about

Gargantuan is the debut studio album by English electronic duo Spooky, released by William Orbit's Guerilla Records in March 1993.

Having established their place at the forefront of the progressive house scene, Spooky recorded the album in two London studios using analogue production.

The record is largely instrumental and incorporates rigid percussion and rhythms with melodic house phrasings.

The single "Schmoo" reached the UK Singles Chart, but Gargantuan under-performed commercially. It was however well received by critics, and today is regarded as a landmark album in the history of progressive house and British dance music.

After the album went out-of-print, Spooky re-released it themselves in 2006.
