- Spirit


Spirit's entry into the music world began in the late 80s. At college in London, he spent his spare time at the importvinyl stores, an interest he shared with the resident college dj who enticed him to make the move from music lover to musicplayer. Around the same time, acid house had hit London, and Duncan moved in with two old friends from Ipswich who were to become seminal U.K. techno outfit, Ubik. It was watching them in action that fuelled the desire for producing his own music but it wasn't until '95, back in Ipswich, following a long list of Dj bookings spanning many a major event in the area and some brief musical experimentation with Klute, that he progressed to his own basic studio.His break came when LTJ Bukem played "Mendacity" at Speed and on his Kiss FM Radio Show, snapped up by Timeless Recordings. His music also attracted the attention of Total Science, "Open Spaces" was released on their C.I.A. imprint, while his collaborations with Digital for Metalheadz also caused major interest.Combining with Digital once again, the Phantom Audio label arose, spawning "Phantom Force", one of the most played tracks ofall-time, closely followed by a watertight selection of successful releases as well as another anthem in 'Remote Control' for Timeless.In 2002 Spirit finally set up his own imprint, Inneractive Music which runs to this day but he continues to work for some of the scene’s most coveted labels with something interesting always in the pipeline....
