DiN 7
Radio Sputnik by ARC

Limited to 1,000 copies. Sold out.

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.

Radio Sputnik is a recording of their 1998 concert at the 5th Alfa-Centauri festival in Huizen, the Netherlands. It includes live versions of 4 tracks from Octane ( which is now out of print ) as well as 4 new tracks including the sequencer track to end all sequencer tracks - Arc-Angel.

Track listing:

1) Steam (10.48)
2) Transmit 1 (2.35)
3) Radio Sputnik (7.04)
4) Who walks behind you (5.03)
5) Octane (13.46)
6) Transmit 2 (4.01)
7) Arc-Angel (12.52)
8) Relay (10.33)

Review in the April issue of The Wire in the Outer Limits section:

Suitably blindfolded, you'd swear this release from the English DiN label was the bastard offspring of Klaus Schulze. Arc is the duo of DiN boss Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve, two spacemen obsessed by the big choral throb of early 70's Tangerine Dream, and their combination of vintage synths and Moogs, all mainlined with swathes of abstract digital noise, is an extremely juicy one. When Radio Sputnik really starts to move it feels as well oiled as Kraftwerk's Trans Europe Express.
