Skiddle headed to London's Clapham Common this August Bank Holiday to check out one of the UK's best dance festivals, South West Four, and to catch up with one of its most highly anticipated headliners, Sigma.

Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie (alongside Ben Mauerhoff) formed Sigma while studying at Leeds University in the mid-2000s, and have since gone on to become one of the biggest names in drum 'n' bass, scoring two UK number ones: firstly in 2014 with 'Nobody to Love' (a remix of Kanye West's 'Bound 2'), and then again later that year with 'Changing', featuring vocals by Paloma Faith.

Earlier this year the duo released a remix of Nelly and Kelly Rowlands' noughties banger 'Dilemma'. Speaking to Skiddle, the pair said: "It's a bit of a cheese bag, we know that... but people do love it.

"There's a heavier mix we did, it's a bit more jump up. We stuck it on Instagram and were like 'shall we put this out?'. The answer was 90% yes, so we called up the label and said 'they want it - let's put it out'."
