i found this funny review on "me" the other day on CHICAGOREADERdotCOM.
"SKISM - At the top of his SoundCloud page, Berlin-based producer and DJ Stefan Batsch (aka Skism) has written, "Move on, no dubstep here. I even hate it." That's a pretty brutal sentiment, especially coming from someone who made his name with big, stuttery beats and wub-wub-wub bass lines. It does happen to more or less sum up the underground dance scene's current opinion of the style as played out, though. Abandoning dubstep looks to have been a good move for him because, to be honest, he was unremarkable at it. But he shines on the mixes he's posted to SoundCloud over the past year, which pile up unlikely combinations of Italo-disco, Krautrock, psychedelia, and some kind of fardled funk shit that sounds like a bunch of hippies locked in a studio with a Moog, a mess of percussion instruments, and about a hundred tabs of acid. — Miles Raymer"
dear miles raymer, thanks for the fairly good impression of what my mixes feel like, but here's the big bummer: i'm not the dubstep-skism you're talking about. that guy just chose the same name and probably would hate to be mistaken with me. at least i do. musically.
