Bio

Born in Australia to Mauritian and Slovakian parents, Spectoral is an integral part of a huge scene of producers, rappers and songwriters in Melbourne known as the Beat Collective.

In a similar vein to contemporaries like Sampha, Golden Vessel and Lonelyspeck, Spectoral blends accessible pop with textured trip-hop, hip-hop and electronica, resulting in modern music that pushes the genre forward.

In 2017, Spectoral charted on Hype Machine, was featured in their Spotify playlist, and was invited as a guest for television and radio spots with SYN, 1700 and Plenty Valley FM.

In 2018, Spectoral's music achieved national radio and press, premiering with SCENESTR nationally, airing on stations including SYN, Radio Adelaide, Southern FM, Plenty Valley, 3WBC and Bondi Radio.

In October 2018, Spectoral was aired on Triple J several times thanks to his reinterpretation of DMAs' "The End" for the Triple J Unearthed remix competition. That same week, he released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, "An Incorruptible Dream", working with notable Australian heavyweights Tim Watt and Tim McArtney (Golden Features, Muto, GRMM), Ben Feggans (The Kite String Tangle, Ngaiire), Sebastian Ivanhov (Alius), Robin Waters (Darling James, Ella Hooper) and Klaus Hill (Pnau, Kilter, Ministry of Sound Australia).

The EP's lead single, "Movin' On", was playlisted by official Spotify curators two days after release, included in a plethora of curator playlists, and given spot rotation on FM stations nationally.

In February 2019, Spectoral released his first official music video for second EP single, "What You Want". Uploaded directly to Facebook, YouTube and Instagram TV, the music video has been watched over 10,000 times.

Like that manipulated vocal punch. Hearing this and his fantastic DMA'S remix it's pretty clear that Spectoral is a bit of a gun in the studio and his artist project is building up healthily.
