Electron

Electron is a synthdance project from Finland made by Jorma Sallanen (Jone) and Sakari Törmänen (Sakke).

They both started their school in Hammaslahti's elementary, they became friends at third grade. Sakke got his own drum set at the age of 8, and started to take lessons. He got into the conservatory in Joensuu when he was 12. After three years he got bored and even sold his drums, but obviously that wasn't the end of his career as a musician. He got Fasttracker 2 - module tracker at the age of 11 and quickly learned how to make music with it.

Jone's career as a musician started when he was 10 years old and got his first keyboard, and after a year, he started to take lessons in Hammaslahti, and also started to play guitar on his own. Later, he got an electric guitar, and when he was 15, he got into Joensuu's conservatory as a guitar player. It was Christmas 2000 when Jone's parents finally bought a computer, and of course, Jone wanted Fasttracker too, and got it from Sakke.

At the beginning of 2002, they finished the "Dragon members". Sakke thought it was pretty nice and suggested making a whole album of dance music. Jone was ok with it, and the project was named ELECTRON. After a year, they finished 11 tracks, and especially three of them have got people's attention; "Hangin' around", "Air Strike" and the "Dragon members". Their style changed during the album to synthpop/spacesynth. Full length album "Tides of Darkness" was released in 2006.
