‎سكيز
For Sydney artist, producer and engineer Big Skeez, music is in constant conversation with
his roots, tracing back generations and running across continents. With a childhood immersed
in the sounds of Africa - Afrobeat, Dancehall, Reggae and R&B records from his parents and
older siblings ringing in his ears - his wavy, melodically-driven Afro Swing brims with
personality, marrying those influences with his Western Sydney upbringing in a vivid,
irrepressible combination of syrupy basslines, Afro-inspired percussive rhythms, club-
indebted samples and slick vocals that glide between rap flows and autotuned hooks.
Independently releasing since 2016, Big Skeez signed with NLV Records in 2021.

In between, years of consistent output, steady creative toiling and collaborations with the likes
of Korky Buchek, Lil SpacelyL, FOURA and Swick have garnered support from triple j, triple j
Unearthed, FBi Radio, Acclaim, Life Without Andy and more, featuring on Spotify’s A1 Hip
Hop, The Flavour, Hybrid and Local Hype playlists alongside Apple Music’s Fresh Finds and
The New Australia. Rooted in his African heritage but speaking on his life in Western Sydney,

For Big Skeez, this distinction represents an outlook that colours everything he hopes to
accomplish as an artist: encouraging African-Australian kids just like himself to reach more
into the rich histories and legacies of their cultures, shining a light on the triumphs of Western .

Infectious doesn't feel like a good word to use right now, but that's the first thing that came to mind. This floats. Swick's production is spot on, providing the space and warmth beneath Skeez's natural flow.

big skeez has that enviable skill of setting a mood perfectly, sounding so damn cool and doing it all without feeling like he's even getting out of his chair in the booth.
