Welcome to the official website of the artist Sonic Element. This site will provide regular updates and information about my music productions. Sonic Element consists of a single member named Fotis who resides in Melbourne Australia.
As you may have read on Twitter and Facebook, I have decided to stop producing music with Evolve being my last release. Please click here to read my farewell message.
Please note that this website and related email addresses will be retired on the 31st of May 2015. You may get in touch via sonicelementmusic at gmail.com, Facebook or Twitter beyond that date.
Since a very young age, I have been interested in music of many genres. I begun formal piano lessons at 14 years of age and continued for around five years. During this time, I sat several formal music exams with ANZCA and performed at live events.
One of the my influences while learning piano was a radio show known as Club Cow. This aired weekly and played the latest and greatest trance tunes. After listening to it extensively, I decided to get into music production.
Some of the artists influencing me at this time were Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond, BT, Matt Darey and Ferry Corsten. Unlike the other music out at the time, I felt that trance really took the listener somewhere and all the subtle production details caught my attention and made me keen to learn more.
Prior to Sonic Element, I had been producing trance basing it on concepts from classical music. However, with a new generation of trance music, I decided to start something new and fresh. Something that concentrated on the raw aspects of trance, like punchy bass lines and rockn drums.
I started Sonic Element in August 2007 which has lead to many exciting releases with support by almost all major DJs. In recently years, I have been closely working with Rob Stevenson (Activa) and his label Borderline Music.
In addition to music production, I have a strong passion for both music and computer technology and am definitely a geek at heart.
