If you have seen Katy Perry and Robyn in concert in recently, you cannot have missed Skeet Skeet's hot and happening DJ action in between their sets. After Robyn clears the stage and Katy Perry is getting ready for her show, Skeet Skeet masterfully warms up the massive arena crowds with an irresistible mix of pulsing dance beats, catchy pop hooks and funky hip hop grooves. 

What I particularly like about Skeet Skeet is that his musical taste runs the gamut - from grimy gangsta rap to edgy rock riffs to candy-coated teen pop. He is an equal opportunity listener and his setlists reflect that.

In many ways, Skeet Skeet is on the forefront of the rising playlist generation that doesn't think in terms of genres, but rather compiles and shuffles through a varied collection of songs to fit a certain taste, mood or aesthetic.

Skeet Skeet announced that he will be releasing his own artist single, aptly titled "I Like It Loud," on July 26. It's the first offering from his debut album due out later this year. The track, which featuring raps and vocals by Donnis and Nadia Oh, is destined to be "a party anthem across the land," according to a press release. Yes people, brace yourself for that.

The DJ, remixer and producer first emerged on the L.A. club scene in 2006. Born Trevor McFedries, a country kid from Iowa, Skeet Skeet realized that playing football in college wasn't going to achieve his dreams. He packed his bags and settled in Los Angeles where he ended up spinning tunes at celebrity hotspots.

After teaming with Shwayze, more and more exciting new opportunities emerged for him such as being the first DJ to play the entire Van Warped Tour, plus producing countless remixes for artists like Fergie, Mike Posner, The Ting Tings, John Legend, Broken Social Scene and, of course, his pal Katy Perry.  (You may also have seen his cameo in the video for Jessie & The Toy Boys' "Push It.")

The multi-talented Skeet Skeet has an ear for everything good, cool and forward, and he should be on the top of your list to keep an eye on. Skeet Skeet is on tour with Katy Perry through August so make sure to catch him in a town near you.
