The House Show… SPETTRO TAKEOVER is live on Soundwave Radio… TUNE IN!
Written by Mr. Stitch on June 22, 2019
It’s Saturday and today we are pleased to have international Techno DJ and Producer extraordinaire Spettro on the decks for 2 hours taking over the show!
Spettro grew up in the very rich rave culture of Dallas, Texas in the mid-1990s. Then, in the early 2000’s he was part of the first generation of Tech-House producers, combining tribal drums and dubbed out efx with a House style groove. His early success was driven by releases on some of the most respected labels of that era (Tango, Big Chief, Aroma, Double Down & Brique Rouge) and yielded wide-spread attention with DJ gigs around the globe.
Spettro’s sound is very versatile with two elements remaining constant, percussion and dub. Over the course of his career he has produced all shades of House, and in the last few years he has been focused solely on Techno and Deep Tech, with releases on some of the biggest labels in each genre – Get Physical Music, Little Helpers and ELEVATE. He is also the man behind the widely popular Dub Techno sample pack on Sample Magic and he is set to release a pack for Loopmasters this spring entitled “Spettro Presents Subliminal Deep Tech”. Other notable achievements included remixes for Crosstown Rebels and Bedrock (as a previous member of Extended Play), as well as music licensed to Breaking Bad.
His signature sound incorporates toms used for basslines, Latin and African percussion with a crunchy edge, boomy and distorted kicks, deep pads and trippy soundscapes, all tied together dubby, groove-oriented vibe.
As a DJ, his sound is very refined and stays firmly rooted in Techno. Spettro is a true journey DJ who equally enjoys starting the night and playing the peak hours as he does taking the dance floor aboard an after-hours spaceship.
He relocated to México in 2016 to focus on production and lives in a small town in the mountains, southwest of Mexico City, Taxco Guerrero. He draws inspiration from dancing to Cumbia, nature, mountains and the Spanish colonial architecture Taxco is known for.
