Artists: Dre Skull
About: Dre Skull is a Brooklyn-based producer and DJ whose boundary-pushing conceptual attitude towards music and culture has been receiving critical acclaim since 2007. Multiple tours around the world and collaborations with artists as far reaching as Sizzla, Lil Scrappy, Sissy Nobby and Vybz Kartel have established him as an ambassador of culture and a producer with a pop touch. In 2009, Dre Skull founded Mixpak Records as an outpost for both his own productions and the work of other artists and producers from a variety of different scenes and cultures. Mixpak's growing roster represents his singular vision that connects dancehall and southern rap legends with unknown teenage techno producers and female rock bands. Dre Skull has been featured by magazines such as XLR8R, Clark, Fader, Tsugi, and Vanity Fair, produced singles that have received strong radio play in Trinidad and charted in Jamaica and received support from artists such as Annie Mac, Sinden, Switch, Drop the Lime, Diplo, Stretch Armstrong and Hot Chip's Joe Goddard. He continues to hone his craft and up the ante, and with frequent recent trips to Kingston, Jamaica he is finishing up producing an upcoming Vybz Kartel full length set for release in Spring 2011.
