Biography

United Kingdom (1992 – present)

Spooky is a name of, at least, two UK artists: 1) A / duo. 2) A producer.

1) A eclectic ‘progressive house’ / electronica duo formed in early 90s, consisting of Duncan Forbes and Charlie May. In 1992, they released the singles “Don’t Panic”, Land Of Oz”, Little Bullet” followed next year by “Persuasion” (with Billie Ray Martin) and “Schmoo”. Spooky’s debut album Gargantuan was released in 1993 with after signing to Guerrilla Records, William Orbit’s old progressive house label.

In 1995 and 1996 they released three EPs (Clank EP, Stereo EP and Shunt EP) on their own Generic Records label, followed quickly in mid-1996 by their second album, Found Sound. Two singles from this album were released: “Fingerbobs” and “Bamboo”.

In 1999, Charlie May collaborated with Sasha on his Xpander EP and in 2002 he co-produced most tracks on Sasha’s Airdrawndagger album. Also in 2002, Spooky issued the single “Belong”, their first single on deviant records. A single entitled “Strange Addiction” was given a limited release in 2005 on Spooky’s new self-owned label spooky.uk.com.

A welcome return was signaled in 2006 with the track “No Return”. In 2007 Spooky released their third studio album Open.

Spooky are also talented remixers, reworking William Orbit’s “Water From a Vine Leaf” into one of the most haunting dance tracks of the ’90s — it was the closing track on Sasha’s first “Northern Exposure” mix album.
