Tom Petais, also known as Skism (stylised: SKisM), is both a DJ and the sole manager of Never Say Die Records and Never Say Die: Black Label, as well as a former dubstep and electronica artist. He is currently based in London, UK, as is Never Say Die.

Petais, circa 2017.

Biography:

Known amongst his peers as the ‘DJs DJ’, SKisM gained notoriety as one of the busiest and most electrifying mixers on the circuit, having toured Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe, America and more.

Production wise, Petais worked with, and remixed, some of the biggest names in the business with his music racking up over 6 million views on Youtube. His collaboration with Excision (‘sEXisM’) was one the top selling tracks on his Mau5trap Album and was featured in the trailer for the war film Act of Valor (McCoy, Waugh, 2012). He topped the chart with Flux Pavilion & Foreign Beggars on ‘Jump Back’, with a further Beatport number one with 'Like This' featuring Virus Syndicate. Petais was also featured on the first release on Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint with his remix of Porter Robinson’s ‘The State’.

In late 2015, SKisM retired from producing music to focus on running both Never Say Die and Black Label, before discontinuing Black Label in 2021.

Label:

As co-owner and A&R of two of the most prolific labels in bass music, Never Say Die Records and Never Say Die: Black Label, Petais has had a hand in showcasing some of the freshest music in the scene, championing the sounds of up and coming artists such as Effin, Syzy, Moore Kismet, Akeos and Nitepunk.
