Cosmic Elements’ 23rd release is the long awaited reworks of Tom Conrad & Andy Compton’s ‘Textures EP’ by none other than German legend Van Bellen.
Balearic chill and sunshine vibes are the order of the day on both of these remixes which showcase the beautiful guitar solos of Andy Compton. First up, Van Bellen’s sublime remix of ‘Okinawa’ is a lush chilled vibe which says sunset at Cafe Del Mar all over it, although it could easily work at any time of day where the sun and a beach are involved. Van Bellen then takes a nu disco versus ethereal chill approach to his remix of ‘Phoenix’, which once again screams Cafe Del Mar. Two masterpieces from a musical master right here.
For those that are unfamiliar, Van Bellen is a legendary German producer and remixer who hit the major heights in the late 90’s and early 00’s with support from Sasha, John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold and many more, featuring on numerous labels such as Sony, EMI, Bedrock and compilations such as Gatecrasher, Global Underground and numerous others, whilst growing up and working alongside the likes of Nalin & Kane, Blank & Jones, Marc Romboy and more.
Track Written, Arranged and Produced by Tom Conrad. Guitar solo by Andy Compton. Remixes by Van Bellen.

Cosmic Elements’ 15th release is a big one, a summery balearic lounge/chill EP from Tom Conrad alongside the brilliant Andy Compton (The Rurals) with ‘Textures EP’.
First up is the lush fusion of summery sounds that make up ‘Okinawa’, an ode the beauty of Okinawa prefecture Japan. Andy Compton (The Rurals) is on lead guitar here as he is on the next track ‘Phoenix’, a broken beat, balearic soulful jam with jazzy guitar and a smooth funky bassline. For the closing track, Tom decided to make a track that would fit with observing stars in the night sky and believe it or not, it’s called ‘Stargazer’. Soft arpeggiated rhythms, smooth pads, uplifting keys and ethereal but subtle bell sounds (to represent glowing) are the order of the day, so you tell us – is it a star gazing record?
All tracks Written, Arranged and Produced by Tom Conrad.
