We are proud to announce the release of Elemental Level’s first album, Drum On…, which is available for purchase and download at the band’s website located here.
Drum On… is the first release from the Elemental Level Drum Circle. Drum On… represents our desire to capture the relaxing and meditative qualities of African djembe drumming. Listeners enjoy Drum On… for its ability to create relaxing and healing moments in our busy lives. Health care providers enjoy playing Drum On… as background music during their treatment sessions. Drum On… is currently played in chiropractic offices, acupuncture offices, and yoga studios in Chicago and Baltimore. Our music is great music for your store, ceremony, celebration, or quiet times.
Elemental Level seeks to help listeners return to a simpler human times where culture and community were central to daily life. Too often, our primitive lives are covered by modern conveniences such cell phone use and concrete.

What People are Saying:
Bill Emery- I acquired my drumming spirit at a young age. My drumming journey did not start then, it started when I picked up my first djembe in 2012. When I held it in my hands, I immediately felt a deep connection. I felt like I rediscovered something inside myself that was buried, lost, or forgotten for a long time. I was a drummer. These tracks are some of our many amazing drumming journeys and explorations. The rhythms and beats found me, I did not find them. I unearthed so much more than I could hope for in these sessions. Thanks to Trip and his family, Mystic Rhythms, Lost Brothers, the Unum Drum Circle at Hitch School, and my wonderful family. These fantastic people are all part of my drumming journey. Drum on…
Trip Kinzie- My drumming spirit emerged at an early age and I grew up fascinated by rhythm and sound. I drove my family nuts hitting things with my hands. Louis Bellson concerts made great impressions. Kraftwerk rhythm was cutting edge, and the Bob Marley pulse stirred my soul. I marvel at Bill Kreutzman, Mickey Hart, and Neil Peart. Drumming is an organic process that takes me back to a primitive time where this connection is a way of life. Mystic Rhythms, Lost Brothers, and Unum Drum Circles: I am grateful for my students and our shared journey. I am blessed by the love and support of my wife, Julie, and our future drummers, Alec and Lauren. Drum on…
