Spencer & Saginaw: Real Talk 12″ single

Following the success of Shigeto’s “Detroit Pt II” single on his new Portage Garage Sounds label, he gets even deeper and dirtier on the label’s second release, a collaboration with Bill Spencer under the name Spencer & Saginaw. This one doesn’t have the jazziness of “Detroit Pt II”, but it has a heavier, cloudier beat, along with some uncredited words of wisdom about life, specifically life in Detroit. You know you’re going to die someday, so do your best and people will fuck with you. The second side includes the instrumental version of the track (for daytime radio broadcasting or clubgoers with sensitive ears), and then there’s an 11-minute “AmbACID Version”, which completely dismantles the track and lets in float in the open sky, with a hint of acid burbling away down below. Truly an incredible record, surpassing the label’s first release and boding well for its future output. Also, the 12″ comes with a sheet of fake blotter paper, similar to Plastikman’s Sheet One, and there’s another card saying “Portage Garage Sounds does not condone the use of illegal substances with this art object” (hahahahahahahaha). This record isn’t available on the label’s website yet, so for now you’ll have to hit up a Detroit record store to get it.
