The first effort of Oganalp and Onur as Dreamtone. It started as a 12-song album and ending up as one instrumental song single. The single, however, became an underground favourite, paving the way to Dreamtone’s growth.

Behind the Scenes

After letting go of Exotherm, the college band of Onur Ozkoc, Oganalp and Onur formed Dreamtone, and soon after, they were working on songs to release as a demo. They tried once, and it failed big time; the only song they were happy about was the instrumental track, Pandemonium. Soon after its release, the song became a local underground phenomenon and encouraged them to continue their music. From a considerably remote country at the age of 17, two kids had managed to reach out to the world, having the track featured in over 20 countries via various radio stations.

While recording the album, Onur Ozkoc had had to leave home, saying he was going to the "library" to study for the university entrance exam many times. He was, of course, coming to the studio to record instead. Thankfully, Onur did great and became a very successful architect near a great composer and guitar player.
