TecHipRock: The Rise is an introduction to Charis Dondeli's new music style. He loves mixing different genres of music, and he use Hip Hop as his canvas and then add more strokes of paintings, colors, and textures. One of the tracks, When The Knight Is Dark, in the album will be a tribute to The Dark Knight Rises movie that’s coming out in July 20, and Charis chose to publish this album a week before it on July 13, 2012.
The artist is a big fan of the composer, Hans Zimmer, who amazingly produced such soundtracks for movies like Gladiator, Inception, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, and Sherlock Holmes. Among Charis's musical influences, this includes Jerry Goldsmith, A-ha, Madonna, Koffi Olomide, Papa Wemba, Michael Jackson, and many others.
As a 80’s freak also, you will hear some familiar sounds if you are a big fan of 1980’s electronic pop music. The music tracks are all INSTRUMENTAL, so you don’t have to worry about explicit contents for you or your kids.
