Drawing inspiration from bands such as Ozric Tentacles, Shpongle and Ott, acclaimed drummer, Balázs Szende began his passion project six years ago.
After two years of experimenting, which resulted in a 4-track EP, RasaSound was put on the back burner when Balázs was invited play drums for one of his favourite bands, UK psychedelic giant, Ozric Tentacles.
Since then he’s played hundreds of gigs with the Ozrics, across over Europe and the US, where the band is now based, playing in front of thousands of people including iconic festival dates, like Glastonbury, Boomtown and O.Z.O.R.A.
But Balázs was always drawn back to his labour of love, and in 2014, between tours, he started working on RasaSound again, creating the tracks, recording and mixing the 45-minute album – including five new songs plus three from the original EP. The album, appropriately titled, Beginnings.
