Spine is the debut full-length album from Chicago-based producer Blake Skowron, launching on cassette and digital formats with Dome of Doom, October 16, 2018. 

When constructing Spine, Skowron deviated from a singular end goal, setting his mind frame into different states for the creation of each song. The subconscious part of this approach glued the pieces of the album's identity together regardless of the variations. The project was made on Ableton Live, beginning with the sprawling and cinematic ambiance of the title track. 

The influences across Spine are "direct, intentional, and vast," the label explains, adding a vital purpose to the shaping of each track. "Sound design was the biggest influencer at the time of starting the album,” states Skowron. 

We're told to expect an "intricately designed record comprised of downtempo, ambient, trip-hop, garage, and more," that "explores an abundance of fusions in experimental electronic music."
