about

With the album "Sommerstraße" electronic artist Spoq presents an unusual, cinematic feel- good album. Deeply chilled beats, lush synthesizers, hypnotic melodies and sharp glitches are composed to unique arrangements, which speak their own meditative language. However this album is not background music. Inspired by a collection of old photos of different places he came to aquire, Spoq gives us his own thoughtful interpretation of places and people he has never seen for himself or met. The concept is simple and complex at the same time: Instead of writing a hymn to a place, you might have visited during vacation (think Ibiza), this music represents the emotions and associations that the spectator has, when looking at a capture of an unknown place from another time. "Sommerstraße" is very artistic and demands and also deserves an in depth listening as the tracks are layered with so many details, subtle progressions and tiny rhythmic noises. Spoq's signature of using processed acoustic instruments, foley sounds and electronic noises to form unconventional, yet uplifting beats and melodies is more than present here. Tracks like "Grinzing" or "Zemlinsky" without any question feel like independent movie soundtracks, which is not a coincidence, since Wolfram Gruss, the writer and composer behind Spoq, mainly produces film soundtracks. If you wanted to put this album in a genre, you could call it cinematic idm or maybe trip hop. Spoq however, is never shy to bend genres to surprising twists and turns that defy categorisation. "Sommerstraße" is a skillfully crafted beautiful collection of unique, independent music full of pretty little sounds and well worth close attention to all of the thirty tracks.
