Spectral Sound

Across 11 cuts from as many artists, Spectral Sound captures the most essential recent output from Ghostly’s continuously evolving, dancefloor imprint.

Lee Curtiss leads the compilation with the simmering house of “Smoking Mirrors”; Bodycode checks in with a jumpy, moody little number, “Immune”; while Spectral newcomer Gadi Mizrahi lends the slow-burning, percussive “Oh Love.” Seth Troxler & Matthew Dear add a refractive twist on techno with the twisted digitalia of “Hurt.” Of course Dear’s other aliases make appearances, with “The Connie Shake”’s spiraling nanofunk as Jabberjaw and the epic “I Am the Car” as Audion. The lone unreleased track comes from Spectral vet Osborne, whose “5th Stage (John Roberts Remix)” envelops melancholic melodies in a cinematic shroud—a lasting statement to close Spectral Sound.
