Bio

Australian born, with Mauritian and Slovakian parentage, Spectoral blends his sultry vocals with textured electronic production and hip-hop influenced beats. He's accrued a growing fanbase at live performances, thousands of monthly listeners on Spotify and several thousand followers on Instagram, mainly thanks to the strength of his live shows in Melbourne and social media omnipresence.

Readying a 2018 sophomore EP with notable Australian industry names such as Tim Watt & Tim McArtney (George Maple, Flume, Touch Sensitive), Ben Feggans (The Kite String Tangle, Ngaiire), Sebastian Ivanhov (Alius, Blake Rose), Robin Waters (Darling James, Ella Hooper) and Klaus 'Heavyweight' Hill (Pnau, Kilter, Ministry of Sound Australia), Spectoral is positioned to kick increasingly ambitious goals.

Continually receiving acclaim from venues and fans the Melbourne-based artist has enjoyed indie radio spins across his home country, airing on stations from FBi, SYN, Radio Adelaide, Plenty Valley FM and Bondi Radio to name a few. By mid 2017, he'd charted on Hype Machine, was featured in their Spotify playlist, and had been invited as a guest for television and radio spots with SYN, 1700 and Plenty Valley FM.

Can't stop playing Love Somebody Else. So smooth and super catchy. Particularly love the clever imagery Spectoral has used in the lyrics. Brilliant!!
