Young dubstep artist Americano publishes second single for 2012 “Spirits”

Americano, a young dubstep artist from south Arizona, has published his second single for 2012, “Spirits,” to rave reviews. Americano is an extraordinarily prolific orchestrator of digital music (not to say ‘techno’) producing professional-grade albums faster than Stephen King can publish a novel. This newest track comes to the public from Alkali Records, and is the most recent work from Americano since his two EP records, “The Light,” and “Bad Dreams,” the latter of which was produced as late as October. Even so hot on the heels of these breakout releases, Americano’s single, “Spirits,” stands alone at their forefront in terms of both style and quality.
To the avid listener of digital music, “Spirits” represents the future’s promise of continued excellence in the still-growing dubstep genre, as well as a reminder of how much house music has developed since its inception in the late eighties and early nineties. Gone are the days of the endless, lazily looped, eight-minute danceclub track (sorry, KLF). Americano enters the arena with a brilliant melody line, spends some time building it into a Mozart-like fugue, crafts a brief, dreamy bridge, then raises the whole fabric into an ecstatic apex of itself before he allows a single, tasteful refrain, followed by a masterfully timed close. The whole experience of “Spirits” takes Americano just three-and-a-half minutes. Maybe if the Orb had learned that trick earlier, the underground digital scene wouldn’t have stayed underground so long.
“Spirits,” and indeed all of Americano’s music to-date, retains much of its techno roots, however. A careful listener will hear keyboards not unlike those used by Robert Miles or MC 900’ Jesus, although the beats are much more futuristic and interesting than the thump-thump-thump detractors of the genre always cite as reasons to stay traditional. Music fans in general have no reasons to shy away from Americano at all, though, and there’s so much more to come from him – he is, after all, only sixteen.
Upon being asked, “How did you start getting involved in music?” Americano answers simply, and precociously: “Been a musician all my life.”
Indeed he has. And if we have another sixteen years of music like “Spirits” to look forward to, then God bless him for it.
