Having transcended such genre stereotypes as Berlin School, post-techno, and krautrock, Wolfram der Spyra has steadily assumed a rightful position as one of Germany's finest exporters of progressive electronic music. Born in the early 60s, Spyra's fascination with radiowaves & broadcast signals, filtered through Eno-esque ambience & 90s dance rhythms birthed his first recording, Home Listening is Killing Clubs. As a regular participant at such festivals as E-Live and Hampshire Jam, Spyra's forged partnerships both live & in performance with Bernd Friedmann, instrumental builder Robert Rutman, Detlef Keller & Mario Schonwalder, as well as playing as part of the Ricochet Gatherings musicians collective.
 
Spyra's chroma-key atmospheres and tense rhythmic patterns eventually led to a continuing affiliation/collaboration with pioneer Pete Namlook & his Fax imprint, though from the 90s up until today Spyra's produced a slew of fine recordings for such labels as Wigwam, Manikin & Ricochet Dream. His most recent Fax release, January in June, seamlessly marries keyboard prog wizardry to his patented analog fundamentals, demonstrating Spyra's chameleonic habit of straddling numerous soundworlds, a rich, powerful blend of layered post-Tangerine Dreamisms and dense percussive workouts.
