Skream plays surprise DJ set on rickshaw in central London

The producer DJed on the streets of the capital earlier today (April 5)

Skream surprised shoppers by playing a DJ set on the back of a rickshaw in London earlier today.

The producer and DJ – real name Oliver Jones – manages to DJ using a mixing deck and speaker strapped to the rickshaw.

Jones informed fans of the stunt, arranged to promote Eastern Electrics festival, by posting a video on Instagram with the caption: “Currently riding around London on a rickshaw!!!!”


A number of onlookers filmed the Magnetic Man member as he made his way down Oxford Circus in central London.

One fan called the DJ an ”absolute hero” while another wrote on Twitter: “if any DJ in the world was going to ride around in a rickshaw on a mild Tuesday lunchtime, it was always going to be Skream”.

Jones recently played Ultra Music festival back to back with Lee Foss (see a video below). He is lined-up to play a number of festivals in the UK this summer including Bestival and Eastern Electrics.
