Skin From Skunk Anansie
As well as fronting one of the UK’s key bands Deborah Anne Dyer, a.k.a Skin is a multi-talented artist involved in varied projects. Being also an established DJ, playing "tech house" Skin is coming to Istanbul on June 16th with her DJ set.
One of Britain’s leading female rock singers Skin is also a fashion icon, a renowned DJ, a charity activist. Born and brought up in Brixton, she defied expectations as a black woman vocalist by diving headlong into hardcore rock, rather than becoming a soul session singer. Since she emerged in the early ‘90s with Skunk Anansie, Skin has been a groundbreaking presence.
In the ‘90s Skunk Anansie dominated the album charts with Paranoid and Sunburnt (1995), Stoosh (1995) and Post Orgasmic Chill (1996). They had a succession of hit singles including the devastating ballads ‘Brazen (Weep)’, ‘Hedonism (Just Because You Feel Good)’, and ‘Weak’, where, with her rich, soulful voice Skin seemed to reach deep inside to draw out powerful emotion.
Skin launched a solo career, releasing and touring the albums Fleshwounds in 2003 and Fake Chemical State in 2006. The band couldn\'t resist the urge to make music together anymore so they got back together, in 2009.
