REVIEW REBLOG – Dalot & M.Cadoo – Phantom Strains

This is how I hoped it would work for artists.
Reblog a couple of articles from Headphone Commute​ about the artist Dalot.
I then go an discover more for myself and find this release. After listening to it I made it my discovery for the day.
It is then listened to by Yeah I Know I Sucks, who write a great review of the release, which I am reblogging here and linking to Twitter and Facebook.

Thanks to a post on the wonderful blog named Feminatronic that is setup to celebrate the eclectic creativity of women in electronic music /an equal share of music information gets passed along. Today I followed their recommendation up and became hopelessly intrigued by a psychedelic work done by Dalot, aka sound artist Maria Papadomanolaki.

The music captured within the production of Dalot is one that comes across as if it’s alive and breathing electronic waves. Slowly the sound of this happening begins to open up, be more present as it becomes more clear and to the foreground. When it reaches the right volume it folds open like a flower of nature, showcasing a rustic field of electric calmness that has an effect on me as a listener that is of a visually pleasing and…

REVIEW REBLOG – Dalot – Minutestatic (n5MD)

Here is the review of Minutestatic by Dalot..Thanks again to Headphone Commute for the review.

I need to do a label special soon!” Then I carefully place the disc along with other n5MD releases… and there it stays… for months… I suppose that is how I missed out on the latest from Light Out Asia, Crisopa, Asonat, Aerosol, Ex Confusion, DreisskEleventhfloorrecords, Mike Harris, and of course, Dalot.

Hi Maria, what have you been up to lately?
I am still settling down to my new place/neighborhood since my move from NY to London during the summer.

In 2009, I contacted n5MD to ask them if they would be interested in selling some copies of my EP via their mailorder website. They coincidentally liked it and they signed me.

What does your name Dalot mean and where does it come from?
Dalot is the french word for culvert. Back in the golden days of Myspace, I decided to open an account and I needed a username. Next to me there was a French Dictionary. I opened one of its pages by chance and Dalot was the first word I saw. I liked the look and sound of it and I kept it. Recently, I discovered that there are two areas that…
