Review: Next up from the Ragtime crew, we witness yet another fantastic display, this time from Spekrfreks, who unveil their fabulous eleven track breakbeat spectacular entitled 'Roaring 20's'. From start to finish the team showcase a fabulous display of versatility and expertise, from the subtle dancefloor flavours of 'Dilly Dally' to the more experimental country guitar riffs and jazzy horn licks of 'Same As It Ever Was'. The funky switch ups of 'Just Let Go' also grab our attention, alongside the hard hitting 4x4 explosions of 'Fortuna'. Wicked stuff from start to finish!
Review: Historically within electronic music, January is notoriously difficult to get together solid releases, as the world awakens from it's New Year's slumber. However, Spekrfeks has put together a fantastic box of work with this brand new album project by the name of 'Sockdollager', courtesy of the Ragtime imprint. This one is packed full of original breakbeat energy from start to finish, from the sweeping electronic plains of 'Get Up' and 'The Darkness', to the more house-like textures of 'Gypsy' and 'Uh Oh'. This whole project packs a real punch from start to finish, with highlights including the experimental 4x4 flavours of 'Move On' and the jazz and funk infusions of title track 'Sockdollager'.
