DiN

The DiN label, established in 1999, is an electronic music label which has over 70 releases, available in both physical and download formats. It was set up by Boddy to release ambient electronica that bridged the gap between the analogue sound of the early 70’s synth pioneers and the digital soundscapes of the more experimental modern exponents of electronic music. As well as releasing several of his own solo albums, the label have also worked with artists such as Robert Rich, Erik Wøllo, Markus Reuter, Tetsu Inoue, Node and Mark Shreeve (as ARC) as well as many collaborations. Alongside running DiN, Boddy has toured the world, performing his own brand of electronic music and playing extensively in the UK, Germany, Netherlands and America.

The DiN catalogue is available for sale direct from the DiN Bandcamp store.
