Editors’ Notes

As he heard bells chiming from Oslo's city hall, Pantha du Prince became so inspired by the peculiar way the tones layered and collided that he conceived a patchwork of compositions exploring bell instruments as the centerpiece. The purity of the bell almost acts as a distillery on Elements of Light, which is essentially a concept album. Pantha du Prince foregoes his headier electronic textures and focuses on the careful arranging of melody and atmosphere, building intensity in half-steps. "Spectral Split" runs the gamut from meditative tone poem to invigorating and pulsing dance material, taking nearly 18 minutes to complete its journey. Elements of Light is a more cerebral and contemplative turn for Pantha du Prince, but the result is hypnotizing: an inspired release exploring new creative space in his minimal dancefloor style.

Warning!

The album only tracks are protected by drm and will not play on non apple devices. BOO, bad move.

Whatever, 4-stars for the 4 tracks I like very much. I didn't care for track #3. Kind of destroyed the atmosphere of 1, 2, 4, 5.

What's next from the lab?
