Ambient duo the Dylan Group
teamed Dylan Cristy
(a noted jungle DJ as well as co-founder of the New York-based Bubble Core label) and Adam Pierce
(also known for his work as the anagrammatic Mice Parade
). Set apart from their contemporaries by their use of live instruments -- primarily vibraphone and drums -- the Dylan Group
appeared on a handful of compilations, as well as a split release with H.I.M.
, before issuing their full-length debut It's All About (rimshots and faulty wiring)
in 1998. Re-Interpreted
, a collection of remixes by the likes of Bundy K. Brown
and Nobukazu Takemura
, followed later that year, and in 1999 the Dylan Group
(now a four-piece additionally featuring Scott McGovern and Tyler Pistilli) resurfaced with More Adventures in Lying Down
. Ur-Klang Search
appeared a year later.
