Official site

John Dyson is a UK musician specialising in sweeping electronica landscapes, rhythmic and melodic synthesiser music. His music could variously be described as New Age and World music in parts.

A founding member of Wavestar, whose first appearance at the UK Electronica festival in 1985 was a sensation, John has now formed his own label Soddett Hall and is forging ahead as a solo artist...still hard ‘at play’ creating not only the music he loves to listen to but also the music that he loves to perform.

John decided that rather than try and sum up the experience himself (which he loved, by the way!), he'd share with you some feedback from an enthusiastic audience member who wrote after the event.

Hi everyone, I recently attended E-SCAPE Electronic Music Festival on the 30th May 2015 at The Cut, Halesworth, Suffolk . Although the attendance was a little low , I enjoyed every minute of the performances by all on stage . I was joined by my father on the day who loved it all . We are both big fans of electronic music and are big fans of David Wright , Robert Fox , Ron Boots , John Dyson , Paul Ward , Andy Pickford , Chris Franke , Johannes Schmoelling , Becky Williams , and Michael Shipway.

A massive thank you to everyone involved in organising the event as it was brilliant . The last time I went to a concert like this, was Derby Assembly Rooms way back in 1994 at the E.M.M.A festival . Loved that day too ! I would love to know of any other events like this to be planned for the future in the UK . Wouldn`t miss it for the world !!!! My kind of music...... It was also good to hear music I have never heard of before from Eric Van Der Heijden , Glen Main , FD Project and Dreamerproject who were equally good .  

At the end of the concert , we both got to talk to Paul, John, Michael, David, Ron and Glen. Very honoured we were too! Good to know you can get to know the performers at the very end of the performance. The Icing On The Cake as they say!!!!  

Hope to hear from you very soon with news etc. 

Keep up the brilliant work , it`s well worth it! :)
Kind regards, 
Richard Marriott

30 Jul 2014 - Moonwind CD

Sadly, the physical stocks of the Moonwind CD have now run dry and the album is now only available as a download from specialist stores.

Download available via MusicZeit

In more positive news, I hear that John has started composing new music again. Who knows where it will end?

Hopefully, more information will surface by the end of the year!

30 Aug 2013 - Postal charges

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but the Royal Mail has slowly been increasing their charges, which means that reluctantly we must also do the same for physical CDs shipped from the website Store.

Of course, we have tried to keep them as reasonable as possible. There is a tiered pricing structure making simple economic sense...the more you buy, the cheaper they become per unit!

Again, apologies that this has had to happen but I hope you'll agree that CDs purchased directly from this site are still good value...and of course, signed copies by the man himself are easy to obtain!!
