Steve Spacek rounds off the year with stellar space-age album; Natural Sci-Fi

Lucid, eerie, reflective are just few words which spring to mind when I try to describe this album. There’s a wonderful melancholic feel throughout, which is set from the first track to the last track. Steve Spacek isn’t someone who needs much introduction, as if you’ve read our review of his upbeat experimental 4 track EP titled; ‘EP3: Mvr Clsr’, which we were treated to earlier this year then you’ll know a bit about him already! However, this album seems like a long time coming with his last solo album dating as far back as 2005 (which kind of feels weird to say now), but this year has felt like a bit of a rebirth for Steve Spacek. As, in spite a few short killer releases such as ‘Follow Me’ and ‘Boungie’ to name a few, the two projects his produced this year have laid a marker of his recent direction and sound.
Something which has remained synonymous from his first solo album to this current album, is his ability to create gentle delicate tones in voice with some range. Those vocals are introduced later on into the opening track which builds a beautiful soothing arrangement around his vocals. Deep Inside channels a similar pattern and mood from the last and maintains the same reflective, dreamy feel. As the album reaches the mid-section, stand out track; Ova (ft Oddisee), shifts the rhythm and tempo into another gear, which succiently carried over to Carnival Nights. I think the transitions between tracks are what really stand out throughout the album, each track seamlessly blend into each other, a perfect winter album to relax and immerse yourself into a cosmic journey.
