Skream offers up brand new album for free

Dubstep’s main man Skream has always kept a busy schedule on the production front. Nine odd years since we first started getting releases from the Big Apple Records pioneer, Oliver Jones is still getting up at 7am each morning to get to the studio, often ending up with more than a dozen new tunes each week. With that level of output, it makes sense that he’d be sitting on some unreleased gems.
So when Skream cracked the 100,000 followers mark on Twitter last night, he opted to celebrate by giving away no fewer than 11 of those unreleased tracks for free download. Yep, that’s a whole album’s worth of previously-unheard Skream without having to pay a cent (or log on to Pirate Bay). The tracks in question were all made between 2007 and 2009, the period in between Jones’ 2006 debut album Skream! and 2010’s Outside the Box – around the time he was busy making music history with that La Roux In For The Kill remix.
It’s not the first time the dubstep don’s given away his work. Last year he and Benga offered up their joint 5-track EP for free download and this ‘100k Freeizm’ is the latest in a series that began in 2010. Head here for the free download and check out the tracklisting below.
100k Freeizm Tracklisting:
