about

A 30 plus minute set of 4 extended club-length Jazz-Step and Atmopsheric Drum and Bass tunes in the vein of Good Looking Records. Classic breakbeats like the Amen and Funky Drummer propel these songs with a frenetic pace, while Ryan Lum’s signature reverb-laden guitar chords and ambient synth washes lend a much more relaxed atmosphere to the proceedings. With the sexy saxophone of guest musician, Doron Orenstein, and the dreamy vocal musings of Anji Bee glossing over the top, Lovespirals have created a magically dreamy, late night, uptown vibe perfect for chillout rooms in the club or the penthouse suite.

"Perhaps most notably known in the Goth community under the moniker Love Spirals Downwards, with their Cocteau Twins sound. Frontman Ryan Lum has changed their sound, and shortened the name to just Lovespirals. Together with vocalist Anji Bee, Lovespirals has embraced the sound of Drum n’ Bass and created a masterful relationship. Their release, Estatic EP, is a combination of sexy Jazz riffs, mellow breaks, and Bee’s seductive vocals. For those fans of Good Looking Records, Lovespirals could easily be found amongst their ranks in talent, and sound. " -- Hot Artist Spotlight, Mp3.com

“As synthpop’s rise led inexoribly to its decline, some Gothic/Industrial artists have started looking toward other avenues of inspiration. On these releases, Lovespirals [Ecstatic EP] and Claire Voyant [Time Again: A Collection of Remixes - which includes a Lovespirals remix of "Bittersweet"] provide tasty Illbient and Trip Hop influenced grooves and give us a harbinger of Goth’s Next BigThing." -- Kevin, StarVox Best of 2001

All of these tracks have been included on compilations including 'Chillout in the City,' 'The Chill Lounge: 26 Chilled Euro Tracks,' 'Chillout Lounge Vol. 2,' 'Cool Terrasse,' 'Mondisk: A Celebration of 13 Years,' and 'Music for Active Yoga Vol 1.' Lovespirals have also licensed these songs to a number of cable, network, and Internet programs including E!’s Gastineau Girls, VH1’s The Love Lounge and Celebrity Fat Camp, MTV’s Made, Playboy’s Celebrity Centerfolds (the Farrah Fawcett episode - bonus!), UK’s Day Trip Designer, various Current TV programs and more.
