SKEE MASK / DE
WOS CLUBBING X RED BULL MUSIC
Despite the fact that the two LPs he has signed by now have been pointed out by a good part of the specialized press among the best albums of the year, Skee Mask is an elusive figure. With diverse references under other artistic names on his back, the producer and musician based in Munich prefers to maintain his identity private with this project. His debut album ‘Shred’ (Ilian Tape, 2016), an ostentatious work of techno dub with breakbeat remnants, quickly catapulted him as one of the revelation artists of the year among club audiences around the world. With it, Skee Mask confirmed himself as a master of volume: not only as a measure of decibels, but as a space modeler. Their influences come mainly from the “old” techno labels like Chain Reaction, Warp Records or Counterbalance. In his second feature, ‘Compro’ (Ilian Tape, 2018), despite its varied landscape, the artist never loses sight of the wishes and demands of the dance floor, fusing a strange familiarity feeling in the audience with something that the critics coincide in pointing out as an unknown place. “Compro” appears in many pools for the best dance records of the year 2018.
