New York's illbient producer Spectre (Skiz Fernando), the founder of the label Wordsound,
developed a unique style that fused hip-hop, dub and industrial music.
His all-instrumental soundscapes were best deployed on the imposing gothic post-apocalyptic trilogy of The Illness (1995), The Second Coming (1997) and The End (1999), each of them the hip-hop equivalent of a William Blake poem.
Parts Unknown (Quatermass) was a dub-rap collaboration with rapper Sensational.
Psychic Wars (Wordsound, 2003) further confuses the aesthetic, by
further expanding the horizon of Spectre's samples and his cast of guests.
The result is a combination of
bleak atmosphere and murky soundscapes, bordering on acid-jazz and trip-hop.
Retrospectre (Q'mass, 2004) is a compilation.
Acid & Bass (Wordsound, 2009) was a collaboration between Sensational and Spectre.
The True & Living (WordSound, 2012) was a gloomy affair.
Wu Tang's Killah Priest raps on The True & Living and
Sensational on Triumph.
