Adam Mills, aka A Skillz, is a breaks DJ and producer from the U.K. who has spun at parties and festivals across the globe.
Across the years, he has combined funk and soul -- the backbone of old-school and golden age rap, his primary inspirations -- with flashes of drum’n’bass and dubstep. His first release of note was a collaboration with the like-minded Krafty Kuts; in 2002, they issued the freewheeling 12” “Tricka Technology” (featuring Zulu Nation's T.C. Izlam), and then followed it the next year with an album of the same title. For the next several years, Mills worked predominantly with the 12” format, including over ten releases in the bootleg-oriented Insane Bangers series. He also mixed Freshtraxxx, a compilation of releases from the Finger Lickin' label that featured his work beside Krafty Kuts, as well as that of Plump DJs, Soul of Man, Drumattic Twins, and Slyde. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
