Elysium - Dance for the Celestial Beings


Hypnotic, tribal, and richly atmospheric, this pioneering techno-trance album from Danish producer Kristian Thinning remains one of the classics of the genre. There is an alluring softness to this album, a haunting sense of mystery that keeps me coming back year after year. Sampled chants, drums, and instrumentation give this album a worldly feel (ages ago we would have called this “ethnic”), but it never feels forced or contrived. The original release might be difficult to procure but Avatar Records released a 2CD deluxe version with additional material in 2005.
