Skiz (aka S.H. Fernando Jr.) strikes a singular figure in the media/arts community. After graduating from Harvard and the Columbia University School of Journalism, he began his career as a music journalist for The Source magazine. He parlayed his knowledge and expertise in the field of hip-hop into the critically-acclaimed book, The New Beats: Exploring the Music, Culture & Attitudes of Hip-Hop (Anchor/Doubleday, 1994), which has become an important document of the culture behind rap music. The New Beats has since been published in England, France, and Japan. Not content to just write about the music he loved, Skiz borrowed $1000 from producer Bill Laswell, and started his own label, WordSound Recordings, in December 1994. "I was frustrated with the corporate/money mentality that manipulated the music," says Skiz, a long-time club and radio deejay, who, by then, was deeply involved in music production. "When I put a record out," he continues, "I wanted do it on my own terms." Such a no-compromise, D.I.Y. approach has translated into 40 full-length releases on WordSound over the last seven years (10 produced by Skiz himself), including a handful of singles on WordSound's vinyl-only, sub-division Black Hoodz. Running the gamut from dub and hip-hop to drum 'n bass and weird electronica, WordSound boasts an eclectic catalog, known world-wide for innovation, experimentation and passionate creativity.
