POOLcast 010 - Dinelka

For this edition we have a remarkable story to tell. Almost 8000 km behind several seas, vast deserts and frozen mountain ranges a young man discovered electronic music, found a label called micromod music, came in contact with an initiative of Border Movement, Ableton, the Goethe Institut and got the chance to spend the summer in Berlin. This young man is from Colombo, Sri Lanka and is named Dinelka.

Unexplainable, how an ocean of possibilities leads to a new brother in spirit. So it seems ironic that an ‘ocean’, which he had to overcome and now tears us apart, is the best metaphor to describe his musical work. Like the sea you will explore more than the surface reveals. Under shimmering shades and noisy billows unfolds vivid life. You find familiar and exoctic sounds, sometimes glitchy distorted and sometimes with soothing harmonies. And if you go for ground dive where deep grooves of unique pattern emerge, you will find the full weirdness and beauty of his extraneous sound worlds.

Dinelka’s POOLcast 010 is the perfect example for this comparison. After your first step into it, bubbly sounds flowing around you, everyday noise merge with piling waves, every minute drag you further outside. And before you realize what is happening, you has entered an unusual and extraordinary world where you can't predict what you discover next.

Hold your breath, it’s a long and exciting trip.
