The journey of Skantia’s signing to RAM and subsequent debut single is quite the whirlwind story. Initially picking up his tracks for release on ProgRAM – culminating in the Unorthodox EP earlier this year – his graduation has been swift. ‘Cluster’ is further proof of why. 

Already a firm favourite in Andy C’s sets during his XOYO residency and beyond, ‘Cluster’ packs some serious punch: a growling, drawn-out lead bass provides raw depth while Skantia’s energetic, edit-laden drum patterns give it a stripped back, roller feel. 

This is just the beginning for the Newcastle native on his journey as part of the RAM family and there’s more to come; including a cheeky remix which has turned into one of the biggest dubs of 2019 and been the subject of much internet discussion since. But right now, ‘Cluster’ is the perfect accompaniment as Skantia to steps into the limelight.
