Skream returns to Toronto for marathon set in lieu of canceled show
After announcing his first album in over ten years, Skream makes his return to Toronto on January 18, 2020, now in the form of an open-to-close showing at the same venue, CODA Nightclub. CODA’s robust sound system and routine bookings of top-tier talent is a surefire contribution to their continued success and acclaim.
Known for spearheading the rise and growth of the UK’s 2000s dubstep scene, Skream’s musical discography and legacy extends further than most. His early productions combined invigorating melodic vocals through grimy frequencies—a seemingly unlikely pairing, though, one that quickly set him apart from his counterparts. Over a decade later, he now plays and produces a mixture of house, techno, and disco.
In early 2019, Skream announced a bundle of summer shows including a stop in Toronto, to the delight of Canadian fans. However the show was cancelled one week prior to the event. No official statement was made, however fans observed the announcement of his newborn child via his Instagram account.
