He is rapping on the mic 'bout a problem to fix
He's doing it right with a bag of tricks
I am back in the place where I want to be
where the beat is setting me free!
DAMOKLES, the godfather of synth, is back!
As a magnificent teaser for the album – TIME MACHINE – Damokles once again brings out the funk on a powerful 12″ digital MAXI SINGLE containing many incarnations of the track – RETRONOMIC TIME ADVENTURE that brings to mind many of the big names of the 80’s.
Fans will not be disappointed as Damokles turns back time to the golden decade with his arsenal of delicious sounds. He shows off his turntable skills doing an awesome scratch worthy of Rockit and his years as a DJ really shines through this track, especially during the powerful rapping with tightly delivered lyrics giving a wink to Indeep.

The DJ’s hot on the wheels of steel
Damokles is the current name of an artist of many ages. In many aspects he never left the 80’s and in others he is ahead of his time.
He was there, actually there, during the magical years of disco and the birth of electronic music.
As a D.J., M.C., show artist and piano entertainer in clubs and on the radio in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Spain he has been part of bringing enormous amounts of music to the masses.
Even though his music spans over many genres it always seems to bounce back to synth pop with influences from Kraftwerk, Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, Human League and Gary Numan. But you can also hear a touch of Sugar Hill Gang, Jonzun Crew, Afrika Bambaataa, Jean Michelle Jarre, Georgio Moroder and many others in there. There has been quite a few recordings and records over the years but the first full album – Lost In Space – is available now on Spotify and iTunes.
