Ion is an electronic music band based in the North East of England.

The band was founded in 2007 by David J. Hughes and Jules C, and they compose and perform a style of electronic music that is rich, melodic, intelligent and, above all, highly user-friendly.

Most people will know David as the founder member of T-Bass and the last man standing in the SkinMechanix collaboration. Both of these ventures typify the Hughes approach to making music. In other words, foot-on-the-floor, pedal-to-the-metal, full-on electronic power tracks with only an occasional nod towards slower, more romantic moods and feelings.

Ion is an electronic music band based in the North East of England.

The band was founded in 2007 by David J. Hughes and Jules C, and they compose and perform a style of electronic music that is rich, melodic, intelligent and, above all, highly user-friendly.

Ion's debut album, Future Forever was released in April 2007 though faced with luke-warm reviews and a less than enthusiastic reception from the Cultural Stalinists still at work in the UK scene, the album was in real danger of sinking without a trace. However, a chance encounter with US based distributor Magnatune gave the project a fresh injection of energy and, six months later, Future Forever went to the number one slot in the Magnatune download chart (followed immediately afterwards by SkinMechanix' The Secret Life of Angels).

In time, Future Forever was picked up by all of the major download outlets - iTunes, CD-Baby, Napster, Rhapsody and, most recently, Spotify. Magnatune were also able to license selected tracks from Future Forever for use as soundtracks in various TV and radio projects. This area of interest was expanded again in 2009 by licensing tracks through libraries such as Shockwave Sound and Revostock.

Live performance is also very important to Ion and, again, the band are keen to expand their sphere of influence. They are probably the only band in the UK still playing this kind of melodic, thoughtful and intelligent music, and they plan on bringing their sound to a whole new audience. With two successful concerts for the Awakenings organisation behind them, the band aim to bring their sound to a local audience first and, if that's succesful, expand this into a more national and/or international scope.

So, that, in a nutshell, is Ion. Listen to the music and simply enjoy.

Synth music doesn't get much better than this.
