Spektre releases Third Studio Album ‘Against A Dark Background’


Against a Dark Background – the full-length studio album from long-standing British techno duo, Spektre – is out now via Pleasurekraft’s esteemed Kraftek imprint.

Following their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Casting Shadows Without Light’ in 2010 and their sophomore outing ‘Cyclic Operations’ in 2013. ‘Against a Dark Background’ is the third studio long-player from partners Paul Maddox and Rich Wakley, who have been producing together under the Spektre moniker since 2006.

Talking about the album, Spektre commented: “It had been over 5 years since the release of ‘Cyclic Operations’ when we first started work on the new album in earnest, so we wanted it to be a representation of how our music has evolved in that intervening period. The writing process itself was a lot more reductive than the previous two albums. We holed ourselves up for a few months and hammered out loads and loads of ideas, then filtered and refined the pool through playing them out and getting feedback from a few trusted pairs of ears, until “Against a Dark Background” began to crystallise into its final form.”

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
