This is certainly a milestone release for the DiN label as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. Needless to say, this is quite an achievement for a niche, independent label that has relentlessly ploughed its own path for quarter of a century. Its catalogue and release schedule has been carefully curated over all these years by label boss Ian Boddy, who launched the imprint way back in the spring of 1999. It is perhaps a reflection of his own musical identity which, whilst grounded in the Berlin School of the 1970s, has continued to evolve and grow to cover ever widening areas of electronic music, where sub-genres can be mixed and matched at will.

There have been plenty of compilation albums released on the DiN label in the past, most notably the iNDEX sampler albums, of which there have been eight to date. These cover tracks from existing albums and are certainly a great showcase for the label. However, this double album is different, in that Boddy invited the majority of the musicians who have previously been released on the main DiN catalogue to compose new pieces. Spread across two discs, this amounts to 142 minutes of sublime, varied and thoroughly original music. Ranging from beautifully ambient to dark brooding soundscapes, via cinematic electronica through to old school Berlin School sequencer workouts, “25 Years of DiN” is a wonderful distillation of the DiN label.

Presented in a stunning six panel fold out Digipak double CD package with 8-page booklet featuring an essay by Neil Mason (Moonbuilding), this release is a must-have for collectors of the DiN labels output.

Across 8,500 miles (14,000 kilometres) and one sweeping ocean, pioneering electronic music maestro Steve Roach and new gen artist theAdelaidean align their ambient atmospherics within Parallels, a double album both introspective and otherworldly. Each half of Parallels expands upon themes of togetherness and separation through luminous soundscapes that radiate a gentle warmth. Melodic fragments call across vast, reverberant expanses, revealing unique expressive sensibilities and unexpected creative parallels. The ten tracks are serene and meditative, an immersive crossing of spatial and sonic universes.

This collaboration merges Baja Arizona-based Roach’s decades of mastery sculpting immersive soundworlds with Australia-based theAdelaidean’s delicate, meticulous sound design, taking the listener through a stately unfurling of translucent textures and etheric dronescapes. The synergy between the artists is revealed within the deep, resonating pads, liminal slow-moving sequencers, and occasional brilliant fractures of piano which provide a gentle propulsion through space and silence. Sweeping yet intimate, the over two-hour work concludes with the monumental 45-minute closer, “Intersecting Fields,” resolving on a note of transcendence, a lingering hushed state with fragments of glowing luminosity.

Parallels is a testament to the power of the true collaboration, an essential listen for fans of both Roach and theAdelaidean.

theAdelaidean is Australian composer and #1 New York Times bestselling author Sean Williams. He has released music as “theAdelaidean” on Projekt, independently and under his real name for exhibitions, film scores, and the stage. Recent years saw world premieres of the multi-artform dance work Bárbaros, nominated for a Ruby Award, the independent films Life Savings and Lucid Dreaming, for which he wrote the scores, and The Magnetic Quiet Zone, an audiovisual installation created with Philip Samartzis. Sean lives on Kaurna lands, South Australia, and works at Flinders University.

As a pioneering cornerstone of ambient-atmospheric-electronic music, internationally-renowned artist Steve Roach has dedicated his life to exploring myriad soundworlds that express a timeless source of inspiration. Capturing peak moments as they occur in his Timeroom studio or in the live setting, he manifests a sonic experience that breathes a vital life energy, connecting to an ever-expanding global audience. Drawing from his 45-year dedication to the evolution of electronic music, concerts worldwide, and a lifelong passion for the hardware instrument-based way of working, Roach brings us to a summit drawn from his life in the soundcurrent — a timeless ephemeral and empowered space that soothes, inspires and enlightens..
