Paris DJs Soundsystem presents Skerik
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2012-04-15

Skerik (aka Eric Walton, aka El Guzano, aka Nalgas Sin Carne) has been playing (sax, but also grand piano, vibes and guitar) and has featured on more than a hundred records in every genre from jazz to psychedelic pop, from doom metal to post punk, from avant-groove to New Orleans brass band. His bands and projects include Skerik's Bandalabra (with whom he's just released a fantastic Live At the Royal Room on The Royal Potato Family Records), Skerik's Syncopated Tainted Septet, Critters Buggin', Tuatara, Garage à Trois, Ponga, Crack Sabbath, Midnite Disturbers, The Dead Kenny G's... just to mention the bare minimum without delving into his myriad of cameos. We just published an interview with him (available in English or in French) and immersed ourselves into his vast discography to extract a selection of tracks for a Paris DJs Soundsystem Presents Skerik special mix… Expect quite an amazing trip over 18 years of American Jazz, from the Critters Buggin' early years in the 90s to his latest Skerik's Bandalabra project.
