||When it was released in 1996 on the AD Music label, 'Elysian
Fields' received tremendous critical acclaim. Snippets of the album were heard in 1995,
when AD Music's David Wright, impressed with Bekki's demo tape, decided to put two tracks
on the 1995 AD sampler CD. These pieces,
'Megaera' and 'Elysian Fields (part 1)' became the first and second tracks on Bekki's
debut album. Originally called 'Twilight's Child', (this title was dropped because it
was considered too kitsch), 'Elysian Fields' continues to receive frequent airplay from
all four corners of the globe, and remains an excellent seller.
Tracks from the album
were featured on compilation albums from Italy and Germany; indeed, public reaction to her
music in Germany earned Bekki the place of 10th best newcomer in the 1997 Schwingungen
awards. In addition, 'Elysian Fields' was the second best-selling CD for 1996 in
Derby's Midas Chart, as well as ranking in the top 10 of many radio playlists from both
Europe and the USA during 1996 and 1997, notably the syndicated 'Echoes' radio programme.
Bekki's favourite track is 'In the Arms of Morpheus' - she says that she finds it
relaxing. That said, she actually prefers Mass Panic's remix, done for the Trance AD compilation album.
