The Skull School
In 2011 Alving started S5 Records and released Noise, The Skull School's debut LP. Noise is a raw experimental album that features a very lo-fi sound and almost unfinished production, using samples from many tracks of different genres.
This sample technique defined his future releases, like No Faces. Released in 2012, No Faces was Alving's second album as The Skull School. On this album, Alving experimented with vocal samples and began to pay more attention to the details, which resulted in a better produced record compared to his debut. The Skull School also made his first video, it was a self-produced video for the track "Le Contrôleur".
In 2013, S5 Records merged with Eight Recordings and later that year The Skull School started to work on his third album, High Sounding Waves, which came out on March of 2014.
High Sounding Waves represented a big step for The Skull School's carreer because it took his production techniques to all whole new level and improved the quality of the record, and while the content of his other two LPs was composed only by songs made out of sampes and experimentation, High Sounding Waves was the first Skull School album to feature original compositions along with his signature sample work. On December of that year, The Skull School released a video for the song "Contact (The Report)" and like his first video, it was also produced by Alving Marruffo. Said video recieved a nomination at the Pepsi Music Awards 2015 in the category Electronic Video of the Year.
On October of 2015, The Skull School published This Is The Aftermath, his fourth album, which marks a new beginning that feels like a debut to Alving. In this new album, Alving worked with original compositions on all the tracks and developed a new sound with a large presence of synths and 80s influence, that makes this release a lot more professional and conventional, music wise and production wise. This album is the first to feature guests artists and is his second album released by Eight Recordings.
In 2016, The Skull School was nominated again at the Pepsi Music Awards, this time receiving three nominations: Electronic Song of the Year for his song with Maxilar Break Down "Nos Vemos Entonces", Electronic Album of the Year for his fourth album This Is The Aftermath and Electronic Artist of the Year.
