A CD release would be really nice, to go with II & III.
Seems sort of odd not to have the first in the series on CD?

This album, goes way beyond, Electronic, Ambient.
Exploring a mix of organic sounds, performances with some modular synth moments that never
become over noodling or self indulgent, resulting in some truly haunting "Ambient Blues" on tracks like... See full review

The description is a little misleading, Ambient /Drone? Its definitely a departure from some of Roman's later work as Alter Ego but was expecting something more restrained in the truer "Ambient" or "Drone" sense. There is maybe an undercurrent of... See full review

A truly wonderful record, while I'm no jazz expert or purist, I probably only own about 150 jazz records but what I can say is this record moved me deeply. The mix of the orchestrations and the free jazz playing transported me into another world, like... See full review

Their Transphormer album was clearly a departure for the earlier more thoughtful and often
soulful yet experimental earlier sound. Transphormer was a full on rocking Electro & Techno stomper with a slightly different or more modern approach to what... See full review

Wonderful release from the late 70's, an incredible mix of haunting ethereal vocals from Irene
and Vangelis's epic electronic sounds.

This is a beautifully balanced body of Ambient work.
While a lot of current ambient producers tend to go with a particular aesthetic, theme's or feelings
throughout the duration of an album, for me an album of continued melancholy or very formulaic... See full review

This collection of previously released material is a wonderful mix of
warm, melodic and some haunting tones created on a mixture of Analogue modular
synths and other electronic devices. utilizing field recordings more so on the second disc.

posted a review of Yagya - Old Dreams And Memories. 6 months ago
Ok, a lot of divided opinions on the works of Yagya, I guess he’s associated with his blend of Ambient Dub Techno so anything that perhaps deviates from this often regimental genre may upset some listeners.

My personal faves are “Will I Dream in The... See full review

People seem to be more concerned about sound quality of the pressings on here lately rather than actually reviewing the music?
Yes that is important but does the music touch your soul in some way? Have DCD have anything new to say?
On first listen... See full review

The music in the film is great at times but this original vinyl release basically lifts the audio from the movie so you get the noise of the cars and other elements along with the music 😞 I should have just played the blu Ray through my amp.... See full review

I want to complete my Basinski collection but the poor
pressing reports are putting me off buying the vinyl.

A CD release would be nice or a repress if the quality of side A is so bad?

Loads of small labels run re-issues of great music, Like Fax, for example, all of the first pressings were limited to 300 or 1000 etc, then repressed on the AW run by Pete
with different art etc, Txt take the same approach, If there's a demand for... See full review

Nice words on the label :) Regarding the bandcamp page, Lee the label boss
prefers to focus on just the physical side and gives the artist freedom regarding
the digital side. As an artist on the label this creates some instant revenue from
bandcamp,... See full review

One of Marks most disappointing scores which falls into the cliched
Hollywood overly loud percussiveness of recent times.

Lacking in any identifiable themes or deeply atmospheric moods like Mark has delivered
in the past. Maybe it works with the... See full review
