“The Skints are “east London reggae” through and through. For the last ten years, Marcia Richards, Joshua Waters Rudge, Jamie Kyriakides, and Jonathan Doyle have toured Europe extensively with their eclectic fusion of Jamaican music styles, pop hooks, hip-hop, and heavy bass. They dropped a couple of albums and EPs along the way, too, yet you still might not have a clue.
On March 31, the British band are hoping to top-up their notoriety with the release of their new three-track EP, Short Change. The project’s standout, “Break Me Down,” which we’re premiering here at MTV IGGY, nods heavily towards reggae’s golden era of the late ’60s/early ’70s. However, things are kept fresh with the help of a special guest verse from guitar-loving grime bar specialist, Jovel (Random Impulse). One for the upcoming summer days, stream “Break Me Down” in full down below.” – Words by Joseph JP Patterson
