The Spaceape 1970-2014


We are deeply sadden to hear the news of the passing of Stephen Gordon aka The Spaceape. It was a pleasure to both get to know the man and to collaborate with. His work on the track, Is this Revolution was a lyrical masterpiece. A true poet with the direct lineage of greats like Last Poets, LKJ, Mutabaruka and others, he brought a realness to everything he touched. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family.

    I asked a [url=https://bestwritingsclues.com/reviews/writersperhour-review/]writer per hour[/url] to document everything about The Spaceape. It was my project and I was so lazy to make my own. But still I made my research and I found several information about Spaceape. At the same time, I want to know more information about Hyperdub Records because it's a good thing. Hopefully, there is something new that I will be able to find out about them!

    Since the dub sign came out on hyperdub, I have been listening to Spaceape and his various collaborations. I was so sorry to learn that he died so young and so far ahead of him. Both are really strong and thought-provoking pieces. https://beststudentadvisors.com/
