Listen: Jeff Spec – Specnology
October 31, 2011 by Brad Crowfoot
“Specnology” is the culmination of the last 10 months of recording from Canadian west coast MC / Producer Jeff Spec, most recognizable for his 2010 release “Sneakerboxxx” and various other albums, 12 inch vinyl singles, and guest vocals and production on a number of records over the past decade. Spec’s new LP is a departure from the jazz-infused, live-instrument driven sound of his previous offering, and a return to his boom-bap roots. The production is massively sample-based, and will get even the starchiest heads nodding. The rhymes celebrate classic MC bravado, and are evidence that his bars can stand next to anyone’s.
