Despite rapidly building a reputation as one of house music’s most exciting new talents, young DJ and producer SKIY doesn’t have her head in the clouds. A trained pianist from a young age and heavily inspired by her jazz singer mother, SKIY’s sonic tastes are shaped by a solid belief that “musical apprehension can take place on many different levels”. Equally, her musical upbringing was as broad and rich as her global roots, which spread to Brazil, Croatia and her homeland of Germany. Consciously casting aside the more commercial house sound with which she first announced her arrival in 2017, last year saw SKIY begin to show her true, more rugged side on Who Got The Keys for Oliver Heldens’ ever eclectic Heldeep label. 2019 has since seen the young producer’s musical evolution stretch further forward still, with a run of head-turning, club-ready releases. Booming bass-laced banger Quiggin came first, quickly followed by the incendiary Flawless; placing SKIY and her distinctive production style firmly on the dancefloor - and alongside the likes Fisher, Solardo, Claude Von Stroke and Chris Lake. The track Talking continues the pace with plays and support from the UK house scene’s best tastemakers including Gorgon City, Friend Within, Tuff London, Tough Love, Kideko, and Kiss DJs Just Kiddin and Ben Malone. Within Eyes For You SKIY delivered a majestic dose of assertive and sultry. The new single Seven Days and One Weekexpertly boasts playful elements of SKIY’s personality. Heavy weighted beats are contrasted with complex percussion that’s deftly placed. It provides a prolific and slow rising musical landscape that holds an unusual essence of both the immensely calm and profusely powerful. She’s celebrating an amazing summer with mainstage, techhouse and house stage plays including some of the best festivals in the world like Lollapalooza Berlin, Untold Festival, Tinderbox, Both Summerburst festivals, Mysteryland, Neversea festival, Airbeat One, Electric Love, Nature One and many more. The sky is not the limit for this young producer and you can be sure she’ll be focusing on what really matters over the years ahead - solid, underground house grooves that keep feet firmly on the floor.
