Ruff Kutz

'Ruff Kutz' is a re-release of a mixtape originally issued by Spectre as a run of just 100 cassettes in 1998. Now mastered and pressed over two 140g LP's this is experimental hip hop infused with dub, featuring artists such as Bill Laswell, Kevin 'The Bug' Martin and Djini Brown. Ruff Kutz revisits the short lived illbient genre taking sounds from 1994 to 1998 documenting the clash of Bronx rap and Jamaican roots. Mirroring the development of trip hop in Bristol, this reflects on similar pioneering productions in Manhattan and worth investigating.

The Last Shall Be First

Spectre (aka the production talent of Skiz Fernando) continues to investigate the possibilities of making beats away from the strictures of regular forms. The Last Shall Be The First drags throat-singing, movie samples, clinking and cluttering noises, and anything else it can find into its wild beat structures. Strange dark action. On the Small But Hard Recordings label.
