Versatile, Spyra is! But to the point of making a Maxi-signle of Dance-music? Well, the German synthesist has alkso a legion of fans who are fond of his techno, his dance-music visions. So, a Maxi-single of Dance-music? Why not! ADSR REMIXED is a 25 minutes single which presents 4 remixed versions of ADSR. And what is ADSR? Frankly, I don't know and nobody seems to know, even at Ricochet Dream. The fact is that the music is wild. It's pure techno and dance-music to make your walls shake and to make your floor ripple.
ADSR (A Remix | 133 BPM) is closer of the current EM with a good line of a nervous bass which trembles like a sequence and its syncopated jerks under nice and captivating synth lines as well as songs of fanciful birds. The waltzing layers of a Mellotron are encircling this movement which bursts of heavy deafening percussions, before quivering on a kind of Kraftwerk beat. This is a world of diversified rhythms which pulse on a minimalist pattern of hybrid percussion tones, including castanets and some heavy percussion with noises of glasses which resound in a hollow of bottle. Inspired and inspiring, Spyra is on fire on this track that seems to never stop exploding. So is the version of Steve Baltes! ADSR (D Steve Baltes Remix | 132 BPM) is pure techno that kicks things down on stormy tams-tams and good wave-like synth lines. Pure dance-floor at its best, with all the arrangements and orchestrations we can dream of. ADSR (S 136 Remix | 136 BPM) is as much vitriolic, even if surrounded by the waltzing pads of Mellotron. This version is a nice mixe and the two first ones. More suave and languishing, ADSR (R Dub-Mix | 95 BPM) ends this maxi-single with a very aphrodisiac down-tempo style.
ADSR REMIXED shows only the Techno and Dance-music styles of Spyra. A Spyra wild and on fire who embraces all the facets of an explosive EM but which is also available in a limited edition of 500 copies. Thus, not to be missed! Because even if one swears only by Berlin School, this ADSR REMIXED has all the ingredients to drag us in the realms of its explosive rhythms.
