by Steve Spacek

Spacek's constant push for innovation drives this experimental downtempo experience into places you can only dream of.


Steve White is a pioneer, from his earliest incarnations in Stex at the beginning of the 90s. Collaborating with the likes of Johnny Marr(The Smiths) and Dave Ball(Soft Cell)to the present day as Steve Spacek, he has pushed boundaries with aesthetics, innovation and technology. Throughout his career he has released music on some of the most forward-thinking labels across the musical spectrum- Island Universal, Warp, !K7, Eglo, Ninjatune, Exit Records and now his own imprint, SPA. Midway through the 90’s and alongside Morgan Zarate and Edmond Cavill, he formed the band Spacek, a group that would innovate and define a new type of electronic soul music. Two acclaimed albums followed: Curvatia and Vintage Hi Tech (Island Universal/!K7). Steve Spacek's next endeavor would be his first solo record: Space Shift, an instant classic that featured household names such a J Dilla(rip), Thundercat and the late grate Leon Ware - author to notable works for Minnie Riperton, Marvin Gay and Michael Jackson. Next, Steve’s most storied contribution to Exit Records would be the Black Pocket project, an electronic instrumental hip hop album, developing previously explored themes in downtempo electronica. It was with fellow explorer Mark Pritchard that the Africa HiTech (Via Warp Records) project was born. Hard to pin down in words but instantly recognisable by ear. Sampling Ini Kamoze on their smash single ‘Out In the Streets’ and Sun Ra for ‘Light the Way’. It was with Ninjatune in 2015 that he released his next solo record as Beat Spacek titled Modern Streets. An exploration in iOS beat making via contemporary genres- newave, soul and reggae, shedding previous workflows in favour of developing his creative discipline further, using said iOS apps! For 2018 and beyond Steve is working with Alexander Nut for projects for Eglo and his own label SPA. Along with Invadas Records and Remote Controller for the (2018) released Space Invadas record- ‘Wild World’, which sees Spacek joining forces with well respected Australian producer Katalyst. Feat guest Guilty Simpson, Remi and Natalie Slade. Last off, Steve has just released the second chapter via his BlackPocket moniker. Utilising subtle guest vibes via the amazing Swedish soul and RnB vocalist, Fatima. This offering a mini LP once again on Exit. From Newave soul to ambient dreamscapes, Spacek takes it there and everywhere else for that matter. Never one to rest and always onto the next, look out for Steve’s new and upcoming release via Kamal Williams(Henry Wu) Black Focus label. This one titled Houses and feat a selection of Steve’s take on that ever popular four to the floor genre. Slated for early 2020 release, hold tight! Ever the futurist Steve is not one to rest on previous achievements, watch this Space(k)
