Debut album for Lewis Recordings - the soundtrack to an imaginary film
 
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 runs a reggae label called Horus Records based in North London.
 
About Filoxiny from Dorey himself:
 
“Filoxiny is a mish mash of a huge variety of styles and sounds. I've tried to push myself in the writing of the music as well as the recording process. The focus on this album was to make songs with a strong cinematic element using string and horn parts making up significant portions. I wanted to do this whilst still retaining a spacey 'psych' feel. As a result there are not many songs with lyrics, instead lots of mellow cinematic grooves that I feel are almost the soundtrack to an imaginary film. 
 
I'd like to point out that the way I record an album is not 'live' by any means. I generally start songs with just a drum break and use that groove as a foundation to write to. Most of the time I’ll start writing with a guitar and if I come up with a part I like the writing is intertwined with the recording as I'll record it at the same time. On occasion I will later redo some of the parts but I'm quite a big believer in keeping the original sentiment so I often end up using a part that I didn't even play very well. For this album I often started with a MIDI keyboard and some not-very-good string/horn sounds, building up rough orchestral textures that I knew I would later re-record. The song 'Filoxiny' was started with that double bass line which was actually a recording from a session back in 2012. The major part of the album was recorded between May 2017 and May 2018 though, over many different recording sessions in a variety of locations.”
