Today I am talking about an impressive Latvian duo, that I’ve had the chance to discover about two weeks ago with their debut EP album, Space Between. As you might also remember from my previous articles that I am into progressive metal mainly, besides, I love listening to many different genres such as alternative and shoegaze. Surprisingly, Inspo with their solid character in their music caught me unprepared, reminded some artists, DJs, and bands I used to listen to such as Swedish House Mafia, Morgan Page, Dj Tiesto, and David Guetta. I am not a fan, yet I remember having a good time listening to all these talented names at some point.
First of all, I must admit that Space Between has a very similar approach in terms of songwriting with all these names I have mentioned above. Some of these incredible musicians have super progressive songs in their careers, and that was the reason why they caught my attention at that time. In this case, Inspo has the same character in their music, especially in this album. All these songs have huge commercial potential as well as they are quite progressive.
Musically, Inspo hasn’t done something extraordinary here, yet Space Between is a fine example of this specific music style. If I need to be brutally honest with the style here, I’d call it having an amazing vocalist with a modern but fantastic modern vocal mix, djent/progressive metal instrumentation, commercial character in the sound, and powerful melodies. And they are as impressive as any of those established names with respectful discographies only with their debut EP. Well, this isn’t something that you see happening very often. Hands down.
On the other hand, Space Between is musically on a point where it can be considered both, electronic or metal music. Some songs are similar to what Dj’s usually do, having progressive metal instrumentation instead of electronic elements.
