Skee Mask – Reefer Madness [Ilian Tape]

Skee mask

Diving LFO-tinged & layered bass lines matched with meticulously arranged breaks. Reefer Madness checks the box on classic Skee Mask production approach; icy electro hihats set a continuous breathing tone, soaring pads cut the tension at peak moments while reverbed claps crash into place with a delayed meeting point at the end of each bar. Keeping up with all the changing parts here feels like high-stepping backward on a moving walkway waterbed. This one’s a big time mind expander, displaying how Skee Mask cranks it to the Nth degree while maintaining supreme finess. You can buy ISS005 and the beatless, ambient companion release, ISS006, now on Ilian Tape’s bandcamp.
