petch x

Introduce yourself. Who are you? What do you do, and where do you do it?

I'm Intraspekt (AKA Spekky) from the South Coast of England. I'm a drum n bass / dubstep producer & DJ. I have been Producing for just under 6 years, and DJing for 5. I've played sets across the whole of UK ranging from Manchester to Plymouth. My first 2 releases were bootleg remixes on a label called Wargames Records under the Alias 'Aspekt' with remixes of Babylon Zoo - Spaceman / The Specials - Ghost Town. Then followed up with a release on Late Licence Records. After this, I had a few tracks signed up to various labels including Fatman D's label 'Biological Beats' Jayline's 'Useless Plastix', DnB Source and a few others. In 2008, Me and Karn Evil started Juggernaut Recordings, and had releases from Basher, Myself & Karn Evil, but then ran into some money issues and the label has been on hold since then. In September 2009, I moved to London to work at Digital Download Store 

Do you feel moving from Winch to London has helped you progress as an artist?

Yeah, i would say it has. I've made a few contacts through the job at trackitdown and have met a few people who are helping me out at club nights too.

What are your musical roots and what is doing it for you at the moment?

My musical roots originate from my brother Alf who has won multiple awards in the hard dance scene under the name of Technikal, and is now currently smashing the hardcore scene under the name Technikore, having just been signed to Raverbaby. Funnily enough, he gave me a drum & bass CD even though he wasn't into it... But we've always been quite competitive and i don't think he wanted to have me as competition in the same scene as him! haha. He taught me how to load a sample into a sequencer and then told me i had to learn the rest myself, which I am quite glad about as it gave me my own way of developing my sound. At the moment i'm digging Spor, Rockwell, Wolfgang Gartner... Well hundreds of artists do it for me, there is so much good talent ranging across all genre's of dance music! 

Can you tell us a bit about your setup and how you build tracks?

I produce on Logic 9 on my good old trusted iMac. I use a Novation Xiosynth as my only bit of hardware really... And i'm loving CamelPhat and Fabfilter plugins for my VST's for FX. 

So you've just finished the tracks Bowser and Initial Source how did it go?

Yeah, Bowser was only finished with The Raid near the end of November and i'm bringing it out on my new label 'Science & Industry Audio' backed with a track we finished about 6 months ago. Gave it a tighter mixdown before sending off for mastering though. This is out on 27th of December 2010 so keep your eyes peeled for that, Released on iTunes, Trackitdown & All other digital stores!
Are you planning anything in the way of bigger projects?

I'm currently doing some work with my brother on some sort of crossover Drum & Bass / Hardcore Tracks (99% Drum n Bass though haha). We've been in the studio today actually working on something new. Our first track has already had BBC Radio1 support, currently sending out to labels. You can check it out on my soundcloud at - I've also been working on another big secret project ;) but i'm not allowed to say anything yet... But its quite big.

Anything you want to plug before we go?

Well yeah, Just wanna say 002 of Science & Industry is released on the 20th December which is Influence - The Impossible Level / The Promised Land... Then following that on the 27th December is 003 which is Intraspekt & The Raid - Bowser / Initial Source. So keep your eyes peeled for them. I've also provided a free mix to download for you too which features a few dubs of mine, some old classic tracks and some brand new stuff that's come out!

Filthy Dukes were the main act.. and in fairness they were ok.. nothing speacial at all really. In fact I was only really there in support of out local boys TANKA and ADMIN!

Talking of Admin here is a nice lil' demo of one of his new tunes!!

Another local two piece under the name Remnant Psyche also played last night... dropping some cool Electro House beats.. which made the cosy turnout get there jig ooon!

WOW.. love those tracks!! Here are the download links if you did too!

DOWNLOAD: The Way - Purpl Pop (Foamo Love Remix)

DOWNLOAD: Laidback Luke - Need Your Lovin (Felix Cartal Remix)


   I Was never really that bothered by either bassnectar or datsik to be honest, however their remix of rebel mc and topcat is something special. The two artists have managed to combine forces really well and the track is a great tribute to the original. Plus i have a download GET IT HERE.

Hellooo. In this post i'd like to show you two artists that I really like at the moment....

First up is Fever Ray. Fever Ray aka Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson is the vocalist the group know as The Knife who are from Stockholm in Sweden. The first song I'm going to show you is a remix of the song called 'I'm Not Done' from her Debut solo Album 'Fever Ray'.

The Remix is by R/D. I really like electronic music with female vocals, and i hope u like it too....

Download: I'm Not Done R/D Remix - Fever Ray

Another one worth checking out is.... the Dazed Digital mixtape, something a bit unique and different... tad tribal and foreign.... i really like the bit that picks up about 11mins in...

Dazed Digital Mixtape 2010 by Fever Ray

Secondly i want to play you a song by Dark Sky. They are kind of ambient, dubstep and experiental all i one!

They have wicked song called Night Light.. check it!

Download: Night Light - Dark Sky

I would also defiantly recommend having a listen to these 2 also.. :P

High Rise by Dark Sky

Crystalised - The xx (Dark Sky Remix) Out Now! by Dark Sky

Monday, 22 November 2010


Heres to the end of a good first day of blogging! Il also give you a couple of downloads in this one too! First up is Boogaloo Crew! They are a group i discovered a while ago.. and surprisingly they are still relatively unheard of! I really like them cos they have quite a mellow vibe, which u can chill too, or if you prefer, have a little boogaloo too!

The first of of theirs is a remix of Jose Gonzalez' Crosses.. such a nice tune, remember listening to it whilst falling asleep on the balcony in Ibiza :)

Download: Crosses - Boogaloo Crew Bootleg

Next one by Boogaloo Crew is All Green, this one is a bit more jump up and a lil' bit funky! Drops into some nice WUB WUB WUB's too :P

Download : All Green - Boogalo Crew

Last up is a remix by one of my favourite artist at the moment..Breakage. He does this remix of Clare Maguire's Ain't Nobody to perfection!! This just a sick tune, no 2 ways about it!!

Download: Ain't Nobody - Clare Maguire (Breakage Remix)

Speed Dater Moms

Right where do I start?! Speed Dater Mom's aka Joss (as i like to call him) has been making all sorts or weird and wonderful music ever since the day a met him! Anything from Funk to FUCK YOU... This talented musician takes influence from all corners of music, whether its the good ol' Red Hot Chili Pepper and John Frusciante, Gorillaz, Kraftwerk or even Bring Me The Horizon!

The song im goin to play of his is testiment to Joss’s wide taste in music, altrough electro, you can still hear the rock (guitar and drum) influence.... see for yourself.. enjoy!
Speed Dater Moms  is (are) currently writing, getting new equipment and recording so hopefully it won’t be too long before he is churning out more and more of this intriguing music! 

To follow Joss and his current and future work click HERE

Kid Cudi

Yep time for a bit of Kid Cudi.. Just released his new album The Man on The Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager ...Which is pretty sicck... still deciding whether it matches up to his previous 2 albums tho....

This song features Cee-lo who you may know from his recently released song 'FUCK YOU' or the slightly politer version 'Forget You', which in my opionion was a bit of a one hit wonder.. however i reckon he makes up for it in this song!

As for this next one, dont really need to say much, just listen..

Admin & Tanka

This is my first post dedicated to winchester locals! Admin and Tanka who together make SUBTLE. they have both been producing and mixing for a while now and now in the last year or so are starting to make a name for themselves in the winchester area. They have played sets at places like The Railway Inn, one winchesters best music venues. In fact on 27th of this month they are warming up there for the Filthy Dukes. They have alsoin recent times, been playing at other venues such as Plain and Fancy!

Tanka and Admin often join forces to make some sweet tunes. SUBTLE. they are known together, have just had their latest track called ‘Bright Eyes’ signed by Flaming Idiot.  Here it is....

Runaway Train

Those of who you have played the game Red Dead Redemption will be very familiar with this song... Far Away - Jose Gonzalez, to me its a beauty! When i heard it on the game i was amazed as i am a massive Jose Gonzalez fan! I really like this music video as its live, it sounds a little bit different and is something interesting compared to the original recording. I hope u enjoy it as much as i did...a real jem!



First heard Wut by Girl Unit when Admin dropped it in a set at Plain and Fancy in Winchester. Fucking sweet tune, will need to turn up the sub to get full appreciation thooo! ENJOY!
