Home / Biography / Spektrum


This London, England-based quartet was formed in 2000 after Lola Olafisoye (vocals) met classically trained musician and producer Gabriel Olegavich (keyboards, programming, vocals) and recorded a track on a single day, before the recruitment of Isaac Tucker (drums, additional programming, vocals) and Teia Williams (bass, vocals). Echoing the modus operandi of rings such as for example Franz Ferdinand as well as the Rapture, Spektrum was conceived as developing a live audio but, simultaneously, getting something that could possibly be danced to (although they appear even more self-consciously arty and experimental than such evaluation factors). As their name indicate, the music group covers the complete spectral range of music. Olafisoye offers cited a like of Patti LaBelle, Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin but Gang Of Four, A PARTICULAR Percentage, Nina Hagen and Moloko tend to be more apparent signifiers of how their supple ‘spunk funk’ in fact noises. Wrapped around Spektrum’s experimental punk funk, Olafisoye’s aberrant vocal mannerisms are especially stunning and effective. Olafisoye offers described overall performance as ‘a sort of therapy’ and re-iterating this conception from the music group’s technoid avant disco as some type of mental healthcare program, the Tiefschwarz remixes from the solitary ‘Kinda New’ had been notably summarized as comparable to digital electric surprise therapy. Music group member Olegavich also produces electrified future garage area as Medasyn, offers remixed Christina Aguilera and performed French horn for Dani Siciliano, works the non-stop label, and functions on experimental traditional compositions. Tucker, in the mean time, offers collaborated with previous Thompson Twins member Tom Bailey.
