“Steve Spacek needs little introduction to the future soul/broken beat cognoscenti. To everyone else, he’s one of the UK’s most unique producer/singers, our answer to someone like Om’mas Keith for example. His recent motions under the Black Pocket alias have thrown up some real gems, most notably the anthemic ‘Ur A Sta’ and associated remixes from his bruv DBridge and forward thinking peer, Martyn. ‘The Album’ is a culmination of this solo endeavour, seventeen tracks of riddim kinked idiosyncracies and future boogie vibes that followers of Dâm-Funk will flock to. From mutilated edit jams like ‘Juiced’ to squashed midnight wonk on ‘Sta Simonez’ and soul-glowing beatdown on ‘AI Softly’ his refined character and some 20 years of production knowledge lend this set a subtle futurism that can’t be touched. Spacek’s beats are all about that extra little nudge, that tweak of finesse and near-organic depth perception that fans of Mark Pritchard, Floating Points or even DBridge will love.”
