We find a lot of artists these days who take inspiration from bygone eras, particularly the 80s, but Iranian artist, Vispa, has gone full hog in empowering that retro sound in his music.
As an electronic artist, synthesizers are big part of his work and as we all know, the synth was synonymous the 80s period.
‘Cosmic Force’ employs a heavy dance beat with spacey synths and choral-like drones that could have been made 30 thirty years ago. However, this isn’t to say that Vispa’s music is out dated, by any means. He has reignited the flame of this electronic style and there’s sure to be many electronic music lovers who will be pleased to hear it make a comeback.
Since there are no lyrics in ‘Cosmic Force’, there is a definite filmic nature to the track: you can truly imagine it accompanying an action film, or even as a TV theme.
At the age of 19, Vispa decided to attend a music class where he learnt his trade, working primarily with synthesizers and keyboards. As he learnt more, Vispa began experimenting with his own melodies and beats, often just playing things by ear, how he wanted them to sound.
Supposedly, ‘Cosmic Force’ was inspired by Vispa’s daydreams on space and the world beyond, which can be clearly seen when listening to the track.
