Skream: ‘I want to make sure once this fad dies out, I’m still standing’

“I didn’t say forget dubstep,” Skream says when I open the interview by incorrectly wording a past quote of his – “I said I don’t tie anyone with dubstep anymore.”
Inside the small dressing room, there are photographers, promoters, DJs and emcees all attentively fixed on Skream.
“The word dubstep is being used by a lot of people and there were a lot of people being tagged with the dubstep brush. They don’t want to be tagged with it and shouldn’t be tagged with it – that’s not what they’re pushing.”
“At one point, all the Numbers gang were tagged with it,” he says looking towards Numbers label boss Jackmaster who is in the room, “When I say ‘UK bass’, it’s what everyone UK is associated with so it would be a lot easier if it was called that,” says Skream.
While relatively young at 25, Skream is a veteran of the dubstep scene. He reflects on the diversification of the genre and its connection with what he calls UK bass music.
