Ghanaian-Canadian emcee Spek Won caught my eye recently with “Black Body”, the second track off of his newly release album Sofa King Amazing. SKA is a socially conscious, soulful music scrapbook broken up into two sections to represent Spek’s alter ego. The Hawk side: the first section in which “Black Body” is placed is produced by Marty McFligh with more jazzy productions reminiscent of J Dilla and Pete Rock. The Fox Side: the second half of the album features more hard-hitting 808s paired with ambient synths from Fox Howard. Spek Won’s message is still consistent throughout the entire album, never missing a beat with features that include Shi Wisdom, Ian Kamau, Slakah The Beatchild, & Lord Quest. If you looking for some immediate listens check out “Miss Communication”, “Rexdalien”, & “Moorish Code”. You can download and stream Sofa King Amazing below.
