Parallel Worlds & Dave Bessell are familiar to followers of the DiN label. Each has solo albums and multiple collaborations across the DiN catalog. The album title makes clear we are entering a dark, foreboding sound world. Bessell quotes the novel "Neuromancer" by William Gibson as a major influence. "Dystopia" is dynamic with complex, almost classical, arrangements that are constantly shifting. Bakis Sirros (aka Parallel Worlds) weaves modular rhythms that squirm and writhe underneath vast slabs of analog chords, rising and falling like cities. Tracks feature Bessell's adventurous guitar work as well as his analog, modeled sound design. Seeming to inhabit a nether world between dark electronica and progressive synth, these two musicians have once again created an album that sounds like nothing else.
