Far removed from the typical bass music centres of London and Bristol, Edinburgh based Nick Karlsberg Skillis has been championing these sounds in the city for 5 years now as a committed promoter and DJ.
Having ran the Headset party in Edinburgh clocking in over 100 parties and bringing in UK pedigree such as Hodge, Kowton, Peverelist, DJ Lag and DVS1 to the city, his service to the sound has been recognised with takeovers of the Livity Sound NTS show, playing 100% Sottish productions and an appearance at the Livity Sound party in Bristol alongside Bakongo. Headset will celebrate their 5th Birthday in December with a full Livity Sound Takeover featuring Peverelist, Hodge, Bakongo, Anina and Danielle.
In the faster tempo ranges, he also operates the Sound System Legacies XL parties bringing Slimzee, Sully, Commodo, VIVEK, Noodles and others who would normally rarely visit the city. This mix reflects the sounds of SSL. XL running through classic jungle from DJ SS, Tom and Jerry and more. SSL celebrate NYE this year with a stacked lineup including Om Unit, Groove Chronicles, Hyponik favourite Proc Fiskal and more.
