Liquid Faith An absolutely beautiful collab by IB&EW. As a long time IB fan who's heard very little EW(but some) the two merged perfectly to create an amazing work. Ian's as usual brilliant synths and sequencing mixed with Wollos soothe ambient guitar and rhythms make this another must have for fans of either.. I blew this one off originally when it came out. But I came to my senses and glad that I did! Favorite track: Steppe.

SCOTT A terrific album--listened to it 3 times while baking cookies (vegan oatmeal raisin) and picking a favorite song is like picking a favorite cookie from the whole batch. But I'm choosing "Searching" because of the extraordinary blending of upbeat and chillout styles. These are two very talented people!

Robert Wallace Very relaxing, chilled out album. All the landscape sounds you would associate with Wollo and throw Boddy in the mix and yep you guessed it....captivating (or maybe you didn't?). Again it's multi-layered brilliance and all you need is a good set of cans and let your imagination do the rest. Favorite track: Frontiers.

DiN39 | 2012 | Limited to 1000 copies

DiN label boss Ian Boddy is as well known for his collaborative projects as for his solo output and Erik Wøllo is the eighth musician Boddy has worked with on the DiN catalogue. Indeed Wøllo's initial outing on DiN was in collaboration with Bernhard Wöstheinrich on the 2009 release Arcadia Borealis (DiN34). Bernhard has also worked with Boddy on two DiN releases (Moiré (DiN18) & Hemispheres (DiNDDL05)). This feedback and inter-connection between musicians with different musical backgrounds has always been one of the DiN labels main aims which continues to produce fascinating and unexpected results.
Frontiers (DiN39) is a musical travelogue through lands unknown although the sonic climate is very much influenced by the two musicians shared Northern European heritage. The album is book-ended by Vista & Ascension which feature Wøllo's panoramic chordal backdrops over which Boddy plays his now famous "Ondes Martenot" glissando synth lead lines. Between these two beautiful, haunting tracks the album is built around four sequencer driven pieces, each gaining in intensity and culminating in the intense penultimate title track Frontiers. These are interspersed with more abstract and atmospheric interludes, featuring field recordings the two artists have made in their own personal travels through their respective native landscapes. Constantly shifting in mood and tone, the album leads the listener across vast, open, icy sonic landscapes whilst periodically sheltering in more warm humane zones.
Expertly crafted by two renowned musicians Wøllo & Boddy produce a work of complex musical maturity that will open up it's secrets over repeated listenings.

The DiN ambient label was set up by Ian Boddy in 1999 to release ambient electronica that bridged the gap between the analogue sound of the early 70's synth pioneers and the digital soundscapes of the more experimental modern exponents of electronic music. ... more
