Skittles – Poor With £100 Trainers

Hotly anticipated on the Estate Recordings label, wordsmith Skittles returns with his second LP. The album features Skittles own productions alongside Chimpo, Dub Phizix and DRS alongside vocals from Mr Fox and Fallacy. A serious recipe for a long player. The album features cuts released previously as a taster such as ‘Tip-i-Cally’, ‘Boys In Blue’ and the monster ‘Dot2Dot’ as well as some fresh cuts like Robot Bodypop favourite, ‘Lying Here’. As Estate Recordings like to put it:

Imagine a piece of classical music, put it in a blender and add some reggae/ska to it, throw a load of broken instruments in the mix and a few proper cold rappers, sprinkle in some grime an a vinyl,add a bit of pop an pulse until smooth, an you will have nothing like what this album is.

Released on the 5th March in Manchester where you can catch the launch party at The Deaf Institute with a worldwide release following on the 12th March. Pick this album up. Don’t sleep.
