Asura

Asura started out as a group project, founded by Charles Farewell and Vincent Villuis in 1996 and joined by Christopher Maze in 1998. The first production from the trio was 'Mother Gaia' in 1998, a low tempo Goa Trance track.

Two years later came Asura’s debut album Code Eternity (Infinium Records 2000) which included the track 'Trinity'. 'Trinity' continued in the low tempo psy-trance vein of 'Mother Gaia' but incorporated much more sophisticated ambient textures, creating a sound that owed as much to psy-trance as it did to ambient.

Asura started out as a group project, founded by Charles Farewell and Vincent Villuis in 1996 and joined by Christopher Maze in 1998. The first production from the trio was 'Mother Gaia' in 1998, a low tempo Goa Trance track.

Two years later came Asura’s debut album Code Eternity (Infinium Records 2000) which included the track 'Trinity'. 'Trinity' continued in the low tempo psy-trance vein of 'Mother Gaia' but incorporated much more sophisticated ambient textures, creating a sound that owed as much to psy-trance as it did to ambient.

Asura continued to hone this sound but after 2001 had to do so with a different line up, with Alex Ackerman replacing Vincent Villuis who left to focus on his own project, Aes Dana.

The new line up released one album, Lost Eden, (E-FrenchSound Records 2003) before splitting up, leaving Asura as the solo project of Charles Farewell.

After a quiet couple of years Farwell released the third Asura studio album, Life², (Ultimae Records 2007) on the record label of Vincent Villuis. The album proved to be a highpoint for Asura, featuring stand out tracks 'Butterfly FX' and 'Life²', both of which continued on the same path but with dark downtempo trance rhythms underpinning the ethereal melodies.

In 2010 Farewll released his fourth studio album 360 (Ultimae Records 2010). 360 was a departure from previous Asura releases, with soft chill out melodies and chilled breakbeats replacing the brooding trance rhythms of previous releases. « hide
