The name Spencer Parker is synonymous with quality house music. Whether it be his acclaimed remixes or his original productions on labels such as Ovum, Rekids and Crosstown Rebels, Spencer’s music is consistently interesting and consistently creative. Here he delivers his debut album, ‘A Gun For Hire’ on Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records. Saved Records past successes with the album format include the recent ‘Roots’ delivered by Steve Mac, and the acclaimed ‘Acid House’ by Mark Broom, combine this with a back catalogue of sterling releases and it is no surprise that the fusion of Saved Records and Spencer Parker has resulted in a breathtaking full length album that explores the depths and breadths of house music. From the deep and dark sounds of ‘Bring It’ to the shimmering disco of ‘The Look’, ‘A Gun For Hire’ is a true artist album, an album that transcends fashion and trends, and focuses completely on the music.
