The Skin Electric is the musical conduit of DJ, Producer and Multimedia artist Raymond Welkin.
It erupts from a confluence of musical elements: tribal, techno, electronic, and organic, melding
the natural with the synthetic, bonding the spirit to the bone. The Skin Electric’s mission is to evolve
artistically and progress musically by fusing elements and influences of pop music with electronic
dance genres keeping a mind towards exploration and experimentation. The Skin Electric’s debut
album, "Move," is the beginning of this journey, an homage to the artist’s musical inspirations.
It focuses on dance grooves inspired from
80s New Wave to current flavors of Hip hop, Electro Pop,
Techno and Funk. "Move" combines these ingredients revealing a unique pop flavor. With the final track
on the album titled “Another World,” The Skin Electric provides a glimpse into the next phase of this
musical journey, one that sparks a passion for self-expression by blending elements of verve and vibe,
sex and psyche, The Skin Electric will galvanize your soul, shock your body, and light up your dance.
I'm a space traveler, 3d mountain man
digital explorer, megabyte memory
diviner, microchip prophet and
wet wire poet.
In the outer microcosms stars are
bursting flying by; inside your atom processors
off in the dithered distance
rendering me machine-like.
Dreaming of synthetic spirits floating outside like snow.
Blood circuits and electron rivers flowing.
Bright night-like neon blinking rainbow light.
Deep sea life inside my synaptic dna
data plankton come out and play.
Android beating hearts perform organic symphony parts
Spinning down fractal flowers in my ears.
I'm scrap metal and flesh
A perfect calculated mess.
I'm breathing glass and pulsing wires
caught in infinite loops and silicone spires.
Electric wizard a broken down nervous system
A self regenerating beautiful wreck.
Random miracle mutating sensation.
a pure fake of natural synthesis multiplication.
a robot god like intelligent mistake.
organic program functions collide.
efficient and destructive
im am religion encrypted internet filth
split into mathmatical clouds
bourne into distracting, hypnotic : passion and logic
Flawed, aspiring, methodical and neurotic
