Paris based artist The Spectre drops a live rendition of him performing Addison's Tale, from the June 19 EP. Its a telling and emotional track which describes the effects of a dysfunctional parental relationship on their child.
The Spectre, now based in Paris heard this track everywhere so you know he had to jump on and make a lyric version. Its the Coolio, Lana del Rey, Sickick Music track Gangsta Paradise and this is the Spectre Remix.
In a decidedly American accent The Spectre drops a quick verse detailing his history in the business over the last 17 Years and asks that you recognise the contribution he has made. The message conveyed is, "If you're passionate about something, never quit, never stop. The reward is in the process".
The Spectre as hooked up with Sam Days for the new single Carry Me Home. A superb offering with Sam dropping soulful vocals for the chorus and outro and The Spectre dropping knowledge in-between. Big tune. The track is taken from the joint collaboration The Sacrifice EP.
More Anglo-French collaboration from The Spectre and Blacka L'Aigle. This new single Il Pleut sur Nantes (It Rains in Nantes) features upbeat vocal delivery from The Spectre and rapidly ticking high-hats over a piano heavy backing by Barbara.
Next up from The Spectre is Voices In My Head. Again this is taken from the five track Cold Days EP and is produced by Netuh. This one has a skippy piano based beat with a touch of auto-tune, but lyrics are real and touch on a number of topics.
Cross Europe grouping of Londoner now based in Paris The Spectre plus Lisbon based 'Youtube beat sensation' Netuh from Infinity Ill have got together for the latest track Mama Said Fuck You Up.
French-born and London-bred, The Spectre has been making hip hop music since he was 14. A prominent lyricist, and the producer of most of his beats, he grew up on bands like Eminem and Wu-Tang, wordsmiths who recognised the importance of lyricism in their raps. The Spectre isn't about guns and drive-bys, but rather introspection, relationships and domestic hardships. Who said hip-hop had to be all "bling bling" anyway?
