Specktors is a Danish hip hop group formed in 2008 by Sluzh, Jonas For Fa'en, Wanr and Anders "Drysset" Drøidal. When Drøidal left the band, he wasn't replaced and Specktors became a trio. The band usually combines hip hop with electronic influences. The band is signed to EMI Denmark.

Specktors started working in the Copenhagen underground / club scene and in April 2008 launched a tour all over Denmark. They had their break when their song "Hellerup Ansigt // Amar Røv" was played by DJ Kjeld Tolstrup on Denmark's P3 radio program Unga Bunga. Soon after they landed a deal in 2009 with Music For Dreams label, where they released their debut album Shanksville on 9 September 2009 (090909). The album included collaborations with MagerMayn, Pato Siebenhaar, MC Ena (from Fagget Fairys) and Jokeren.

In summers of 2011 and 2012, they performed at the Roskilde Festival.[1] In 2012, they made some mixtapes, releasing in June 2012 their second album Kadavermarch. The first track to release as a single was "Lågsus", a huge hit featuring Danish singer Medina going straight to #1 on Tracklisten, the official Danish Singles Chart.
