Ian Boddy biography
Ian Boddy is a keyboardist, electronic wizard and a key figure of the British space music movement. He has a huge prolific career which covers a large range of electronic music styles. In the early 1980s Ian Boddy began experimenting at an Arts Council funded studio in Newcastle. He is also known for his later collaborative works and performances with the multifacetered ambient pionnier Robert Rich. In 1999 he founded the DiN Records label. His early works feature picturesque-evocative dreamscapes with dense burgeonning synth waves, eerie drones and automatic percussive drives. His musical catalogue provides a few utterly shimmering electronic soundscapes which mentally guide the listener into subconscious / astral odysseys.

Ian Boddy Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
4 stars Quiet unappreciated, even though he is a late-pioneer (1980) of the sub-genre, maybe because he is not associated with big "names", besides Robert Rich ("React" 2008, "Lithosphere" 2005) and Markus Reuter ("Dervish" 2009), who also are kind of Progressive electronic, "obscure" artists.

So, directly to where it matters, "Slide" is Electronic/Psychedelic/Space Rock, without vocalist, plus splashes of "electric/slide guitar", some artificial drums here and there and simple good electronics.

His songwriting approach is enhanced by "contrasts" between robotic structures as a background to more "animal/human" elements. He never abuses the construction of "sequencer riffs", which by the way of personal experience, have almost by rule "shelf life". His songwriting also never sticks to the same kind of patterns, not even in the same song, because of the same, these changes refresh the air of the musical environment, constantly with a "new" and different "structures" or melody. Therefore, "pulse riffs" have a constant but brief appearance everytime the show up, which makes them surprising, not imposing, due to the fact that they are just parts of the whole, not the full structure.

The part I like the most of these "Slide" songs, is that each has inside "miniature" songs, and each song a different "personality". This makes the full experience totally dynamic, even though there is "Ambiental", "Psychedelic" , "Spacy", "Rock/Trance" and "Electronic" transitions, they move so fast, that it simply makes each "mini" structure unique, both as individual songs and as a part of a song of a whole album of songs. The song that is not as good as the rest (IMO), is certainly "Yesterday's Memories" too "eightish" and boring for my likes. The rest is worth getting. ****4 PA stars.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
