DJ Richard – Dies Iræ Xerox [DIALLP040]

Following 2017’s ‘Path of Ruin’, DJ Richard returns to Dial with his much-anticipated sophomore LP, ‘Dies Irae Xerox’. Undoubtedly one of the most distinctive and fully-formed electronic producers in recent memory, DJ Richard imprinted the sound of a bubbling US underground with his label, White Material, founded in 2012 alongside Young Male. Now firmly settled once more in his hometown of Providence, ‘Dies Iræ Xerox’ is a personal and uncompromising journey that finds the Rhode Island native in reflective form, journeying without compromise into both his creative influences and personal psyche.

DJ Richard – Grind [DIAL033LP]

Debut Album by Dj Richard, Label Owner of White Material. With the launch of his White Material label in New York 2012, Dj Richard started releasing a line of the most stunning works by Galcher Lustwerk, Young Male, Morgan Louis and himself. Alongside a collaboration with Carsten Jost for the Lawrence ”Films And Windows Remixes” the Dial Records crew deeply fell in love with the works of Dj Richard and vice versa the request to release his debut album here caused enthusiastic encounter. After his contribution for Dial’s 15 Years compilation and almost two years of production, it is here: Dj Richard – Grind ! A tribute to what contemporary club music and enthusiastic sound experiments should be about: exaltation and addiction. This is what Dj Richard’s club sets feel like- an incredible sound seduction, another dimension- Grind might be the essence of it all.

Efdemin – Decay [DIALLP030]

Dial regular Efdemin returns with a third album of a respected career, with the autumnal theme of Decay inspired by the German producer’s three-month artist residency in Kyoto, Japan. Sollmann immersed himself in the local culture while in Kyoto, attending ceremonies with monks at temples and visiting local instrument makers. This results in a ten track set that canvasses the sort of poignant, introverted house music that’s characterized much of Phillip Sollmann’s work as Efdemin to date. There are however a few stylistic surprises along the way – the stripped back, jacking “Transducer” or the fusion of jazzy licks and noisy bursts of percussion that makes up the title track – but overall you’d be hard pushed to think of a better label to house Decay than Dial.

Efdemin – Chicago [DIALCD021]

EFDEMIN - Chicago image

After the huge success of his selftitled debut in 2007 CHICAGO is the second album of the Berlin-based Producer and DJ who releases his music under his moniker EFDEMIN with DIAL Records. CHICAGO is definitely the top match of Dial’s 10 Years Anniversary releases. Efdemins new works can be regarded as the turning point of a trend based house and techno scene into a new contemporary anti trend movement.
