Label bosses Drumsound & Bassline Smith have done it again. On their mission to bring through the freshest D&B talent from all over the world, they've found another winner. This time it's a twenty-year old production prodigy from Perth, Western Australia who goes by the name of Spectrem.
For his debut Technique release, Spectrem has put together four tracks to show the multiple interlocking pieces that make up his style. First up, the title track, Supernova, combines crisp, clean production with sci-fi riffs. Then his soulful side comes out in his collaboration with Spillage, Trust. Haunting strings and a laid-back vocal provide a counterpoint to rolling drums to provide a dose of late-night liquid. Then he delivers another injection of soul with Mind's Eye. An uplifting piano sequence and gentle ethereal pads swirl around the rhythm and bass to add a mid-nineties atmospheric vibe. Just in case you thought that you'd heard everything this guy has to offer, Catch Me if You Can adds in some punch from Beckon on the mic before unleashing the grime with a dangerously raw drop.
You know that tunes from Technique artists are ubiquitous across raves and airwaves worldwide, so now it's time to get to know about Spectrem.
