Free Download: The Spaceape ~ "Xorcism" EP

We’re used to less-than-average-quality beats floating around the interweb available for free download. Now when we hear ‘free download’ we tend to get a bit skeptical. But when we hear “The Spaceape” next to “free download” we stare in disbelief. It is understandable that we couldn’t believe Hyperdub is releasing a free 7-track (!) EP by The Spaceape aka Stephen Samuel Gordon.

Explanation is simple – the EP is built from samples of Voodoo Music and therefore unsellable.

Entitled Xorcism in the light of Stephen’s experience living with a rare form of cancer, Neurolymphamatosis, for the last 3 years, the seven track-stories are shorter than 3 minutes each. Concise, striking, intense, dark and dysfunctional in a beautifully raw way, they are all influenced by demons and spirits of Haitian music.

“You must trust in the spirit. It’s the spirit of change.”
