A very curious artist, who is easily defined by two separate yet similar styles.

The first is a very harsh, rhythmic sound that could best be described as distorted breakbeat / electro with simple riffs.

The other is quite the opposite, an incredibly rich melodic sound which relies on a very simplistic, almost childlike rhythm backing.

Two very separate styles, you must agree. Why are they similar?

Well, they are both produced by what could be described as a Commodore 64 SID Chip combined with a cheap digital Casio keyboard.

This will be harsh listening to some, but to others it will be tear inducingly beautiful.

Personally, I adore the melodic side of Schikowski and can easily do without the more brutal pieces, but no matter what track you first land upon it will certainly ignite you.
