Skatta drops (EXCLUSIVE) Grime Freestyle for Mitchell & Ness LDN Europe before he opened up for Emicida’s UK tour at Kamio Shoreditch.

Born in Coventry, West Midlands in July 1995, Skatta is a special kind of artist, with a passion for his art form and a distinctive sound that sets him apart.
At 23 years old, the emcee, real name Nathan Hunter has already achieved more than most at his age, and despite coming from a city that’s not exactly deep in musical history Skatta is changing that on a daily basis.
Having collaborated with both American and British singers, rappers and producers, Skatta is laying down tracks for a new generation… and the music industry is listening up.
In 2016, Skatta was requested as a guest on BBC 1xtra, and host Sian Anderson’s described him as “one of my favourites to ever do it”, describing his voice as “captivating”.
Since then he has been signed up to the roster of sync licensing agency I’m Not a Machine, performed live at Changing Trax – Electric Proms with former BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year, Toby Young, as well as Godiva Festival, Portobello Live, Fubar Radio, hosted his own show on Pyro Radio, appeared on Brapp TV and more.
Y-ETizm & Skatta made a stellar debut to the UK Music scene last year, pulling moves that most upcoming artist only dreams of. They first met in 2017 at the BBC Amplifies event and shortly after started to work on their collaborative EP, titled “Flavourz”.
Since September 2018, things sped up exponentially. The EP had a good reception and the guys have since been invited to numerous radio shows including BBC Network, Reprezent, Pyro, Soho Radio just to name a few. The EP was covered heavily on different music blogs and online outlets including Highsnobiety, Blatantly Blunt, UK Grime, grimelight.blog, Once Upon A Grime, Link Up TV, Rapondemand & more…
