Basic Element is a Swedish Eurodance hip-hop group formed in 1992. The group returned in 2005 and is still releasing new material.
From Malmö in Sweden the group originally consisted of rapper/singer Peter Thelenius (Petrus), and keyboardist Cesar Zamini, accordion Branko J. Nuss, and vocalist Zetma Prembo. Later vocalists were Saunet Sparell and Marie Fredriksson. Currently, the band exists out of Peter Thelenius and Jonas Wesslander.

Peter Thelenius and Cesar Zamini began the group in 1992, searched for a singer through the employment office and found Zetma. In 1993, they made a record deal with EMI Records, thus releasing their first single “Move Me”. In 1994, “Move Me” was followed up by hits like “The Promise Man”, reaching number 1 in the Swedish charts.
