Zombiemeat and Raider are currently recovering from a truly epic evening with the original ninja Mr Jaguar Skills, who played last night at the Scala for his Spring 2012 ‘Jaguar Skills and his Amazing Friends’ Tour. DJ Cable and Murkage were the first acts to start us off and they done an almighty job in hyping up the crowd-by 1:00am the main room was heaving and there wasn’t a reveller in sight who was not unleashing elated bass fury into their moves. Anyone who is fan or has already experienced a night with Jaguar Skills can just imagine how much buzz was flowing through the room by the time we were graced with his presence. The Radio 1 mixologist went down an absolute storm with his infamous lightning-quick mixing and uber mash-up skills. It was an aural assault of Dubstep to Drum n Bass, and everything in between, and I can honestly say I have never been part of such extreme dance mayhem. For the first thirty minutes of his two-hour set, we found ourselves being aggressively moshed around all four corners of the modest sized venue. The crowd went mental, and the epicness of his set done nothing for the safety of our internal organs. Suffering serious body crushing and headrush claustrophobia we battled our way to higher ground and relished a good deal of the set with ample body whipping and arms flailing space. An amazing night. At no point during Jaguar Skill’s set was there time to suck in the stitch and catch our breath; he banged out one epic tune after the next; having had the tickets and waited so long to experience the DJ on the top of our must see list it was certainly not a disappointment. I would recommend absolutely everyone and anyone to hit up a night with Jaguar Skills! I wouldn’t recommend the cabby office near the Scala though. I get a need when I’m leaving the club and I’m wanting to please it (that’s going to bed) and I’m usually on the roam so I need a car when we leave clubs immediately; 45 minutes into our journey lost and driving the wrong way up a dual carriage way I’m thinking we need to get out, but the more that I need it the less that I believe it. Thankfully we are alive so it’s all good… moral to the Lindsey OCS, is get the bus. All I can say now is bring on the next one!
2012 sets to be another landmark year for our masked hero. His highly successful mix compilation for Toolroom Records received critical acclaim, and he has now been donned the“King of the Comps”. The demand for Jaguar Skills in and outside of the UK has gone to new levels; we literally cannot wait to see to see what he pull out the back this year. Keep an eye out for forthcoming event information.
The following videos include “Ginger Pubes” and a rather special mash-up mix - more videos pending.
Also a special Raider shout out to the one and only legendary MC on the Mic Mr Stuuuuudiiiioooo…I’m sending one of these out to you (x) ;-)
