Dual - Tocsin

Tocsin is the long awaited new Dual album available now.

Having built up a substantial back catalogue of outstanding releases on various labels including Drone Records, CEE Recordings, Coombe Records, Dirter, Evelyn Records, Fourth Dimension plus many more, Dual now release a new full length album as part of the evergrowing series of CD releases on the Belgian label Mystery Sea.

Tocsin has been described like a journey in sound split into six parts that builds, floats, drifts and then declines when least expected, but brings together all the elements of beauty and darkness within a single feeling but without overstating. As ever Dual's subtle textured movement rises and develops within each part with measured transitions, imagine watching back a slow motion replay in slow motion, you might just notice the ever so slight changes...

Many years ago Staalplaat remarked how Dual instill ambience that is raw and unpolished, resembling more an empty factory building than a clean room in your house... further still if Tocsin was a dream, you'd probably feel sad & happy, immersed & suspended, cold & hot in the hours afterwards... needless to say Tocsin has depth that allows the subtle patterns of processed shimmering beauty to rise in only a way that Dual manage from just six coiled steel strings and a plank of wood.

Dual - Klanik / 4tH

Klanik / 4tH is now available again after a long period of unavailabilty. Originally released back in 2000 this classic 7" single by Dual has now been repressed in a special edition of white vinyl with special hand stamped / embossed sleeves and white text on white inlay on Drone Records. This record has been reissued due to continued interest.

Some of the things previously said about this release...

"Klanik maintains a familiar cycling guitar flow and repetition as well as introducing percussive guitars that play like 'drums' and bring another dimension to the already heavily treated sound. This moves around within a frame of still playing but also accompanying the machines with rigorous strength and depth that hints at more to come...4tH sends careering strands of glassish shards out of the frame forced into a network of missed backwards stutterring amongst rumbling and squealing rising feedback driven drones"
...Infel #9 magazine March 2000

"The texture and volume of Klanik remove this from simple derivative drones, likewise when infused with sparse melodious sounds creating an engaging slow morphing song. '4tH' embodies a sparser experimental guise with solid crumbling and fractured textures, deep feedback, sporadic clatter etc., all underpinned by elements of drawn out guitar drones. The level of volume and intensity of feedback again ensures that the track transcends any simplistic drone categorisation" ...Spectrum magazine July 2000

The Utopia Project

Dual perform the soundtrack to the radio drama The Utopia Project on The 2012 Show on Resonance FM in conjunction with BBC Raw Talent.

The Utopia Project by Rob Kinsman
"Right now, people are selling virtual treasure in online computer games for real-world money. This year, the industry is worth an estimated $900 million, all for goods that don’t exist. In the year 2012 the games are the biggest industry in the world. People in sweat-shops are forced to play the games in order to scrape together a pitiful living. And one man is about to find that it’s not easy to stay optimistic in a virtual world where danger and corruption lurk around every corner. But the games are a great place to meet people and fall in love, though even that may prove to be more trouble than in real life…"
