Following collaborations with esteemed producer New Machine, New Ross spitter Skripteh has turned a few heads with his no holds barred delivery over thumping instrumentals. Recent releases ‘Divided by Knowledge’ and ‘Big Facts’ sum up the direction he’s heading in thus far. Borrowing elements from drill and adding his own unique slant, he’s embracing some of the genre’s more modern sounds.
He’s toyed with other styles previously but it feels as if Skripteh is coming into his own as the next decade approaches. Possessing a unique cadence and relentless flow, he’s quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
We caught up with the Wexford native, who is busy working on new material for 2020. A man of few words, he kept it short and sweet this time.
