SKITZ - BIOGRAPHY

In 1996 his debut 12” is released on Ronin. 'Skitz alongside Roots Manuva' and gains him immediate success. The song not only causes a stir on the Hip-Hop underground but it also crosses over to the Jazz scene. The track gets picked up by Giles Peterson and also Patrick Forge who later use the track for the Rebirth of Cool series. The single also opens doors for the talented Roots Manuva.

‘Dedication’ wins Best Single of the Year at the 2000 UK Hip Hop awards. The tune features the mic skills of Rodney P and turntable contributions from the likes of The Mixologists DJ Go and Ronin label pal Deckwrecka.

Countryman. Skitz’s first long player combines distinctive production with a whole array of conscious lyrical contributions. The fact that there are no less than 25 fresh MC’s and DJ’s on this LP is a clear message to major record labels. Some of the artists include Skinnyman, Est’elle, Dynamite MC, Phi-Life cypher, Taskforce, RodneyP, Roots Manuva, to name a few.

The classic jump up track Simon Says by Pharaohe Monche gets the Skitz remix treatment and he is the first British Producer to have a record on Rawkus Records.

So popular is Skitz's UK Sound that ex-Galliano rapper Rob G writes a track all about searching for the elusive Skitz track. He also gets sampled by US producer Dallas Austin for Monicas huge R’n'B album on which he is also credited.

Countryman wins Hip Hop album of the year at the 2001 Hip Hop awards.

A steady ‘production line’ of releases under his belt and remixes for the likes of Roni Size, Sain Supa Crew and Faithless.
