The rise and rise of Jaguar Skills has been well documented. Honing his craft and love of music for the last 20 years Jag has remained true to his school and kept a mysterious edge to his character; with details of his real name, age and home town etc left largely unconfirmed…
One thing is known though. He has been responsible for some of the most exciting musical projects of the past few years. Largely centered around producing stunning mixes comprises his personal unique edits and mash-ups, Jag has caught the ear and worked with the likes of fashion label Maharishi, fashionista Jade Jagger, Urban Outfitters, Carling Zest, Renault Clio, and of course BBC Radio 1.
Numerous sell out UK tours along with tours in North America and Australia bridged the gap before his second compilation on Ministry Of Sound, titled ‘Jaguar Skills And His Amazing Friends Vol 2’.
2016 saw Jaguar Skills step out as a producer in his own right. He started with a remix for Benjamin Carlisle’s summer anthem ‘One’ before dropping his first solo ‘Ready To Rock’ EP on Viper Recordings to much acclaim. The stand out track was ‘Reload That’ with Milli Major which went down a storm, the track being heavily supported across BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, Kiss & Capital and it even managed B list status on BBC 1xtra for two weeks, impressive for his first ever solo release.
For the rest of the year and well into 2017 you will continue to see the ever present Jaguar Skills continuously impress us with his mesmerizing DJ sets while his solo career as a producer steadily grows with a forthcoming single on Insanity Records / Sony while dropping his second EP on Viper Recordings. So make sure you stay locked in with the rest of the Jaguar Skills army to hear an impending aural assault of every tempo; from house to drum n bass, and everything in-between.
