Formed in 1997, skin contact grew out of founder Kevin Breidenbach’s interest in both electronic music & computers. Early works were influenced heavily by the EBM & industrial dance music of the 90’s, also incorporating other electronic elements. Over time, other influences have crept in, including drum & bass, power/rhythmic noise, and IDM. Reviews have cited SC’s music as being “meticulously sculpted”, “expertly engineered”, and “intelligent”.
In addition to SC, Kevin has another solo electronic project called Fugue State, which leans more towards the ambient/experimental/IDM side of things. Both projects are credited with a number of remixes. He has also been involved with two collaborative projects- Cogitate, with Rick Bakos of Gross National Produkt (3 tracks were recorded in 2001 & released online); and Krushed Opiates, with D. Smith & Al Warr. KO released an album on DSBP records in 2002 entitled Driving The Two-Dimensional Highway, which was well-received by critics & listeners, though not a huge success.http://www.skincontact.com
