28 tracks mixed into a continuous work of music that provides a fascinating & unique way to experience the material of a truly original UK synth musician!

They say a journey begins with a single step. Ian Boddy's journey began in 1979 when he walked into the studio at Newcastle's Spectro Arts Workshop. Intrigued by the sounds emanating from the banks of VCS3 synthesisers and Revox tape recorders, he started a 30-year odyssey of musical experimentation and adventure. Never following the mainstream or courting a band-centric musical path, he has nevertheless forged a truly unique musical career.
From the release of his first ever full album on the UK cassette label Mirage in 1980, he has gone on to issue 23 solo and 24 collaborative albums, performed over 100 concerts in the UK, The Netherlands, Germany & USA, composed 11 library music albums for DeWolfe Music and programmed several sample CD's & virtual instruments.
In 1999 he founded the DiN electronica label, which has since become synonymous with adventurous and eclectic music. There have been 35 titles to date, including albums by Chris Carter, Robert Rich, Tetsu Inoue, Mark Shreeve, Markus Reuter & Erik Wøllo.
Boddy's influence also extends into sound design where numerous musicians and film-makers have used his sounds in their own music and soundtracks. He has over 300 library music tracks released via DeWolfe Music, which are used worldwide on a huge variety of TV shows, documentaries and films.
These statistics are impressive enough, however what impresses the most is Boddy's sheer determination and presence of mind to follow his own musical path and create music and sounds that offer a very personal reflection of his own personality.
Pearl is the 36th release on DiN and offers a retrospective of Boddy's 30-year journey.
Released in a limited edition of 1,000 it comes in a beautifully designed Digi-Pak format, with the music split across two discs. ‘Outer DiN’ attempts to bring together all his work outside of DiN - It includes his solo work stretching all the way back to the early cassette releases, three DeWolfe library music tracks and an excerpt of his sound design work. ‘Inner DiN’ showcases both his solo and collaborative work on the DiN ambient label.
