Synth Single Review: "Speed Demon" by Russell Nash

Karl is a longtime freelancer who's passionate about music, art, and writing.


Russell Nash’s Speed Demon captures the sensations of excitement and the adrenaline rush that only pure speed can generate. Rapidly rushing, hard-edged bass and the roar of a powerful engine bursts into life before tires squeal and the dynamic drumbeat pushes the song forward. The high, bright lead synth sings out an uplifting melody that creates a soaring feeling. After a drum flourish, glowing synth flares through the music.

The main melody is full of positive emotion as the shimmering lead synth calls out over the steady drums and bass. The melody sings out passionately as the powerful engine thunders into the music while the driving beat presses on. A whirling synth solo unfolds before launching into the inspiring main melody over the charging beat. Through it all, the engine snarls and roars. This is music for dancing a sports car down a twisting asphalt ribbon with your pulse pounding.
