Elephant Skeletons sounds like a Crew of Bohemian Rockers threw a disco dance marathon. Velvety Vocoded Vocals and Kaleidoscopic bursts of Circus Horns take you on an Electro Sonic Journey. Elephant Skeletons is the soundtrack to the party everyone wishes they knew about. Driving beats melded with Mysterious Sounds & Symbols create a sound that’s simultaneously cutting-edge-danceable and filled with serious soul.
Ben Rama is a progressive techno producer from eastern Canada. His unique blend of deep driving tech grooves and subtle, haunting melodies has captivated dance floors ever since unveiling his live set in 2010. Heavily rooted in the progressive psytrance of the early-to-mid 2000s, and drawing upon influences of more modern techno movements, Ben’s sound is able to encompass both aspects of light and dark, often within the same track. While not one to shy away from hypnosis inducing melodic structures – some of the fresh sounds emanating from the Rama studios are decidedly darker in tone, a reflection of Ben’s interest in dark and psychedelic minimal techno.
With a background in both classical and electronic music, Bardic Beats’ approach to music is unique. His education in World Music & Culture and Violin performance. along with his experience in Electronic Music Production and a decade performing as a DJ around Canadas East Coast, gives him a wide skill set necessary to create and fuse together a variety of musical styles.
Drawing from a variety of musical cultures a combination of raw natural sounds found in everyday life, instruments found around the world, virtual instruments and synthesizers are used to create a complex, fusion based wall of sound.
