An occassional series focusing on some of the early progressive house heroes. First up Spooky, who, like so many, were on Guerilla Records.

Spooky consists of Duncan Forbes and Charlie May, who began recording for William Orbit’s Guerilla label in the early ’90s after Orbit discovered the pair in a record shop. Best known for providing one of the first big noises in the  progressive house movement, Spooky’s debut, Gargantuan, is a classic of the style, fusing analog production with deep, melodic house and rhythms. The group’s reincarnation after Guerilla dissolved as an experimental techno/electro act in the Warp/GPR tradition was a surprise, as was their experimental album Found Sound.

They went their separate ways the mid-90s. But in 2002 came back together to release new material and by 2006 to start playing live. But back to earlier days for these tracks.
