“Elemental has all it needs to satisfy the appetite of fans of sequencer-based EM, in particular of Tangerine Dream, era Virgin”.
This first movement will seduce those who have lost in their memories this zigzagging approach of Edgar Froese in Drunken Mozart in the Desert. Influences which are also found on Electron Utopia, the first album of DASK.

ELEMENTAL has all it needs to satisfy the appetite of fans of sequencer-based EM, in particular of Tangerine Dream, era Virgin. This association with Thaneco adds a more classical depth to the ambivalent and progressive structures of DASK, even if these structures melt between our ears with an obvious sense of déjà-heard, the touch of the Greek musician adds subtleties that bring everything back into the moods that have inspired the sense and the spirit of ELEMENTAL.
