British techno pair Spektre have announced plans to release their third studio album, and the first in almost seven years. Against A Dark Background will follow the pairs previous two LPs, Casting Shadows Without Light from 2010 and Cyclic Operations from 2013.
Scheduled to arrive sometime in the first few months of 2020 on Pleasurekraft’s Kraftek imprint, a label Spektre have previously released with on multiple occasions. Other names on the Kraftek roster include ANNA, Tiger Stripes and Arjun Vagale.
Spektre, who are now veterans of the UK techno scene, currently average half a million monthly streams on Spotify, and are commonplace on Beatport’s top 100 chart.
Speaking on the new LP, the duo said “The writing process itself was a lot more reductive than the previous two albums. We holed ourselves up for a few months and hammered out loads and loads of ideas, then filtered and refined the pool.”
The coming months will hopefully bring a release date, previews and any collaborative inclusions on the album, for now, enjoy In Focus 004 from Spektre and their Respekt imprint.
