In Dust: 2000 – 2003 is a compilation album existing of 11 tracks Dutch musician Paul Tetteroo recorded under project name Reptile71 over a period of three years. Though Reptile71 was clearly influenced by early 80’s new wave, minimal synth and post-punk bands such as Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, (early) OMD, Talk Talk, (early) Simple Minds and The Wake (UK), and the more spiritual music like Dead Can Dance, he still managed to create a unique sound.
From the eastern sounding All Wrong till the static Saved, in which samples are showing the contrast between war and peace, the album makes you dream away in a melancholic hypnotizing atmosphere, telling stories of struggles in relationships and life itself, giving us a glimpse in Paul’s view of life and sharing feelings of pain, despair and hope with the listener.
The album is available on CD since 01/07/2009 at Sounds for Sure (NL) and will be available on 02/23/2009 worldwide in all popular download stores.
