Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Audio Mixer: Skream.
Muze PNote Photographer: Shaun Bloodworth.
Muze PNote Ollie Jones, recording as Skream, has been on the dubstep scene since it first lurched out of the London clubs and into the Croydon record shop in which he worked as a teen. Still in his early twenties, Jones has exerted a huge influence on the development of the genre, and on Outside the Box he contributes to a breaking down of the very stylistic definitions he helped create. Guest vocalists pop up here and there throughout the program, but their parts are often chopped and screwed and manipulated and sometimes rendered nearly unrecognizable -- that's a sample of disco diva Jocelyn Brown on "I Love the Way," but her voice is pitched down and tethered to a coolly lurching beat that makes her declaration of love sound more like a cry of desperation; on "Where You Should Be," pop and dubstep join hands and Sam Frank's voice is sacrificed to the great god Vocoder, to very fun effect. Elsewhere you'll hear instrumental dubstep of the more typical dark and juddering variety ("Wibbler," "Fields of Emotion"), mixed-up jungle ("Listenin' to the Records on My Wall"), syrupy hip-hop with subterranean bass ("8 Bit Baby," with Murs on the mike), and straight-up lush and gorgeous electro-pop ("Finally," featuring La Roux). And at the very end, everything explodes into a colorful effusion of frenetic old-school jungle breakage ("The Epic Last Song"). It's an exhilarating ride, equally suited for dancing, fast driving, or skateboarding down the middle of a busy city street. ~ Rick Anderson

Artist Overview

Often hailed as dubstep's wunderkind, Oliver Jones (Skream) emerged as the music's leading light with his 2005 breakout hit, "Midnight Request Line," a recognized classic of the genre. Combining the menacing, bass pressure of darkside drum & bass with the lighter, more melodic, elements of techno and house, Skream's broader sound palette resonated with audiences tiring of the narrow scenesterism of dubstep's underground acolytes. Initially drawn to dubstep while working at Croydon record shop Big Apple Records, Jones self-released his first singles, often in collaboration with Benga. The producer's visibility exploded when influential FWD club DJ, Hatcha, broke his first white-label tracks, including the aforementioned "Midnight Request Line." On the strength of the hit song, Skream released his self-titled debut album in 2006.

Professional Reviews

Mojo (Publisher)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Jones genetically modifies the cavernous dubstep basslines by experimenting in Detroitish techno, hardcore, old skool junglism and trad electronica."

Pitchfork (Website)
- "[T[racks like 'Where You Should Be' and 'How Real' simultaneously bring heavy, frame-rattling basslines for the steppers and wistful pop-R&B vocals for the lover's-rock crowd."

Clash (magazine)
- "From the moody chasms of 'Metamorphosis' to the onomatopoeic LFO-driven 'Wibble', this is a true chocolate box of dubstep's disparate splinter styles..."

Uncut (magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "OUTSIDE THE BOX stretches dubstep definitions beyond current legal limits, from the cubist rave-pop of his Freckles the transatlantic robo-stomp of '8 Bit Baby'..."
