It is one of the first albums recorded onto a hard disk. Cretu makes extensive use of Gregorian chants , dance beats, and flute sounds. In and , the album was re-released with additional remixed tracks. Studios located in Cretu's home on the Spanish island of Ibiza. Antiphon ". The vocals were used without permission which led to a lawsuit.
Cretu developed the idea of sampling in a new direction. Though samples of up to several seconds' length had been used extensively in hip-hop for decades and in electronic genres by artists such as Jean-Michel Jarre and Klaus Schulze , Cretu built his music around much longer previously recorded sequences, which was novel both to the New Age audience and to the listening public in general.
The Gregorian chant " Procedamus in pace! The first, " Sadeness ", received the most attention through its unique and previously unheard mix of Gregorian chants and dance beat. The track features triangles and synthesized shakuhachi flutes with French lyrics and breathy sounds from Sandra, as well as samples from "Inifinity" by Greek band Aphrodite's Child , all of which was highly unusual to the ears of the public at the time.
As for the male voice speaking in French during the track, Cretu only described him as a good friend of his. Reversed chants signal the start of "Sadeness Reprise " and continues with a short piano theme based on the earlier shakuhachi flutes. The flute returns as chants of " Hosanna " gradually bring "Principles of Lust" to an end.

And I always come back to this one, and always will… Cretu is the master of atmosphere, he knows how to make things sound the way they should sound. He is a great music engineer, at first place. And I hope that Enigma 8 will be back to roots. First 3 albums are masterpiece.
Thank You, MC. I have admired the music that enigma created including all the albums and singles that were ever made, However over the last week i decided to do an indeph research on enigma IE Michael Cretu and everything that he enigma have done and what was used and were a lot of it came from.
I,m disappointed to find that in the first three albums Michael used so many samples that came from various artists to put those first 3 albums together. Michael was sued for several samples and i cant believe he still uses other people samples to this day to make his so called music. Sadeness Part 1 was a song beyond its time! It was No1 in Greece for more that 8 consecutive weeks, if I remember correctly and I was years old!
Cretu changed the industry by creating a music like no other, leading its standards to a higher level! Eight albums, eight masterpieces, eight rivers of belief! Its been my go to music for years. Hope to see more jams come from them soon. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
