Idealclubworld.com (Presenter): Liking this package a lot. A real grower track to track. Too many to pick faves as yet will roadtest 2nite tho :)
NTS Live (Presenter): Sounding good, need to spend some time with this to get a real feel for it but on first listen think there are definitely some tracks on here for me.
Lava Lava Radio show (Glasgow Sub City Radio) (Presenter): Loving a lot of these tracks right now, especially the UFO Mix of Belle Ville, Collective Consciousness & 3000 E. Really digging the old school techno feel to Brotherhood & South Jefferson

Spencer Parker's It's Not Over project, a series of vinyl releases leaked out over an 18 month period, comes to an end with 'It's Now Over' in January 2014 - a compilation of some of the project's highlights along with a selection of unreleased dubs/edits/versions.
Born out of the desire to play with a name, imagery and deliver something outside of the norm of standard record label releases, the British-born Berliner and Panorama Bar regular kicked of the anonymous 'It's Not Over' In 2011 with the ultimately highly sought after 'Late At Night'. Since then, the series has grown into a must- check set of 6 12"s that have seen support from the likes of Mike Huckaby, Ryan Elliott, Radio Slave, Patrice Scott and October.
Here, on It's Now Over, we're treated to a 9 track selection of the 6 12"s (so completists will need to seek out the vinyl to satisfy themselves) Parker has released, from the original driving melodies of 'Late At Night' via the unmistakable vocal sampling banger of 'Brotherhood' to the more abrasive sounds of 'The Institute' and 'Collective Consciousness'.
On disc two of the CD set we get Parker's own set of Its Not Over weaponry - new cuts like 'Instant Heart Attack' and '3000E' as well as a 'Drone Pass' of 'Collective Consciousness', a 'Brotherhood' Instrumental and a beatless version of the beautiful 'East Pointe' all provide extra weight on the already heavy project.
While intended as a compilation and a closer to a vinyl project, 'It's Now Over' ends up being a lot more and not just because of its additional exclusive content. It's a release which shows us Spencer Parker with the gloves off, making tracks clearly close to his heart and even closer to himself as a DJ and the result is a fantastic second LP from the DJ/Producer.
