Brazilian producer S.P.Y. has released an abundance of tunes on the finest d&b labels since debuting in 2005. Labels like Commercial Suicide, Metalheadz, Innerground, Spearhead, and CIA have all hosted the Brazilian’s eclectic productions ranging from hands-in-the-air anthems like Mystic Sunset to dark and foreboding steppers like Hot Spot. Since dropping the erratically off-kilter Black Flag/Double Dragon EP on Med School back in 2006 (subsidiary of Hospital Records), the ubiquitous producer has released some of his best material under the Hospital label. Now comes his most significant release on Hospital Records to date–a full-length LP filled with emotion called What The Future Holds.
The three tunes selected here cannot possibly convey the magnitude of this album. However, they do illustrate the eclectic styles S.P.Y. has integrated into What The Future Holds. Starting with You, S.P.Y. has delivered an intoxicating, liquid roller featuring cresting pads, cosmic soundscapes, and entrancing melodic embellishments. The tune’s soothing analog lead frolics on top of the airy harmony recessed in the background, imparting the track with a tempered, angelic quality. Surge is a rigid, tech-step drubbing, with the meat of the track being its Reese bassline, filter-choked down to subterranean frequencies. This track is a complete 180 from You, deploying a jaw-clenched, aggressive tone from beginning to end. Run To Me is one of the more morose tracks on the LP, offering the somber and serene vocals of Georgia Yates and a downcast guitar riff. Clearly, these three songs demonstrate the eclectic journey S.P.Y. has created with his latest LP.
