Looking at the album cover for the first time, even before listening to the music, you’ll be struck by the image of Timm Ewest (aka Spec.) with his straightjacket. According to the press release, this is a reaction to the emotions he experienced as he started working on the album, when he found himself in a creative depression which led to a self reconstruction.
Ewest discovered a love for DJing and production around the age of 14, and in 2013 his mind and creative persona started to change. It wasn't long before he found himself immersed in the electronic music scene while building up his new studio.
Today, he has released The Infamous Album on his new label Infamous Tracks. His objective was the recreation of the raw '90s sound, inspired by Mobb Deep. As part of the production process, he used Havoc's (one half of Mobb Deep) USB stick with his old samples, drums and other sounds in order to create, as much as possible, an authentic feeling.
