'Instinct' is the title track from his new EP, which is out on Monday
Today's exclusive track premiere finds us back in dubstep territory, as iDJ brings you a first chance to hear Instinct by SPEKt1. It's the title track from the Instinct EP, which is out on Monday (8 June) on his own We Got This label.
Based in Oakland, in California's San Francisco Bay Area, SPEKt1 is a bass music DJ/producer whose DJ sets and musical inspirations span dubstep, D&B, hip-hop, house, trap, juke and more. He has been running We Got This since 2013 but his music has also appeared on Shadowtrix and other labels.
Elsewhere on the Instinct EP you'll find the sparse, slo-mo electro of Town Funk, the contemplative Wind & Water, eastern-tinged 23 Odd Cats collab Chikara, the more trap-leaning Loose Leaf and Crush Sound (with Prime Perf and Wink, respectively), and the genre-defying Go Back It's Just Begun (Remix) with its cheeky funk nods. But the track that caught our ears the most was the title cut, whose gentle piano intro lulls you into a false sense of security before its heavyweight bass drops and unnerving synths and FX combine to create a distinct feeling of tension and unease.
