Producer The Last Skeptik releases his brand new music video ‘Trouble’ from his forth coming album ‘This is where it gets good’ that will be released Friday 29th September 2017.
The music video features man of the moment Kojey Radical and Chase N Status collaborator Takura on a deeply dark and highly cinematic short film meets music video.
New Release: The Last Skeptik features in his new single and music video ‘Trouble’
Directed by Shawn Butcher, Rihanna’s Fenty campaign video director, showcases a violent stylized music video of murder, betrayal and the final scene destroys a vintage Jaguar.
The single ‘Trouble’ is a marching ode to the aggression and hunger that keeps us alive throughout the struggles we face, with Takura’s chilling vocals and Kojey Radical’s etherial fire creating something truly magical.
‘This Is Where It Gets Good’ is the painfully honest, highly cinematic, sophomore solo project from producer The Last Skeptik. Navigating a dark, twisted journey through surviving in London, battling with mental health problems and coming out the other side, its all here on this soundtrack to a movie that hasn’t yet been made.
This is electronic music at its most raw and emotional, with undeniable inspiration from classic records by Unkle and Cinematic Orchestra, with the root in Skeptik’s hip-hop upbringing.

Going Deep: The single ‘Trouble’ is a marching ode to the aggression and hunger that keeps us alive throughout the struggles we face
Featuring guest appearances from Kojey Radical, grime pioneer Trim, the Chase and Status collaborator Takura, upcoming pop star Matt Wills and many more, the talented vocalists narrate this beautifully produced and entirely engulfing album.
Opening with the haunting Death featuring Bjork-esque vocals from Caragh Campbell, the morbid title signifies a new beginning, punctuated with the rousing, entirely live Don’t Forget as remembrance of the darkness that came before it.
The incredible singer Matt Wills laces four songs on the album with his trademark charm, with the beefy J Dilla drums and muted keys of Keep It Simple being an outstanding highlight.
Final Scene : A Vintage Jaguar is destroyed at a scrap yard
The album is punctuated with recordings from touring around the world, from a rooftop in Jodhpur, India to a beach in Colombia and a train in Japan.
The daily background bustle and breeze so there’s limited silence in between songs. It’s all about taking this transformative, and at times turbulent journey with Skeptik.Released on his own Thanks For Trying Records imprint, this is an entirely independent release.
