US-born, Antwerp-based musician Spencer Clark is a musical projectile with an impressive production output. As a label boss (Pacific City Soundvisions) or under various monikers such as Vodka Soap, Black Joker, Typhonian Highlife, Charles Berlitz or Monopoly Child Star Searchers, he releases records in flash forward mode.

Together with artists such as Ariel Pink, Ducktails, Emeralds and close friend James Ferraro, with whom he formed the legendary duo The Skaters, he’s sometimes called the founder of the Hypnagogic Pop. A term that was invented to label their music and that means as much as music that evokes the state of consciousness that we experience between the moment of sleep and waking.
