SKAT first made his musical education in the early 80's in Rouen by listening to his father during his radio show. Hidden behind the mixer, he discovered artists and musical styles which would soon have an enormous impression on him, and would naturally lead him on towards discovering house, hip house and hip-hop influences. He then constructed his first loop with a K7 recorder in the mid 80's... and after an eight year long practicing period, where he learnt to mix and scratch at hip-hop & techno gigs, he felt the need to affirm his own style by producing his own music. Enlightened by his numerous gigs and collaborations, his style is at the crossroads between a mental and organic house.
Here with this first project on Technorama records, Skat returns in dark mode with ‘Intolerence’, an anti-conflict song against human stupidity, the story of a jaded guy, closed off in his own self righteous world with a narrow outdated vision of those who surround him. The result is an atypical techno track, rhythmically enthralling ang persuasive at the same time. The ‘Dirty Alternative Mix’ is the contradicting version of the original, smartly conserving the infamous lyrics but transposing them onto a deep house background, even to the extent of making the mood that of a melancholic song.
Equally present and signed to fully complete and enhance this project are two brilliant remixes from specialists Jonas Kopp & Norman Nodge who propose two excellently constructed dancefloor versions.
