Released 7th October 2016
Dyad carry the flame for the dancefloor-centric sound of warehouses and big rooms worldwide. In their first outing for DBA they offer two options for the discerning techno selector, one uplifting and rip-roaring, the other dark and brooding. Dyad is a collaborative music project and label by Ben Gibson and Fundamental Interaction, launched in 2014. Their first trilogy of EPs showcased a muscular and melodic sound, with tracks like From Another Place, Enclosed and Zou receiving strong support from a host of highly regarded DJs.

Karen Gwyer joins DBA for an exercise in futurist dancefloor electronics after a recent outing on Alien Jams alongside Beatrice Dillon and last year's barnstorming Nous release. The US-born Londoner brings the sound of her stomping, analogue live performances closer to the psychedelic, thickly melodic tone of her studio compositions across three tracks, with Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase an obvious choice for DJs. Following early feet-finding, yet highly acclaimed releases on Patten's Kaleidoscope label and No Pain In Pop, Gwyer has gone on to solidify her place in the quasi-underground techno scene with more acclaimed recordings on labels such as Nous Disques, Alien Jams and Opal Tapes, for which she toured twice. She has also produced remixes for the likes of Nous, Warp, Software and Public Information, and created a number of commissioned pieces for Open Music Archive.
