ARC ARC

8 albums available


ARC are Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve who have previously released Octane on Boddy's Something Else Record label. Mark Shreeve has recently been involved with his Redshift project that due to the use of his original Moog IIIC modular system has been recreating the vibe and feel of early 70's space music pioneers such as Tangerine Dream. However in ARC, whilst the Big Moog is still ever present Boddy's influence can be heard in shifting the music sideways with a more ambient feel.

See also ARC on Something Else Records for their first album Octane.

1 album available


DiN has always fostered an environment where unusual musical alliances can flourish. Such encounters seem to be of high significance both for Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, the mastermind behind successful music projects like MIND OVER MATTER & COSMIC HOFFMANN, and Bernhard Wöstheinrich, who, being 'THE REDUNDANT ROCKER' himself, is a member of the bands CENTROZOON and SUBSONIC EXPERIENCE. Indeed Wöstheinrich has not only appeared on DiN previously in these two guises but has also worked with DiN label supremo Ian Boddy on Moiré ( DiN18 ).

Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock's musical roots go back to the late sixties when he started playing the lead guitar...

DiN - History

A veteran of the European electronic music scene since the late 70s, UK based sonic explorer Ian Boddy has produced 13 CDs on his Something Else Records label. Emerging from the post TDream generation, Boddy has carved out a distinctive position as an independent composer and performer. As well as his CD output he has also released several library music CD's for deWolfe and is well known for his pioneering work with the sample CD company Zero-G.

His reputation growing as a producer and composer, Boddy decided to set up DiN in 1999 to facilitate his desire to work with musicians from several different areas of modern Electronica.

DiN - the Missing Link ?

One of Boddy's main aims was to provide a label which could provide a bridge between the analogue sound of the early 70's synth pioneers and the digital soundscapes of the more experimental modern exponents of electronic music. Thus DiN provides a platform for music that stretches across the range of contemporary Electronica. Each DiN release describes a musical landscape where nothing is forbidden and boundaries are redundant.

DiN - Limited Editions

The universe is always in motion. Nothing stands still. Neither will DiN. DiN has adopted a strictly limited edition ethos. In this way, DiN is able to appeal to the collector and the connoisseur by releasing limited edition multiples. DiN does not repress back catalogue. Catch it before you miss it.

DiN - the Story so Far

There have been 28 releases since the launch of DiN including DiN 10 - iNDEX 01 which was a sampler CD of DiN 1 - 9. This disc was featured in the June 2001 issue of the well respected music magazine The Wire. There have been a wide range of artists involved with DiN so far including Chris Carter, Robert Rich, Tetsu Inoue, Markus Reuter, ARC, Centrozoon, Dub Atomica, Surface 10, Protogonos, Subsonic Experience, dbkaos, Parallel Worlds, Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock and of course IanBoddy. With such an eclectic mix of musicians it's fair to say there's been quite a range of musical styles emerging on DiN. However under the guidance of Boddy the output on DiN has a consistency and high standard that will challenge and interest all lovers of "fine contemporary Electronica".
