Skream Launches New Label; Stream the Inaugural Release from Motions
- Words: Kat Leinhart
Skream (a.k.a. Oliver Jones) made his name as a dubstep producer, but over the past year, has fully devoted himself to the sounds of house and disco. Now, the Croydon-born veteran and Radio 1 DJ has announced the launch of a new platform to service this change in direction. His new label, Of Unsound Mind, will pivot around a ''melodic, deep, and colorful'' aesthetic, with London-based producer Motions—a Body High affiliate and one half of the now defunct Grown Folk pair—delivering the imprint's inaugural record.
Of Unsound Mind 001 is streaming in full below, with official release details to be announced soon. Furthermore, FACT has conducted a brief interview with Skream to discuss the launch of his new label endeavor which can be read here.
