The Spaceape 1970-2014 


We are deeply sadden to hear the news of the passing of Stephen Gordon aka The Spaceape. It was a pleasure to both get to know the man and to collaborate with. His work on the track, Is this Revolution was a lyrical masterpiece. A true poet with the direct lineage of greats like Last Poets, LKJ, Mutabaruka and others, he brought a realness to everything he touched. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family.
