I Didn’t Know

Lewis Recordings
Having quietly gone about his business on the peripheries of the mainstream for some time now, it’s a wonder why Skinshape’s ‘time’ hasn’t quite come yet. In theory, he is only one BBC radio playlist away from the kind of larger audience his music definitely deserves. Taking influence from funk, soul, reggae, psychedelic rock, Afrobeat and folk, his music has always had a sense of timeless quality, and this single, with its Michael Kiwanuka-esque, dreamy soul-folk blues, is no exception. Beautiful.
