Skream pays homage to his newborn daughter in "Song For Olivia"

Skream's newest release via Ministry of Sound, "Song For Olivia," is an aptly-titled homage to his newborn daughter. The track sees the prolific dance maestro take on a disco-fuelled dissonance, signifying the beginnings of a new sound.

Harnessing a retro 80's synths, "Song For Olivia" takes the melodic techno sound that the Croydon-born artist has come to be associated with into new territories. Combining elements of carefree disco and emotive trance to masterful effect, the track is voluminous in its delivery, smooth in its optimistic elements. As usual, Skream's sound is polished, refined in each chord and sophisticated in his usage of a subtle risers. Undoubtedly, the track is a perfect gift for his daughter, one that's swathed in luminescence and hope for the future.
