Whatever became of the highly praised south London trio Spacek, which some bright spark once very fittingly described as the "Radiohead of soul" following their epochal 2001 debut ("Curvatia")? With "Motion Control" (!K7 Records), the single from the second album released in summer, they once again furnish evidence of just how much visionary vibes require musical uniqueness. A new opportunity for everyone with a taste for spiritual music to discover Spacek. Music that digs deep rather than spreading out.\nThe incredible hypnotic sound architecture, on which producers Steve Spacek and Morgan Zarate and guitarist Edmund Cavill have been working since the mid-90s and which they now take up once again for the single tracks "Motion Control" and "It's Not Gonna Happen", has never been heard so definitively: the stripped-to-the-bone R&B, harmonious downbeats and Steve Spacek´s soft but nevertheless strongly evocative floating vocal style have in fact earned Spacek comparisons with Massive Attack through Marvin Gaye and on to D'Angelo, but their sound essentially remains beyond explicit classification. Just like good design, nothing more can be squeezed out of this music (as can be heard in the instrumental version of the double A-side "It's Not Gonna Happen"). \nBut what ultimately holds together Spacek's fascinatingly fragile song structure in particular - how such an intense complexity of heard and imagined resonance evolves from the restraint in the sound and why everything (even the programming) sounds so infinitely organic - remains unclear. Timeless and futuristic at the same time - you could well call that magic. Spacek's magic won't jump up and slap you in the face - but once you've seen the light, you can't do without it... cause I know you got soul.
