Strongly representing dubstep culture in New Zealand, Spec, who is exclusively signed to Uprise Audio, is widely known for his ability to carefully craft bass-driven atmospheres using the perfect balance of weight, space and minimalism. As one of the first artists to be signed by Seven to Uprise a few years ago, Spec's first release, the critically acclaimed Titan EP, firmly secured the producer's roots within the dubstep ranks, as the EP lingered at the top of the sales charts for weeks after its release. Needless to say, Spec's second release, the four-track Metaphysics EP, has been very much anticipated.
Spec's new Metaphysics EP boasts four highly distinct, yet cohesive tracks that showcase the wide reaches of the producer's creative capabilities. Spec's aptness for successfully positioning jarring growls against juxtaposed, contrasting melodies stands as the highlight of the entire release, heard throughout the EP's title track as well as "Crossbreed." Metaphysics climaxes with "Shadows," easily the release's filthiest production, while its final track, "Lazy Days," serves as the perfect decompression to an overall stellar deep dubstep collection.
