Still not convinced here is Spettro’s biography:
Spettro – Houston, TX
Diversely talented Edward Scott, aka Spettro, is a mosaic of vivid music. Embracing the full spectrum of techno and house, he responds to the moment — be it to feed the fire of a large club or appeal to the deeper side of an intimate atmosphere. With an energetic mixing style and visible passion for moving with the crowd, his live performances are a heightened experience. Rooted two decades-deep in the Texas underground, Spettro’s following is as loyal as it is extensive, and his productions are played around the globe.
Notable achievements include works licensed to Defected, OM, Renaissance (under moniker Green Thumb), MTV, and the hit television show Breaking Bad. Spettro’s recent productions include 2011 tech-house release “Hunab Ku/Peezy Hot” on iconic label Bush Records, and “Skibba”, released the following year on Uniform Recordings. Alongside his solo endeavors, Spettro introduced an enticing series of collaborative effort in March 2012 with fellow Houston resident Alex Clavijo: “Xcaret”, released on King Street Sounds, and “Escalofrio & Sweet 17″, released on Boo. The pair also had the pleasure of putting their spin on Carl Cox’s “The Player”, aptly released on legendary Bush Records. Versatile in style and scope, Spettro turns the planes of techno and house into luminescent patterns pleasing to the soul, as well as the ear.

‘‘People have a complete different connection to vinyl than they have to download. It is incredible to hear how vinyl owner treasure their collection. It is part of their identity. Our exhibition highlights that emotional attachment’’. – Siobhan O Donnell, Team member of, ‘Off the Record’.
What gives this exhibition a unique twist is the personal insights from the owners of the records. The exhibition will give the albums recognition and appreciation they deserve from the public.
