Dial is deep techno for flowers.
From the music to the artworks, the global aesthetics of this label is higher than most of electronic music labels. Special respect to Pantha Du Prince, Lawrence and Pawel, my favourite horses of the team, with their exceptional sense of the subtle melody making gentle love to precise rhythmics.
Dial is elegant, Dial is contemplativ, Dial is romantic.

I've always had a soft spot for Dial ever since I got caught into the dark grooves of those early releases by Carsten Jost and Sten, who are both founders of this amazing label.

The usual formula they used at this time was to basically take a set of dark atmospheric pads or strings and mix it with a bunch of simple beats and a very strong bass line, while keeping the whole thing as minimal as possible. Worked great every single time!

If you're into minimal techno with a strong emphasis on melody, I couldn't recommend you more to check these early releases (up to 2003) and why not have a look on the more recent output, because Dial has definitely managed to keep its quality pretty high.

Top quality productions over the years, you can find the best between hypnotic minimal techno, minimal dub, tech house, IDM, and ambient, for homelistening and club. Today DIAL is one of my favourite labels. So if you want to collect all releases of a label completely, you can choose DIAL. Especially my respect to Lawrence, Efdemin, Pawel and Carsten Jost for their productions over the last months. And if you still think Dial would be a label for home-listening, check the last releases with more floor-orientation.
