Skinshape is the solo project from twenty-four-year-old Will Dorey, also known for playing bass in hotly tipped new band alt-rock band Palace. He produces nostalgic music drawing influence from Soul, Funk, Psychedelic Rock, Dub and Hip Hop primarily from the 60s,70s and 90s.
Don’t let the vintage sound fool you. All of his magic is original, without a sample in sight. Every instrument either played by Dorey himself, or his array of guest friend musicians.
It’s not surprising that DJ’s on BBC 6 music in particular, along with the online community have shown their unified support for his new musical adventure.
