“My career as Spor ultimately was what led me to meeting Joel in London and signing with mau5trap, something that was a huge catalyst and substantially altered my life,” explains Spor on his EP. “It made sense to me to finally bring these two entities together with a release. ‘Cave’ was the Latin motto of my hometown at that time, as well as a refuge, solitude, fortification, and a creative space. Holed up, nocturnal, pushing for driving energy and exploring with sound- that is a location I can always come back to.”
A prolific drum & bass artist with a project dating back to the early 2000s, Spor is known for his cutting-edge approach to sound design. The multi-hyphenate cut his teeth on early production software as a teenager in his family home, learning the ins-and-outs of organic and synthetic sound. Inspired by the sounds of Pink Floyd, Yes, Radiohead, and Squarepusher, Gooch’s fascination with electronic instrumentation grew from a young age, and at 18-years-old, Spor was born. Throughout his widely celebrated career, Spor released hit singles “Darkest Hours” and “Aztec,” with his recent 2020 Anachronic EP garnering high praise across the industry.
