In the beginning of 2014, two new boutique labels saw the light: the Belgian Dauw and Eilean Records which is based in France. After a few initial releases, respectively label owners Pieter Dudal and Mathias van Eecloo got in touch and quite soon decided to work on a collaborative project. What started with some rough ideas ended up in a wonderful project in which artists from both labels were linked to each other in order to make a collaborative track. The result was called ‘Dialog Tapes’. In its essence, Dialog Tapes is an ambitious attempt to connect a musical field through its own creative forces. Its about connectivity and making new unexpected musical ties between individual actors.

Four years later, both labels now express a distinctive sound and found their place within the field of minimal ambient and electro-acoustic music. Hence, Dudal and Eecloo found that the time was ripe to initiate the follow up of the first Dialog Tapes output. After a long process of carefully selecting the artists and curating the collaborations, a wonderful group of musicians started to explore musical overlap, looked for new approaches to make music and ultimately went in a dialog with another artist.
