The Rewind No 3: Spacek – Countdown (ft. Black Thought, Bahamadia & Slum Village)


Being that Spacek are one of my favourite bands of the past 15 years, i can’t believe it took a afternoon browsing Soundcloud to reignite this tune back into my mind. Thanks to Okayplayer, thats exactly what happened a few days ago. When Spacek blow up the scene in 2000 with ‘Eve’ they brought with them some serious future sonics and changed the landscape of UK dance music, blurring the lines between r&b and hip hop. Although ‘Eve’ was, and still is a bit special, the flip side was the killer track. Still sounding fresh some 14 years later, Countdown which features Black Thought, Bahamadia, & Baatin of Slum Village is pure fire, from its otherworldly intro until its cut and scratch ending. Headphones on, volume up and ready to press play!
