Charles Spencer is a busy guy.
Proprietor of San Francisco’s noted dance music concern Loveslap Recordings, he oversees vinyl and cd production, maintains a diverse and growing stable of artists, cuts the checks and keeps the peace.
Charles writes, plays, produces, engineers, and mixes innovative, cutting-edge house music, on his own and in collaboration with Mauricio Aviles as Movido, with Marc Alan Gray as Spencer Gray, and with Antoine Green (aka Capitol A) as Galaxy Group, and many others. He produced exclusive house mixes for R&B chanteuse Goapele’s radio hit “Closer,” released on Loveslap and BBE.
A diagnosed music freak, Charles has been playing and studying piano since age 7. He remembers listening (repeatedly) to New Order, Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, and Rachmaninov, as a kid in the 80’s.
He’s currently at work completing several solo projects in addition to two full length LP’s including the debut LP as Galaxy Group. And he threatens to keep pushing outward on the boundaries of House: “Lately I’ve been messing with jazzier structures and general weirdness, always keeping both eyes on the dancefloor.”
Charles still likes to see people dance: He’s been to New York, Chicago, Mexico, London, Brazil, and beyond plying his DJ skills and hosts the Loveslap monthly at Pink in San Francisco. Just keeping busy.
