Elijah & Skilliam
Representing the entire spectrum of grime, Elijah & Skilliam and their Butterz imprint have, at times, gleefully shifted focus. At first shining a light on the unsung producers they expanded their operation to incorporate emcees, then a team of in house artists and now, Swindle’s impressive full live band.
Having appeared weekly on London’s pioneering radio station Rinse FM for six years, from 2008 – 2014, Elijah & Skilliam have remained a highly visible and wholly accessible outlet for grime music for the entirety of that time and beyond.
Elijah & Skilliam exist to represent grime music to the fullest and their extended DJ sets reflect that fact wonderfully, drawing as much from the talents of their in-house artists: Swindle, Royal-T and Flava D as they do from the music’s foundational early pioneers. It’s no surprise then, that their current developments have seen them touring the US and Asia whilst they’ve been incubating club nights in Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Berlin and London.
