After a seven year break Space Invadas have returned with a brand new single featuring Melbourne MC Remi. ‘Wild World ft. Remi’ is the first new material from Space Invadas since their debut record Soul-Fi, and will appear on their second album Wild World set for release via Invada Records / Remote Control Records in early 2018.
‘Wild World ft. Remi’ is a jazz infused soul / hip hop track where Steve Spacek and Remi converse about the amazing and crazy world we are living in. Spacek sings about the search for our own meaning and identity in the world and the natural beauty of our planet that most of us take for granted. Remi returns the call and makes social comment on current events and the role of money in our society, bringing it back to the bigger picture of community playing an important role for our survival.
With its roots in the world of modern soul, Wild World touches on many other genres of contemporary music, especially hip hop. Featured album vocalists include MC’s Guilty Simpson and Remi along with soul vocalist Natalie Slade.
Made up of Katalyst and Steve Spacek, Space Invadas debut record Soul-Fi received critical acclaim both locally and internationally. It was nominated for the Best Urban Album ARIA Award in 2010 and was championed by taste makers such as Giles Peterson in the UK, Garth Trinidad on KCRW in LA, Tyler Askew in NYC, Andrew Jervis (ex-Ubiquity, Bandcamp) in San Fran to name just a few.
