About this artist

The mastermind behind the San Francisco-based Hardkiss crew, East Coast native Scott Hardkiss releases solo recordings under the name God Within. Recognized for his colorful electronic grooves composed of a delightful array of hook-filled effects, this mysterious figure is responsible for turning out such club classics as "Rain Cry" and "Infinitely Gentle Blows." Each perfectly manicured groove pieces together a host of hypnotic melodies and repetitive synth waves over a sweet mix of polished mid-tempo breaks. Endlessly looping vocal clips hover like butterflies in your stomach as bottomless basslines offer an inviting sense of solace. Each aurally refreshing track gently resists the act of musical compartmentalization.
