The Last Skeptik
Same Day Different Shit

While London’s The Last Skeptik is well known among hip hop heads across the UK, with his latest compilation ‘Same Day Different Shit’ he has announced his mainstream intentions. This is not to deride the albums content, but rather to celebrate the young producer’s potential to create chart destined hits in the near future.

Take his remix of Marina & The Diamonds’ Mowgli Road, already receiving airtime from the likes Huw Stephens and Rob Da Bank, and for good reason. The tracks original vocal takes on a new setting, thriving amongst a clever mixture of dirty electronics and hip hop beats.

Elsewhere Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly guests on a remix of Eslam Jawaad’s Star Spangled Banner, and is also remixed earlier on the disk. This unpredictable choice of source material works in Skeptik’s favour, as he hops from genre to genre, re-working tracks both popular and unknown. So don’t be surprised to find UK chart regulars The Streets and Daniel Merriweather, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Loudmouth Melvin and hip hop superstar The Game.

Instead of clicking “play track”, check out the aforementioned re-working of Marina & The Diamond’s Mowgli’s Road, to sample The Last Skeptik doing what he does best:
