Skinshape's work is of the highest quality and his creative variety is astounding. Aside from that, the track "I Didn't Know" is by far one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in my 22 years on this Earth. That's not an exaggeration. Keep up the amazing work man.
Skinshape is the project of British musician William Dorey. The sound has roots in many genres but in particular 1960s-0s Funk, Soul, Reggae, Psychedelic Rock, Afrobeat and Folk.
Skinshape grew out of a love for old music and the way it sounded. Initially Dorey experimented with samples (especially drum breaks) to create instrumental Hip-Hop/Trip-Hop tracks but then later started to play around with tape machines as a means to create his own 'samples'. This process gave birth to Skinshape with all elements being recorded by Dorey since the first self-titled album released in 2014. He released his second album Oracolo in 2015 followed by Life & Love in 2017.
Aside from the Skinshape project Dorey was bassist for the band Palace from 2014-2017 and also runs a reggae label called Horus Records based in North London.
Whether you need to catch an updraft on some jazzy breaks or float back to earth after flying too high, Moderator is an able sherpa and Sinner's Syndrome is a beautiful work of musical art. Slack Haywood
Once in a while you stumble upon a band that blows you away with such unexpected freshness and brilliance, that you're convinced they'll conquer the world in a matter of weeks. I'm still waiting, but Khruangbin is such a band. Consisting of only three the band makes intimate music that somehow sounds larger than a passing parade. Celebrating life, traveling and good company. With 'White Glove' as a lovely tribute to a deceased feline. Majestic happy little clouds they are. veldusi
