Extensive Definition

Spooky is a British house/techno duo consisting of Duncan Forbes and Charlie May. They debuted with Gargantuan in 1993 after signing to Guerilla Records. In 1995 and 1996 they released three EPs (Clank, Stereo and Shunt) on their own Generic Records label, followed quickly in mid-1996 by their second album, Found Sound. Two singles from this album were released: Fingerbobs and Bamboo.
In 1999, Charlie May collaborated with Sasha on his Xpander EP, and in 2002 he co-produced some tracks on Sasha's Airdrawndagger album. The same year saw the release of Belong, the first Spooky single on Deviant Records, which Sasha later used on his mix album Involver. A white label single, Andromeda, was released in 2003
A single entitled Strange Addiction was given a limited release in 2005 on Spooky's new self-owned label, "Strange Addiction" featured in a trailer for the critically acclaimed The Great Global Warming Swindle which broadcast on British analogue Channel Channel 4 in March. This was followed in September 2006 with the release of No Return as a download and promotional CD. Spooky later bought back the rights to their entire back catalogue from the 5 record companies that previously owned their music, which had all gone out of business.
