2 reviews for John Dyson – Darklight

  1. Kristian Persson / Sweden

    This is without a doubt John Dysons best album to date. Here he implements the craftsmanship of dynamic electronic grooves combined with some very ethereal and lush sounding synths & guitar work, which in return creates an almost symphonic experience.

    Compared to his other CD’s, this one has a slightly different approach to it in terms of melody and structure. This time Dyson is leaning more towards the vibes of what Tangerine Dream did back in the days. Some very good highlights/examples are the songs Retro 82″ and “Showers” which indeed showcases that Dyson‘s ability to create music with a new twist and creativity is a fact.
    So if you thought electronic music was monotone

  2. Phil Derby / Electroambient Space

    As John Dyson points out in the liner notes, Darklight comes 25 years after Mind Journey, his debut as Wavestar with the late Dave Ward-Hunt. Since that time, both as part of Wavestar and as a solo act, Dyson has released a number of well-received albums in the tight-knit EM community, all with his signature warmth and optimism. Those who think synthesizer music sounds cold and unfeeling have clearly never heard a Dyson recording.

    Darklight, despite its name, is as light and uplifting as his prior works. There are melancholy moments here and there, as on the sweet, sad strings of Perhaps
