Steve Spacek returns to Eglo Records after making his label debut with the summer smash ‘Follow Me’. ‘If U Wan 2 Find Me’ is a celestial slice of vocal footwork/soul, with Spacek offering his own zero gravity take on the Chicago sound. Bside ‘Time Is Running Out’ completely switches up the tempo, this stripped back techno bubbler feels like the soundtrack to a late night cruise around the red planet. Signature Spacek swing and acid bounce throughout. Available now in all good record stores. Listen/Buy Here.
Our very own Fatima took over the NTS airwaves for a 2 hour technicolor journey thru the latest and greatest. Rnb, Hip Hop, Footwork and plenty of youtube skits!
