8/10 Brian Staff review, 02 February 2007
Intrigued by this CD from SPOOKBOY called 'Eclectica'. Doing roundly what it says on the low res inlay, this is a funky, diverse trawl throgh an electronically inclined mind with a lorra love & a healthy dash of fun. Beginning with a sprint through toytown Propellerheads territory before embarking on a woozy ride on a Caribbean ghosttrain. A cyclic head freak of a ride that'll make you feel a little sick but amused & entertained all the same. It then goes like bendy Wagon Christ with eerie synths. Then comes the crackers hamster wheel jungle. Proper hyper lo-fi & monged out. Further experiments in sinister sound textures come later, reminding me a little of the kind of dark slo-mo breaks stuff Witchman used to come out with years ago. This is worth a punt if you support quirky bedroom musicians working within the confines of little or no finance but compensating with a strong set of ideas & a healthy dollop of humour. A really enjoyable albeit schizo trip.

10/10 Ralph Mitchard Customer review, 13th February 2007

Most electronica leaves me cold but this collection of sound sculptures and dance grooves by Bristol's Spookboy is unique. Blending psychedelia, funk and jazz the tracks on this collection are well constructed and multi-layered - like film soundtracks for espionage movies yet to be made. Each song has its own pace and ambience but the overall mood of this compilation is energetic and fresh. Opening track Mont Blanc is on the Myspace linked above and is as cool as the mountain it takes its name from. King of the Hill is a sleazy r'n'b groove, and Penny Sanchez is a slice of Jazzadelica that gets your toes tapping and your mind wandering.
Available from Norman Records

10/10 Anton K. Jettstrake Customer review,

Sources close to Spookboy tell of stroboscopic phases to the creative process: laying in the dark staring at the ceiling, and the illuminated work phrenzy where his varied inspirations are transmuted into music and cover art. Eclectica by Spookboy is warped, accomplished and surreal, as well as varied in mood and style. A slice of the contemporary musical underground that entertains and challenges.
