Ion was formed in 2007 following the demise of techno-futurist synth-rockers T-Bass. Ion's debut album, Future Forever, was released on the Thinking Metal label in 2008 and, since then, has sold more than 50,000 downloads. Yes, you read that correctly. 50,000 copies. Actually, it's nearly 60,000 copies but who's counting?
A follow-up album, A Fall of Stars, was released in 2014.
We write, record and produce rich and detailed electronic music compositions for either libraries or to a Director's specification. We also create visuals to specification and, where appropriate, music too.
Our style has evolved a lot since we began this journey. Hence, we'd prefer you to have a listen for yourself and then come to your own decision. However, if you want a quick reference then we've been favourably compared to German electronic music pioneers Tangerine Dream fused with elements of New Wave & Synth Wave, Ultravox and Depeche Mode.
Ion are primarily focussed on soundtrack work and synchronisation licensing. Our music has featured on a wide range of projects - from small, minority interest podcasts, to medium budget relaxation vidoes and even big, budget Hollywood movies.
We've been on a bit of hiatus recently whilst SkinMechanix purge themselves of their strange teenage need to become Bowie-esque rock gods although we're back now with some new gigs and a new album in the pipeline.
Ion's music has been used in a wife range of projects - films, TV shows, games, radio, documentaries, relaxation & yoga videos to name just a few.
One of our favourite projects was the movie Mandorla by Roberto Miller. The track Logoscape featured strongly in all of the trailers for the movie and also made an appearance in the film itself.
Take a look.
Although most of our sales are downloads these days, we do still stock CDs from our back catalogue.
