22 year-old pioneering grime producer Aiden Hogarth aka S.K.I.T.Z.
Beatz is joining the E:20 team as Music Director/Composer.
Having produced tracks for the cream of UK talent like Tinchy Stryder, Wiley, Skepta, Tempa T and JME, Aiden has now branched out into creating and selecting music for screen, starting with work on series 2 of Eastenders:E20. Having composed over 50% of the show’s music himself, Aiden also sourced tracks from some of the hottest UK artists for use in crucial scenes. The results are a stunning and well thought-out musical backdrop to one of BBC’s most anticipated shows of the year.
Aiden has also worked with some of the UK’s biggest names and has releases in the pipeline with Wiley, Tempa T, Brazen (Roll Deep) and Newham Generals, alongside the launch of his own imprint Straight
Jackit Entertainment and his debut album “Concrete Orchestra” forthcoming in 2011. One of the new faces on the show Heshima Thompson (Asher), who was once a backing singer for Amy Winehouse, is now on the verge of signing a major recording contract. Aiden hopes that his experience and guidance will help Heshima to flourish on stereos in addition to on screen..
