Spectra Vision Corp. – Spectral Bands [Green]
Spectral Bands [Green] is a six-track EP from Spectra Vision Corp., available through DMT Tapes FL under the DMT[REC] imprint.1 As one can tell from the title, [Green] is part of a series of albums that depict different colors of light bands. Unfortunately, the only other extant entry to the series is [Blue], which was released in March 2016. It is unknown if the series is to continue. This release (the series’ first) is composed of vaportrap music with a sleek production style and compressed beats, similar to that put out by PZA and 「fluence」. Tracks are generally short (only two pass three minutes). The melodies are repetitions on a single theme; as with most trap music, the focus is on the percussion, which is basic. “Linear Array” features an arpeggiating keyboard line – but otherwise, it’s pretty straightforward vaportrap with a whole lot of hi-hats.
