Mikael Delta returns with his new album entitled “Elation”. Having devoted the last two years to the creation of this album, he shares a fine piece of contemporary electronic music, with new collaborations that bring together Greece, Germany and Poland.
Michalis Paritsis is a young musician, making his debut collaboration in this album, adding strong analogue timbres and rhythmic patterns. Thessaloniki based Autow Nite Superstore (Thomas Ba) shares bottomless emotions with his vocals in the homonymous arpeggiated track “Elation”, while Katarzyna Kafel, from Berlin, prays in Polish in a special ambient-jazz track entitled “Art in the Sky”.
Through the sonic images of “Elation” the urban landscape converses with nature and the human existence encounters spirituality. Electronica, ambient and techno music canvases together with distorted sounds of classic piano, cello tenutes and heavenly vocals make up the fresh, powerful but also sensitive electronica sound of Mikael Delta.

Here’s the official video for Mikael Delta’s Snowing In Berlin, taken from the Greek producer’s recently released album “Life Is Now“. Also included in the Café del Mar Music Piano Works Compilation.
“The first concept idea of the track “Snowing In Berlin” was captured in Kreuzberg, Berlin. I thought that it would be so obvious to shoot a video in that location so, I decided to work on something more poetic avoiding possible descriptiveness. The whole story focuses on the main character who could be described as someone who’s searching to find his true self, a contemporary soul-searcher. During his journey he is surrounded by various symbolisms which compose abstractly the canvas of the whole story.
The amazing landscapes,the dawn upon the water, the birds, the pyramids of snow and the crystal, underline the relationship between his emotional field and the spiritual quest of a continuous open up of new and greater life prospects. My collaboration with the director Anna Noti and the cinematographer Iason Arvanitakis was amazing.We were absolutely tuned in the energetic field of this experience, keeping ourselves from rumbling during the whole shooting as no words were needed. Actually it was like a powerful meditation long session which lasted from the dawn to the early evening. We realized this when we leaved the location and took our way back a bit tired and fulfilled.” Mikael Delta
Mikael Delta shares new track “The Strongest Light” from upcoming LP on Inner Ear / Rough Trade. The Greek composer mixes contemporary classical compositions with minimal electronic elements. ‘The Strongest Light’ is a soothing combination of burbling electronics next to minimal piano melodies in an upbeat tone.
Mikael Delta’s new album “Life Is Now” will be released in autumn 2015 from Inner Ear and will be distributed in Europe via Rough Trade Distribution and worldwide by Believe digital.
In “Life Is Now” contemporary electronic composition goes hand in hand with neo-romantic style through ambient paths that lead to a refined soundtrack, which reflects the relationship of the artist with the urban landscape.
From the immersive stillness and minimalism of the piano and the classical beauty of strings to the restless beats of the synthesizers, the journey is long and the images and feelings change as the sounds move inwards and outwards, creating a unique atmosphere, intimate and unfathomable at the same time.
Mikael Delta is a Greek composer and pioneer of local electronic scene. He first appeared in the Greek music scene in 1992, as a founding member of the band Stereo Nova, who released 5 albums until their disbandment in 1997.
