Bio

Australian born to Mauritian and Slovakian parents, Spectoral is an artist rising out of the vibrant, live performing scene of producers and songwriters in Melbourne.

Known for his sultry pop vocal style, Spectoral blends intimate lyricism with his unique brand of textured hip-hop, indie electronic and indie-RnB influenced production.

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 coverage, premiering with SCENESTR nationally, airing on stations around the country including SYN, Radio Adelaide, Southern FM, Plenty Valley, 3WBC and Bondi just to name a few.

In October 2018, Spectoral was featured on both Triple J and Triple J Unearthed several times thanks to his signature reinterpretation of DMAs' "The End". That same week he released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, "An Incorruptible Dream", working with notable Australian heavyweights such as 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 its release, included in a plethora of curator playlists, and given spot rotation on FM stations nationally.

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.
