The L.A based duo Dance Spirit were discovered by Damian Lazarus after they gave him a re­edit of Bjork ‘A ll is full of Love’ , which soon became one of his 2015 anthems. Subsequently they played at the Crosstown Rebels ‘Get Lost’ L.A. event and ‘Drowning in Irises’ was etched in vinyl.

The title track ‘​Drowning in Irises’ i​s inspired by Van Gogh’s Irises painting. “I​t hangs in our home turf of LA’s Getty Museum, and [the track] attempts to capture and convey the beauty and emotional quality that Van Gogh achieves in his paintings with color, rhythm, and layers.”

Dance Spirit said of ‘U​nfold’​”i​t addresses the subconscious through the use of rhythm.​I​n short it’s an attempt to hypnotize the listener into movement, positivity, and/or relaxation.” C​reated in 2013, ‘I​n between Spaces’​started life as a studio experiment, but become “a​major revelation in our process of creating music.”

Christopher Mohn and Reagan Denius make up D​ance Spirit,​expertly creating a type of futuristic techno which has enabled them to play at Coachella, Piknik Electronic, Fabric, Verboten and Treehouse to name just a few. They have also previously released on Maison D’Etre, Superfreq, Kindisch, Connaisseur Recordings, Culprit, Akbal Music and Endless.
