The self-titled debut of Dia.L – the duo of vocalist, viola and kalimba player Lailah Reich and ever-creative Chicago producer Radius! The name is pronounced as "dial", and they dial up a really unique sound with boundless astral atmosphere, but it still has a fairly intimate feel, rooted in abstract soul. The soulful resonance is especially strong because of the sweet, subtle and hushed quality of Lailah's vocals, which blend with and dance alongside
the beats in a beautiful way! On that front, Radius never disappoints on the production tip, always able to balance a undercurrent of insistent beats with atmospheric effect
s, and the sky is the limit when working with an intuitive vocal partner. Titles include "Wide Eyed" with guests Kenny Keys and Jana Buttanari, "Sadness", "Harvest Of Calm", "Poi Tree", "Robots", "Trade Winds", "Piece Peace" and "Next Chapter".
