    He's had a few releases before his TOV tunes.

    One on Damaged Minds, one on Nite, and his tune 'Nebulos' was due on Outbreak Limited but that didn't happen in the end for various reasons.

    Spor has also released tunes as Final Reckoning, this alias is used when he works alongside Codex.

    I hope that helps :)

    Is he the fellow who called himself "Sporophyte"?

    Who did tracks like "Landscaping", and "Carbon"?

    I thought maybe he shortened his handle to make it easy to repeat and remember. Bummer, I liked sporophyte's tracks. It would have been nice to see him get recognition for his tunes.

    I think the closest he came was having a song stolen and released but luckily it got rumbled!
    Shame to see hardworking guys like him disappear, could have pictured him going far with his engineering skills.

    Back to Spor, also a great engineer!

    Excellent producer, safe chap too. My favourites are Brickbeats, Outbroken, Haywire and Insecticide. :slayer:

    Of course, Nebulos/Nebulous got reworked a little bit, and released.


    First vinyl of his stuff I bought was DMIND008, and it was well warped - but still played to death :D Heard some stuff of his a while before he got his stuff out onto vinyl. He got some of his Final Reckoning stuff cained by Andy C :D well good.

    I've bought at least 2 or 3 EPs recently solely for the reason that there's a Spor track on it, I like his style that much. And it's progressed! His mastering skills have definitely progressed too... And similarly, his style has evolved. Not changed, just evolved. Wicked stuff.

    Well, 'Nebulous' didn't come out in the end.

    But a track called 'Outbroken' came out on Renegade Hardware, which was slightly similar :teeth:

    Is that why they renamed Bounce Your Way Out to Haywire? (Or am I not remembering the clip I had very well :teeth: )

    I know, I was referring to the label and Spor. Actually the clip I had said Final Reckoning on it too.
