2015 was a comparatively busy year for Dial, one that saw the arrival of newcomers such as Dj Richard to the scene, and even more material from label boss Carsten Yost himself. The imprint is back in 2016 with a full album from James K, the Physical Therapy and SETH associate with a taste for drones and singing. PET is a large and wide-reading album, where K pretty much visits all the possible corners and angles of ambient music, all the while retaining a sweet and sensual vocal makeover. The most impressive thing, however, is not the selection of tones or how 'dark' the sounds are, but rather how well James K's voice wraps around these hollow sounds to make an additional layer that sounds as if it was woven out of the same cloth. A truly stupendous piece of moody electronica. There's even some classic Dial house for you in there.
