This project has been years in the making. Back when Pandamonium and Joe Dojo first met all those years back in Plymouth UK, Joe was a member of the crew Billers In The Mist (alongside his elder brother Nickendo) and Pandamonium was concentrating on his DJ Battle / Club DJ goals (of which he achieved 2 x DMC UK Finalist position's and won the title of Redbull Drop Champion in 2012). Both Joe and his brother spent numerous evening's at Pandamonium's gaff, writing and freestyling to numerous Pandamonium beats, they even appeared on the Battle Stations radio show together in 2010, but the potential collaboration remained stagnent until around 2 years ago, when Joe hit up Pandamonium wanting to feature on his EP at the time in 2013. They then created "Wherever I Roam" which featured on Pandamonium's solo production EP "Altruistic Motives" (Find the 2014 Remix in the bonus tracks). From that point onwards, Joe declared that he needed to finally release a project of his own, and following on from the popularity of "Wherever I Roam", it was clear that Pandamonium was the obvious choice to produce the project!! Hence, Skills That Dont Pay The Bills was born!!
And here we are, finally, 9 tracks (and 2 bonus tracks) of whole hearted, intelligent, inspired, boom bap hip hop goodness to download onto your chosen device for FREE!!
