Part of the raison d'être of the DiN label has always been about collaborations and "Exit Strategy" continues this tradition with a new joint venture between label boss Ian Boddy and Parallel Worlds. Greek electronic musician Bakis Sirros has had two well received releases previously on DiN under the moniker of Parallel Worlds namely Obsessive Surrealism (DiN26 2007) and Shade (DiN32 2009). Outside of DiN he has also collaborated with Italian ambient master Alio Die, IDM/electronica artist Ingo Zobel and ambient/experimental musician Steve Law.
Both Boddy & Sirros have a long, well documented love of analogue modular synthesisers and the organic sounds and rhythms these instruments can produce so in many ways it was inevitable that these two musicians would collaborate at some point. Sirros started the ball rolling with the composition of a series of both ambient soundscapes and more structured multilayered compositions. These featured his unusual pulsing, throbbing analogue percussion layers, warm soundscapes and beguiling melodies that are in many ways a signature sound of Parallel Worlds. Boddy took this raw material and shaped, arranged and sculpted it into a series of seven inter-linked tracks that form a musical narrative that runs throughout "Exit Strategy". Adding his glissando keyboard sound that was premiered on his album Slide (DiN31 2008) Boddy brought a real emotional focus to the album which, whilst it may seem to journey through dark, subterranean territory has some glorious melodic highlights.
"Exit Strategy" proves once again that the DiN label can conjure up new combinations of sonic palettes from internationally renowned electronic musicians.
