about

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of my trip down this rabbit hole, I wanted to release a sort of retrospective that would give newcomers a place to start, but also provide something for those that might have some (or all) of the available releases. To that end, this collection includes a track from each major release, plus a few rarities that are no longer available anywhere else, on both volumes. I also dug way back into the vaults to include a couple of tracks from my first demo tape (as in cassette) way back in 1997.

Volume one is made up of tracks that have a beat, and, as the name would imply, volume 2 contains the more experimental ambient/noise tracks. Each volume contains 17 tracks that span the history of Skin Contact.


As always, unauthorized reproduction or distribution is prohibited, but sampling is ok.
