Describe Your Sound

For those who like Kaskade, BT, Armin van Buuren, Goldfrapp and Sarah Brightman. BASIC DESIRE is a Perth duo who combine electronic sounds with melodic vocals, creating lush ambient landscapes.



The group originally got together in 1999 under the name of FLAME, and started out as a dance oriented outfit. This collaboration landed us various radio and television appearances (Channel 7, ABC) and an independent release of songs in UK and Holland. FLAME¹s early songs were still being played on radio stations around Australia (see: ABC and SBS) when, given our passion for ballads and ambient/electronic music, we decided to change direction to our current project ­ BASIC DESIRE.
