In his first release of 2018, Skream turned to the dark side with the pounding techno track "Poison". The track starts off with a segment sermon encouraging listeners to release the toxicity in their lives before dropping into one of this year's most infectious grooves. The inspiring lyrics turn sinister when Skream repeats key phrases and applies distortion. 

Although he achieved dance music legend status from his role in the ascension of dubstep, Skream has been exploring new genres in recent years. Considering his background and production skills, it will be quite interesting to see what the dubstep (and now techno) don will do next. 

Poison is out now on We Are the Brave.
