Listen to 2 New EPs by DJ Skinniez ‘Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’

New projects from one of Cape Town's brightest producers.

Joburg-based Cape Town electronic producer and disk jockey DJ Skinniez dropped two new EPs this morning. The two projects, which are called Inhale and Exhale, are linked as they both explore the theme of breathing.


Each EP consists of five songs. The projects showcase the extremely talented artist's diversity, as you'll hear traces of dubstep, boom bap and even trap co-existing seamlessly.

Inhale and Exhale only have three guest features: Kaeb, Agord Nova and the rapper Jitsvinger, who appears on the only song that has vocals "Jitsvinger Radio/Static."

Listen to Inhale and Exhale below, or download them here and here.



You can read a breakdown of each song on the projects here.
