Another outlet for Steve Spacek (Steve White), Beat Spacek enabled the production polyglot to indulge in the syntheses of foreboding synth pop, downtempo, dancehall, and bass.
Spacek found a home for Beat Spacek on Ninja Tune, where he released Modern Streets in January 2015. The album was significantly different from his preceding work as part of the group Spacek, duos Africa HiTech and Space Invadas, and additional solo aliases like Black Pocket. It was perhaps more personal as well, recorded primarily on iPhone and iPad apps, with inspiration gleaned from the mix of styles he encountered during his formative years in South East London. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
