Spor previews taste of new album with ‘As I Need You’
The return of Spor has become one of 2015’s biggest stories, but not undeservingly: it underlies the revival of one of drum ‘n’ bass’s most revered aliases. After building his reputation to new audiences as Feed Me, Jon Gooch’s original namesake sat on the back-burner for far too long. Thankfully, the era of Spor will recommence with a seven-date tour announced for 2015 and an impending album due out in early March.
Ahead of the release of Caligo, Annie Mac has premiered “As I Need You,” a darkly fulfilling drum ‘n’ bass number with Tasha Baxter featured on vocals. With its crafty neuro sound design and cinematic hallmarks, the song is every bit as satisfying as we hoped. Then again, with his recent remix of The Prodigy in mind, there were no doubts as to the caliber of Spor’s return.
