Dance Spirit Releases Four-Track EP on Kindisch

Dance Spirit Reflections

After releasing a full length album and various EP’s on imprints such as Motek and Superfreq this year, Dance Spirit steps up again with an ethereal four-track EP on Kindisch. Reflections features four original tracks, two of which are collaborations with artists Mia Lucci and Jon Charnis, and follows through on the sound that Dance Spirit has come to know so well.

Reflections achieves a cohesive theme comprised of organic tones and textures, and moves steadily at a comfortable and hypnotic pace. The title track, Reflection, starts the EP in between a balance of synthetic and natural ambiance. Flowing easily from the droning percussions and space within the mix, Reflection strikes a satisfying sonic feeling leading into the next few tracks.

Affirmation is up next where Dance Spirit has collaborated with Jon Charnis for a distant yet groovy tech affair. Piano and string hits capture ones attention while the drum programming keeps things in place allowing the track to evolve and grow throughout the journey.

Contemplation sounds like a dance-able track that could appear on a movie score. Thought provoking ambiance and tension is a dominant theme, but like Affirmation the track stays in it’s groove due to precise drums throughout the arrangement.
