Olaf Hilgenfeld (Germany) and Iftah Gabbai (Israel) aka "Skinnerbox"
met under strange circumstances in berlin back in 2003.
The first years of their musical marriage has been a rather abstract electroacoustic journey
that slowly got transformed by the neo-hippy rave renaissance that washed berlin the years after.
While growing up with places like the “Bar 25” and legendary party makers as the
“Bachstelzen”, Skinnerbox have always maintained a very individual identity,
famous for their infamous improvised and truly live played shows
(reaching another peak while performing a 12 hour live set in Kater Holzig, Berlin 2013)
notoriously free from any obligation or trends what so ever.
With a good dozen of singles on labels like “BPitch Control”,
“Darkroom Dubs”, “Bar 25 Records”, “Tonkind” and more plus
a highly acclaimed full length studio album on “Doxa Records”
(If this is the future of techno, then we have a lot to look forward to!, Xlr8r)
Skinnerbox have positioned themselves well above the inflationary electronic scene hailing from Berlin.
Skinnerbox are also the makers of the "sbx 2049", a virtual drum machine software,
officially released by “Ableton” and thus are the first artists to
release their own self made - branded “Ableton” live instrument.
