My old Terminus CD sounded like it was recorded on a Philips Tape Recorder in my garden shed - this is far better

An absolute crime against music that this was hidden away from listeners for almost 30 years.. Favorite track: Parallax.

squeemu I wasn't sure what to expect going in, since this is made up of tracks from the cutting room floor. It turns out, the album is outstanding and far exceeded my expectations. It's a shock it took so many decades for these tracks to be released! Parallax in particular is unbelievably good. Favorite track: Parallax.

When synth supergroup Node first surfaced with their eponymous album in 1995 they, more than anyone else, nailed “that sound and vibe”, which had become the obsession of so many others. They seemed to encapsulate the very essence of the early German electronic music pioneers such as Tangerine Dream but with production values to die for courtesy of Node founder members Ed Buller & Flood, who were of course internationally renowned producers in their own right. But it was another 19 years before their follow up album appeared on DiN as “Node 2”, to be closely followed (by Node standards), with their live concert album performed at the Royal College of Music, London.

Up to that point that was the total canon of their work except for the EP “Terminus” recorded at their infamous Paddington Station gig. Surely they must have more material hidden away in their vaults and indeed this is exactly what the album “Singularity” is, the legendary “lost” Node album. Recorded at the same time as their original sessions in 1994 this has DiN stalwart Dave Bessell join Buller & Flood alongside original member Gary Stout who was later replaced by Mel Wesson for the two DiN releases. Presented here for the first time, mastered to modern standards but otherwise untouched and in its original form and recorded to two track with no overdubs. As a bonus the track “Terminus”, mentioned above, is included in the release.

The music is a snapshot in time 29 years ago when Node were first powering up their huge banks of vintage modulars and sequencers to create a tapestry of electronic sound. At times raw and almost out of control and at others delicate and ethereal this quartet of fabled musicians can create atmospheres and soundscapes like no other. The crackling energy of the sounds they coax out of these steam driven behemoths positively pulsates with life and organic energy and will be a real treat for aficionados of the Berlin school style of electronic music.

Another great release from the DiN imprint released in a beautiful Digipak CD edition with a special 8 track booklet with photos taken at the time of the original recording sessions.

The legendary lost Node album. Recorded in 1995 in the same sessions as the first album but largely unheard until now. Over the intervening years one or two things intended for the album escaped into the world but the majority of the material on this recording is previously unreleased. Presented here for the first time mastered to modern standards but otherwise in its original form - recorded straight to two track with no overdubs. These recordings include original member Gary Stout who was later replaced on more recent Node recordings by Mel Wesson.

Node wish to thank all those who were involved in the Node project over the years, too many to list but you know who you are!

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
