Mixtape #014: Speculator

Download: youSENDit

Speculator, Grackle, Smackulator, Galaxy Toobin, PGS…

All them names share a common shadow, a Brooklynite producer, a usual suspect in the CBS files keeping himself busy over the last few years, digging records, laying out spacey gems and playing around the world. And now he also runs W.T. Records, home of the fantastic recent 12″ by Hunee, and few other strange, great plastics. For his brand new Bananamania tape, Spec puts together a real bad-ass selection, a perfect display of his trademark sound. Cast, in order of appearance: Harmonia, Kreidler, DFD, Ross 154, NY House’n Authority, Critical Rhythm, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Kiki Dee, Sheila & B. Devotion, Nanette Workman, Hot Chocolate, Lorita Grahame and Hieroglyphic Being.

Hard to explain, easy to enjoy.

Spec (wearing his Grackle pants) also kickstarted Berliner/Cuban twin label Discos Capablanca with the much-praised Jungle EP. We recently found a few copies left of it — if you are interested in getting one, please mail us.
