A beautiful atmospheric dance music. It just flows and flows, you can keep the CD on repeat the whole day and night.

Smooth as silk. Beautiful soundscapes and catchy beats. Not many albums of this genre manage to get me lost for 79 minutes as this one, as I find house music generally monotone. Half way through I was astonished how the album gets better and better and already prepared for the good to end. It didn't happen. There's not single dull moment in this album, just pure magic from start to end. Equally good for listening and dancing, balanced mixture of ambiance and insane catchiness (Chrysalis for example). This got me in same mood as listening to Northern Exposure, and that's a merit.

5+/5

This album is a masterpiece of breaks with passion to all kinds of sounds. It can be partly a progressive session - track "Robot", great chillout, downtempo like "All About You", trance like most of the tracks. Dousk has made his own genre of music which is generaly unclassified, but it can be concerned as a great mixture of breaks and electronic music. If you like a progressive sounds with great vocals and fantastic melodies this is a joint you are looking for.
I'll recommend it to all you just to see how beautifull this genre of music can be. Peace

I’m gonna be honest with you. I’ve basically heard Dousk’s diy back to back since it magically reappeared in webshops March 2008 after being out of stock for ages. And I like what I hear. I like what I hear a lot!

Stylewise diy leans towards Sasha’s Airdrawndagger which is a big, up-beat chill out album in my book. diy may fit the house label but the entire piece would fit perfect at the chill out stage. It will most likely send you dancing, yes, but not main stage aggressive. Grrrooving and easy going diy is a chillin’ tripper setting you up for early afternoon dancing.

And never more so than from Florence and on. Rest assured the first four tracks are by no means fillers but I like my chill-out with a snare dram and things pick up here. Beautifully crafted they win you over to the dark side of chill-out and I can ask for no more at the chill-out scene. A-freaking-mazing!

Favourites? Alright, Espero Sun, Busmekanik and Bubbles trance me pretty damn sweet. The first two for a dance and the dark Bubbles for a ride. Bubbles crosses well into house and succeeding Page Up remains there. Perhaps not reaching the heights of others here they sure are a nice ride.

Dongle ends my ride with a hint almost to X-Dream craziness (!). If one might detect a glimse of cheese here and there, say, in a track like Esperon Sun with its’ grand final theme, through and out this album is so quality infested a journey you have to put aside those inhibitions. The persistence, happy feel and orchestral approach. Fuck me over. I’m in!

Closing track Falling People wouldn’t play on my laptop without a shitload of skipping so can’t be wise about it. It wouldn’t do much difference though. diy is one stomper of an album and an essential in any well-equipped chill-out dj’s stash bag. Happy hunting.

While I find a majority of progressive house releases deadly boring, some pearls show up now and then anyway. This album is one of those that surprised me in a positive way. Pretty easy digestible melodic music from beginning to end, but still the album keeps a nice level without falling over on the too cheesy side. With the light vibe we get in these tracks, it should be a perfect album for chilling out in the sun. Especially track 7 Chrysalis should be a summer winner. I like the variation here, with several chilled tracks in between the progressive house tunes, which also fits well for homelistening as well as on a club.

There is no doubt Dousk is a creative artist, but there are several elements in these tracks that I recognise from tracks I have heard before. But, this has become the trend in the house scene, especially picking up elements from electro tracks from the late 80's etc. There is something about track 6 Espero Sun, that sounds like he has "stolen" several sounds and melodies from a classic downtempo trance track done by French Blue Planet Corporation. I'm not hundred percent sure, but it sounds almost too equal to be an coincident... Anyway, a nice album I will for sure listen to several times this summer...

D.I.Y. will change the life of Dousk. What a great album. Starting with more emotional songs from "All About You" to "Sidewalk Lovin'". The album takes a great step with "Page Up", a darker, deeper song who gives the start to the end of the album.

79 Minutes of pure progressive, breakbeat & downtempo sounds.
