Elysium – 10 Essential Tracks
Kristian Thinning Andersen is the man behind the “Elysium” project. He was born in 1966 in a small town outside Copenhagen. His teen years were influenced by Techno and Electronica pioneers such as Kraftwerk, Klaus Schulze, Kitaro, Yellow Magic Orchestra and Jean-Michel Jarre and since the age of twelve he has been creating and exploring music on his own.
Strongly influenced by the new wave of the 1980s he started to create his own music inspired by legendary bands such as Japan, Ultravox, Heaven 17, Human League, and Depeche Mode. After a couple of years experimenting the right sound and direction he joined the band The Innocents as a keyboard player and sound engineer.
Five years later, after the band dissolved, Kristian took a break from music and got involved in different business projects. His appetite for creating music once more came alive after moving in London in 1990 listening to new groundbreaking music played at the early warehouse parties.
Considered among the pioneering projects of Goa Trance, Elysium never ceased to amazed its audience with the exquisite compositions and crisp production.
In 1994 Kristian decided to form Elysium together with co-producer Carsten Wigant (who left Elysium a year after). After many days and nights in the studio Elysium was signed to the Belgian label Nova Zembla Records. In 1994 Nova Zembla records released the debut 12 inch Project One which became very successful across Europe. Following “Project One” Elysium released classics such as Dance For The Celestial Beings, Monzoon, and the Master Of The Rainforest EP. Elysium has an extended catalog of releases on top labels such as Nova Zembla, Dragonfly, T.I.P Records, BNE, Matsuri, Flying Rhino among others, including six albums and numerous singles and compilation releases. Today, he is in the process of recording his next full-length album Dance For The Celestial Beings II , limited to 300 copies so stay tuned !
