Mazmoneth - Music by Mirrors

Artist: Mazmoneth
P: 2011
DIN 38
After a period of several years Ray & Nigel are back with a new project with a name change to Mazmoneth, for reasons which will remain unclear. "Music By Mirrors" contains 10 tracks in a continuous mix lasting 59 minutes. The music is beautifully produced and ranges from gorgeous ambient soundscapes such as the opening track "The Vital Spark" through cool grooves with beguiling melodies such as "Spooks" and "De Molay". Mullaney is not only a keyboard player and guitarist but rounds out his multi-instrumental skills on drums and it's always refreshing to hear live drums alongside electronics this sumptuous. Tracks such as "Perfect Absolution" and "Oil On Water" showcase this with percussion playing that adds to great feel and atmosphere found throughout this album.
With "Music By Mirrors" the DiN label continues to expand it's roster of talented artists with an album of music that cries out to be heard by as wide an audience as possible.

Nigel Mullaney - 31 Days
Artist: Nigel Mullaney
P: 2020
DIN 61
LTD 1000
Nigel Mullaney is a familiar name for followers of the DiN label with his early releases with label boss Ian Boddy under the name of Dub Atomica as well as his album with Ray Sherwin, “Music By Mirrors” (DiN38) under the moniker of Mazmoneth. More recently he has been working with Boddy utilising modular synth systems at several venues including the recently released download album “Schemes & Ruses” (DiNDDL23) recorded at the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool.
It thus comes as somewhat of a surprise that “31 Days” is his first solo album on DiN. It’s genesis came about through a musical challenge he set himself to compose a track a day for the entire month of January 2018. In the studio and on the road he explored sonic improvisations using a range of portable modular synthesisers as well as a selection of analogue keyboards and vintage outboard gear. Essentially each of the tracks is a live recording with no overdubs or additional stem mixing.
This resulted in over 4 hours of material that Ian Boddy carefully listened through and curated into a track list which represents a 70 minute cross section of Mullaney’s 31 day musical odyssey. As with Boddy’s DiN iNDEX sampler albums the music ebbs and flows from gloriously cinematic orchestral textures through to wonderfully rhythmic drum and sequencer tracks laced with cutting edge sound design and first class production values.
To quote Mullaney, “as the days and weeks progressed I found myself connected with my music and art like never before. It simply flowed through me”. The music certainly reflects this with a fresh and vibrant feel that showcases a talented musician at the top of their game.

Node - Node 2

Artist: Node
P: 2014
LTD 1000

Synth supergroup Node return with their first new release since 1995! Node 2 features three of the original members, maverick producer and sonic legend Flood, renowned producer and composer Ed Buller and classically trained Doctor of music Dave Bessell.
The band are joined by new member, Hollywood composer Mel Wesson, who has most recently provided the soundscapes for Hans Zimmers run of blockbuster films.
This extraordinary collective take time out from their high flying day jobs to indulge their secret passion for all things analogue.
The result, Node 2, is the culmination of two recording sessions that took place over the last year and a half at Battery studios in London.
Featuring what is quite possibly the largest collection of vintage analogue equipment that has been assembled in a studio in recent times, this quartet drag their favoured analogue tools, crackling and bleeping into the 21st century.
Staying true to their roots the band improvised everything live and recorded straight to two track.
The final result is edited down from the mass of material that was recorded but is otherwise presented as it was played, without the computer tidying up or overdubbing that has become part & parcel of most contemporary recordings.
The resulting nine tracks range from the classic Berlin sequencing of Shinkansen East and West to the moody introspection of Dark Beneath The Earth.
Along the way we are served up such unclassifiable treats as Marche Mecanique, which mixes martial rhythms with Arabic flavours and subtle sequencing, or the extraordinary No Signal which pushes sonic boundaries, mixing custom written physical modeling software with analogue microtones.
Don't miss this increasingly rare chance to hear what these legendary machines can do in the hands of experts.
Presented with an extensive accompanying booklet that contains fascinating insights into the recording sessions and working methods Node 2 is another must have release.

Node - Node Live

Artist: Node
P: 2018
LTD 2000

Release Date 18.05.2018
Synth supergroup Node don’t do things by halves so when they decided to perform an all to rare concert in London in 2015 they chose non other than the auspicious venue of the Royal College of Music. It’s almost certain that those hallowed halls have not seen such an assemblage of vintage and modular gear before, although indeed that could be said of anywhere else one can care to imagine.The four members of Node, maverick producer and sonic legend Flood, renowned producer and composer Ed Buller, classically trained Doctor of music Dave Bessell and Hollywood film composer Mel Wesson not only have between them a vast arsenal of synth gear to draw upon but they also know how to use it in a live performance. Indeed this is no mean task as without the safety net of a backing track all those myriad knobs, dials and switches have to be manually tuned and set up, a task that took the intrepid quartet plus their road crew several hours to complete.Why bother one may ask in this world of computers and plug ins? Well simply because they can! This is a performance, a unique event never to be repeated. It’s a show where the physical presence of all that ancient, creaking analogue equipment is as much part of the performance as the music itself. And of course there’s the sound these instruments make, a huge pulsating wall of analogue warmth that can rise from a delicate whisper to a mind numbing crescendo of noise at the whim of the performers. “Node Live” includes edits of four tracks from the concert as well as a bonus piece recorded at the groups rehearsal for the event. Released as a limited edition run of 2,000 copies in a beautiful fold out digipak featuring a stunning widescreen live group photo spread across the front and a photographic booklet enclosed this is a must for lovers of Berlin School inspired sequencer music.
