Skyaaz is a UK based turntablist and electronic artist. As a teenager he produced ‘cut and paste’ mix tapes and grew to love electro and old school hip hop (influenced by the legendary Mike Allen Capital radio show and artists such as Steinski). His early mixtapes featured scratching, sampling of film soundtracks and eclectic rhythms from dance tracks from multi genres. In the late eighties he performed on Radio London as a scratch DJ – and played at parties with live mash-ups mixing film scores, electric beats, house and trance rhythms at house parties and bars.
Skyaaz believes in the healing quality and love that music can bring – and shares his passion for a better world through dance and beats.
Skyaaz work has appeared in film, documentaries and appeared on several CD’s. Following serious illness he disappeared for many years, returned to the scene in 2015 to 2017 to produce the popular Skyaaz radio show on Kane FM. The show feature interviewed many iconic artists such as Jean Michel Jarre, GrandMaster Mele Mel, Man Parrish, Vince Clarke and Egyptian Lover.
2021 sees his work continue – with the launch of the Skyaaz Podcast YouTube channel, merchandise range and several new musical collaborations on the horizon.
The future’s bright – the future’s Skyaaz.
