DNTEL - Life is Full of Possibilities
DNTEL is a one man project based around genius Jimmy Tamborello.
Life Is Full of Possibilities (2001) is a beautiful bubbly collage of mainly ambient electronic tracks. It would make a perfect score music for a dream.

From musicians contributing on this album it is definitely worth mentioning Chris Gunst (Beachwood Sparks, ex-Strictly Ballroom), Rachel Haden (That Dog) and Benjamin Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), among the others.

Tamborello did a fantastic sample editing job. The way the songs are structured and put together is simply genius. Quirky beats, loads of clicking and ticking but surprisingly everything fits perfectly.

DNTEL’s music contains such pristine melodies and is so effective in its stimulation of one’s emotions that you fall in love with this album right away.
Dominating synths, powerful bass lines, strings, acoustic guitar and a whole array of samples would be just a very short description of DNTEL’s music.

I personally find very interesting and motivating how much of a power and beauty is in a simple arrangement of sounds. It makes you want to sit down with your laptop and to experiment composing your own dreams.

The whole album is well balanced but I have to point out track 7 “Why I’m So Unhappy” vocals by Rachel Haden (That Dog), which is an absolute jewel! It slowly goes on for about 7 minutes dramatically developing and fading out. The female vocals sound extremely fragile and intimate as if whispering to you ear. And you just don’t want it to stop.

“Life Is Full of Possibilities” is definitely a masterpiece!
