♫♪  ESPRIT 空想 - “It’s A Fast Driving Rave Up With ESPRIT”

Since the 2015 release of 100% Electronica, ESPRIT 空想 has been busy touring, continuing to expand the physical catalogue of the project and opening up a subscription service, including some subscription-only content. And although “It’s A Fast Driving Rave Up With ESPRIT” takes about a minute to really start burning rubber, the ambient introduction really takes the listener into a free-fall. Similar to Trinity falling in the beginning of Matrix two, “It’s A Fast Driving Rave Up With ESPRIT” is a carefully measured slap-dash DIY parking-lot club hustle. The floor made by surrounding cars with their fog lights igniting the fast-moving feet pacing with the jungle-house spirit of ESPRIT 空想’s imaginasphere. But it’s only the start of what’s to come in 200% Electronica, coming soon on vinyl!

ESPRIT began in 2012 as the sample-based side-project of electronic pop artist “George Clanton.” ESPRIT’s first two EP’s “Girls Only” and “Summer Night” are still considered essential listening for any newcomers to the vaporwave genre. In 2014, when vaporwave was still defined by its use of found music and manipulated samples, ESPRIT released his ‘Virtua.zip’ LP composed entirely of original material. In the 3 years since its release, the vaporwave scene at large has followed this trend.

After ‘Virtua.zip,’ the ESPRIT series was put on hold while George Clanton’s eponymous project’s ‘100% Electronica’ LP released in late 2015. Now 3 years later, ESPRIT returns with both the successor to ‘Virtua.zip’ and the sister album to ‘100% Electronica’ together in one piece.

‘200% Electronica’ combines fully original compositions in ESPRIT’s classic vaporwave style with chopped & screwed samples pulled from George Clanton’s own songs, inspired by two years of touring with nothing but a Roland SP 404-SX.
