MP3 Element 104 - Beacon
80''s style alternative-synth trio utilizing REAL analog synths & rhythm machines
6 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Modern Rock, ELECTRONIC: Pop Crossover
ELEMENT 104 is truly the prototype for the future. Combining their musical influences which include 80''s mega-bands Ultravox, Berlin and Propaganda with their own personal tastes which include ELP, UK and believe it or not, Italian horror movie soundtracks, the result is truly original. At first, ELEMENT 104 sounds like an eighties band until you pay close attention to DC Astro''s keyboard techniques and musical arrangements. Unique is the fact that this CD was practically recorded with 100% analog synthesizers and rhythm machines. Ernie C.''s innovative bass is just the cherry on top. Featured on five of the six tracks are the vocals of Chinese/Irish/American Frangee Wong with her astonishing vocal range.
DC Astro''s background is, to say the least, interesting. The premiere member of industrial-goth group, Deep Red, DC first scored big on the Cleopatra''s label compilation box set, "Goth Box". All in all, Deep Red was featured in close to a dozen other compilations not to mention three full-length releases heavily promoted by a European tour opening up for German industrial legends, Project Pitchfork.
