Sketchie first came to my attention as a member of the Mummy Fortuna’s Theatre Company, who released the “Born Of Man And Flies” EP on Lex Records and also appeared on the “Lexoleum” compilation. I started to hear more about Mechanical Insects, the Brighton collective Sketchie was a part of along with Mr Cooper, Legs MC etc, I then came across his “Rain By High Lantern” album.
Released Lumenessence Recordings , the album mixes dark instrumental hip hop and post rock, with Sketchie playing keyboards, guitar, drums and doing all the programming and producing himself. As a taster, here’s the track “Salute Alone”. Not much has been heard of the man recently, but I for one am hoping we hear a new release by him in the near future!
