Dubstepper Skream will release his second album, Outside the Box, through Tempa during late August.
With long-time dubplate ‘Listening to the Records on my Wall’ as the lead single, Outside the Box features indie rap favourite Murs (on ‘8-bit Baby’) and La Roux, who Skream famously tackled on the crossover hit ‘In for the Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey mix)’.
Most of Skream’s output has taken the form of singles (his Skreamizm series of EPs for Tempa are semi-legendary), but this marks the second official album for a man who apparently has 872 finished songs from 2007-2010 on his hard drive, and over 20,000 song files in his old bedroom at his parents house. As well as Murs and La Roux, it features Autonomic’s dBridge & Instra:mental on ‘Reflections’ and vocalist Sam Frank on ‘Where You Should Be.’
