XOYO on February 7th, the legendary Derrick Carter in mid-March and chart-topper Route 94 on January 24th. Keep your eyes peeled for Skream presents 2001-2005, a one off dubstep special on Saturday 21st February which will be pretty memorable. Line up for that one will be announced on the day.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
