André Wittmann's debut album under the moniker Spur was made with both the body and the mind, in order to indulge in an odd but somehow familiar "dance of cultures," as the young Lübeck-based Bavarian and member of pandoras.box calls it. "I find it disturbing to see how all those fields of music are still strictly separated until this day. I'd rather see them all combined," he explains. Nowhereland compiles a selection of the best cuts out of 20 to 30 compositions Spur perfected during a month-long stay in Ghent in early 2014. Seemingly odd time signatures form the backbone of what are essentially club-orientated tracks. Spur, who started playing drums as child, took to other instruments like guitar, marimba, violin, and piano, and draws on wide range of influences, from hip-hop to Stravinsky to flamenco to gamelan music, approaching songwriting both theoretically and intuitively. "I aim at putting the mind and the body in motion." Limited double LP on white vinyl in transparent PVC cover with download code.
