Jaguar Skills is half ninja, half jungle cat, half vinyl encyclopedia and fully like an Afrocentric Asian, half-man-half-amazing. A DJ of preternatural prowess, Skills has been honing his craft on the 1s and 2s across London’s clubland and beyond for close to a decade, his status rising with each set to place him higher than the sun in the echelons of DJ artistry, mixology and downright party bangability. Never to be found without a gold and pewter tankard strapped to his waist, it is said to contain a magic concoction passed down in languages now obsolete except to those with born within the sounds of Harry’s Rock.
Never to be fed after midnight, his clawed hands allow him a dexterity on the decks that defies physics, and it is claimed that his eyes can pierce sheet metal, whilst he once defeated the tribes of Hadron singlehandedly in the legendary Battle of Sing-Sing. With a reputation for deft party slaying, and a crowd-stealing regular slot on Trevor Nelson’s weekly BBC Radio 1 show and more, Jaguar Skills’ star is flying higher than his famed shuriken of Sade. We nailed The Twelve to a tree in the forest and hoped he’d post his responses, none or all of which, like this intro, may be omitted under oath.
