- Edmonton based dubstep music producer, label and festival coordinator.
Starting his musical path at the age of five, Skobe began playing the piano and performing at small recitals in Southern Alberta. As he grew he became infatuated with drumming and the hardcore/metal scene. For the rest of his teenage years Skobe was rattling bars and venues across Alberta with his double kicks and penetrating blast beats, backing grindcore band Ignotus, heavy metal group Out Of The Shadows and hardcore thrashers An Everyday Tragedy. This heavy brutal scene is what molded Skobe's dark, dirty productions. Being involved heavily in music and wanting to continue his passion for drums he moved to Edmonton, AB to attend Grant Macewan College. Shortly after his life changed. Being introduced to the likes of Skream, Rusko and Rod Azlan he was shown a new path for his musical career. For nearly 10 years, Skobe has been producing and djing relentlessly. He has released tracks over the years on Greezy Rekords and Monkey Dub Records as well as gracing the local airwaves on Calgary's 90.9FM CJSW and monthly online on Gradio.ca.

On top of this he has also been an active member of his local underground music and festival scene.
