Das Ding

About Das Ding (DD) it's an Electronic project headed by dutch Danny Bosten. There is a very interesting text telling DD's background, which is: 

‘I started recording in 1981, with a lot of borrowed equipment. It was fun to do, and everyone was doing music, so me and my friend Johan started a cassette label. We made some tapes, did some gigs, but things moved on. In 2007, 433rpm, of the exhaustive music blog ‘No Longer Forgotten Music’, posted some of my old Das Ding tapes, and Veronica Vasicka- who runs the New York based ‘Minimal Wave’ label and specializes in reissues of 80s synth-wave- contacted me, now living in Rotterdam, to propose the release of a Das Ding album. Old tapes were uncovered, and Minimal Wave released a remastered version of ‘HSTA’ and other tracks, in 2010. A wave of renewed interest followed the record’s release and soon people were in touch to propose live shows. Twenty years later, and after some deliberation, Das Ding was reincarnated under its old moniker but now with a revised line-up and a working set-up that reflected inevitable technological change. Suddenly, Das Ding was a ‘Dutch electro-pioneer’ and the apparent pinnacle of ‘Minimal Wave’.

These two songs are ressurected demos, I guess. My attempt at doing television show themesongs, inspired by ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’, (We Can Rebuild Him) and ‘The Day of the Triffids’ (Triffid Farm). I am very much a film buff, as they say, and secretly imagine all my tracks to be soundtracks to some movie I haven’t seen yet.' - text from Sonic Playground

So, whaddayouthink about it? Besides this most recent work from DD, whose artwork made by Nikos Dervisis and the two-song collection released by Sonic Playground, there are several songs on DD's soundcloud, most of them exploring deeply into the Minimal Wave, Ambient and the dark side of Electronic music. Some of them could very well fit on a oldschool sci-fi OST, and some could vey well fit on the alternative club closest to you, but all of them are of top-level quality such that any fan of Xeno & Oaklander, Automelodi, Oppenheimer Analysis, etc.) will surely enjoy DD's pieces of art.

You can download those two songs on .FLAC or .mp3 format on the Sonic Playground link above, as well as free-stream it and some other nice pieces, including a great cover of Joy Divisions' Means To An End adapted to DD's cosmos on the soundcloud widgets right below. As always, I hope you enjoy! ;)
