Jon Gooch obtained his name from one of the first set of samples he collected, entitled 'Spore Tactics', and a favorite piece of artwork by a friend, Karl Kwasny. However, he soon dropped the "e" from the word to balance the arrangement of letters when displayed in a graffiti style. After a school friend introduced Jon to the world of Drum & Bass he began experimenting with software to create his own music.
Spor quickly attracted attention from big names in Drum & Bass, and secured a deal with the label 'Renegade Hardware'. Much of his work was released through this label, and soon Jon began DJing sets. He has also released work under the name 'Final Reckoning' with Codex, as well as under the name 'Unicron'. Spor has since then been traversing the globe playing his music at clubs across the world. After a successful partnership with Renegade Hardware and Barcode Recordings, and releases with Teebee's Subtitles Recordings, Spor and long-time friend Chris Renegade from Renegade Hardware launched Lifted Music with fellow dark Drum & Bass producers Apex, Evol Intent and Ewun.
Spor's electro house side project, Feed Me, has also been rather successful. A two track EP has been released under Deadmau5's label, mau5trap, along with a track on Noisia's label as well. He released a second EP under mau5trap on December 25th, 2010, titled Feed Me's Big Adventure. It features eight new tracks including both electro house and dubstep. He is currently working on a third EP titled Feed Me to the Stars. Previews of four tracks are available on his Soundcloud account.
His most recent remixes and releases have seen him gain more attention from the mainstream and his reputation as a great producer has soared. Jon is expected to be releasing an LP for Lifted Music in late 2010 or early 2011. His dubstep track "Pacifica" is set to be released as a single on February 15, 2011. This date has since been rescheduled to a month maximum due to mastering issues. The current release date is May 9th 2011.
Spor is also involved in a second side project called 'Seventh Stitch', which produces alternative IDM. It is currently unknown as to whether or not he is the only contributor to the project.Wiki
