Having come a long way chasing the arts, Skinn has managed to break out of an educational cycle that made him struggle with his creative freedom. He has now reinvented himself by following his instincts and devoting his life to his art by creating some extremely captivating Afrobeat songs.
To Skinn, recording ‘Rêves’ turned out to be a unique learning curve. The method he applied for recording was ultimately a mirror to him that reflected his life in general: “It made me find the balance as a human and as a creative. Allowing me to experiment with sounds in more than one way really showed me that there is an alternative in life. I dislike the notion that there can only be one way to achieve a goal & I am the type to constantly look for the odd way out.”
The cover art titled ‘The dreams of peace’ was shot and photographed in Nigeria by Nigerian Photographer and Entrepreneur, Lubee; whose work has featured on VOGUE Italia and Published on various magazines frequently in the previous years. Working with Lubee on the cover was special, Skinn explains; “she understood what had to be done and she did it.” The Dream of Peace photo series can be viewed here – http://revesdepaix.tumblr.com/
