STEVE SPACEK, the acclaimed voice behind the groundbreaking genre-pushing group Spacek who were championed by everyone from Entertainment Weekly to Mos Def is readying his debut solo album 'Space Shift' on Sound In Color. It's his great American album, produced largely in Los Angeles. Old partner Morgan from Spacek provides beats (check 2nd single "3 Hours of Fun"), but Steve created the bulk of the beats himself. Sci-fi and futuristic in vision, these beats still manage to take the previously London sound of Spacek into a whole new dimension. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Steve also brought in beat master J-Dilla (Common / Erykah Badu / Busta Rhymes / Tribe Called Quest) for the album's lead single "Dollar", a stunning master piece of modern soul. The legendary songwriter Leon Ware (Marvin Gaye) also makes a guest appearance in a brilliant duet. Future soul just got way sexier.
