+LMNTS, aka The Elements, are a music duo consisting of my teenage sons Joey and Raphael Tingen. The guys are mostly inspired by modern pop, EDM, and hip-hop/R&B, and have garnered interest and kudos from people working closely with Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Zedd, Future, Gotye, Adele, Rihanna, Coldplay, and many, many more (see below).
They released their first single, “My Dream Was,” in June 2017. To date they have self-released eight singles on our label In.No.Sense, all with videos, apart from for “Lockdown.” Since 2020 they are managed by Evolved Artists, and a release on a major US label is imminent. The music videos are below, in reverse order. It includes a registration of a live concert they gave in Alyth in Scotland. There’s more music on their Soundcloud page. Enjoy!
Look out for more releases in 2019 by The Elements on our label In.No.Sense.
As mentioned above, Joey and Raphael have been mentored and advised by some pretty high-profile guys, who work with the likes of Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, Zedd, and many more. Here’s Raphael at Tileyard Studios in London, in January 2018, with top producer Paul Whalley, who worked with Ellie Goulding, Little Mix, amongst many others.
Here are Joey and Raphael in June 2018, talking to EDM star Niles Hollowell-Dhar, aka KSHMR.
And here, in August 2017, they are receiving Skype coaching from Josh Gudwin, producer, engineer and mixer of Justin Bieber.
Plus a collage of some pics from further in the past. Top: Raphael and Joey in Sonic Vista Studios in Ibiza in 2015. On the left Raphael sits in the studio, and on the right both boys, aged 13 and 9 at the time, receive instructions from studio owner Henry Sarmiento (Lady Gaga, David Guetta). Bottom: on the left Joey and top pop mixer Manny Marroquin (Post Malone, Rihanna) are pulling faces while listening to something, and on the right Joey and Raphael with legendary mixer Jack Joseph Puig (Black Eyed Peas, U2). The bottom two pics were taken at La Fabrique in France in 2013, when they were still only 11 and 7.
