A word from Bashiri Johnson: “I have been blessed with the opportunity from Loopmasters to share what I love to share, what I love to do, and what I am: Rhythm. The making of SKINS had everything to do with impact, feel, and physical contact. I hope you will experience SKINS as a tool and a means to create great music. SKINS is intended to be a rhythmic journey, the evolving and unfolding was what made creating SKINS so rewarding for me. I hope this journey will be the same for you”.
