Now, Dylan is taking us on another brilliant adventure, taking an exploratory view of the universe through twelve original songs that are as visceral as they are cathartic. With every release Dylan is able to create something new and exciting for us to enjoy, and ‘I Am Alive’, his sixteenth record is no different. Built to contribute something fresh and innovative to the electronic genre, it’s an album that can best be described as transcendent, proving just how good Dylan really is.
Incredibly melodic in a way that only Dylan can produce, ‘I Am Alive’ is an album filled to the absolute brim with dizzying electronics and EDM-infused anthemics, shining with rhythm, groove, and an undeniable sense of euphoria. As with his previous releases, there’s a sense of joyful familiarity that inhabit each of the tracks, with every track working together to emphasise Dylan’s message of love and exploration."
Dylan Tauber has been a master of his craft for the better part of two-and-a-half decades. Renowned as an award winning electronic musician, cyber artist, photographer, and author, Dylan graduated from Columbia University in 1996, and has been based, in NYC, Jerusalem, Miami, a remote island in the southwestern Pacific, and currently a kibbutz in northern Israel where he is Artist-in-Residence. Through the years, Dylan has both refined and expanded his modes of production. His latest and 15th album, "The Lagoon", is a true masterpiece. Throughout twelve dynamic, yet hyper-reflexive and cleanly mastered tracks, Dylan Tauber takes listeners on a journey into sound dimensions that are awash with throbbing percussion, pulsating basslines, sweeping synths and infectious melodies, dripping with infectiously mellifluous female vocals.

It feels odd to say that "He Loves Carmen" might be Dylan Tauber’s best work to-date, mostly because one could say that about each of his 14 albums and it would always be true. Tauber’s a master of sound science and creates a new world of sound for each album he releases. For the EDM, set, however, this one will hit different. Expertly produced and full of beautiful composition to keep the tech nerds happy but effortlessly emotive and covering a wide range of eras at the same time, He Loves Carmen also happens to fit in perfectly with what’s hot right now in electronica. It’s sort of a Hudson Mohawke effect, driven once again by Derkach’s vocals: the emotion, the tech, the skill and the cool all just come together here, and it’s even more poignant that it’s inspired by love. read more

Dylan Tauber is a very prolific musician. I just reviewed his album "Sounds from Space 2," what seems like merely weeks ago, although it was actually last year...and I loved it. This new album is a bit more romantic, as you can tell from the title, but it's just as enigmatic and emotional.
The idea that electronica can be soulful, human, or moving might seem antithetical to some, but Dylan Tauber's music is profoundly organic. Each sound made comes from somewhere deep within his mind, he creates waves of rhythm and delicate spiraling emotive soundscapes. It's easy to become transported by him, even as you listen to what is clearly manufactured. But isn't everything we hear just our minds' interpretation of what is real...I loved this album.

From the powerful and emotion-evoking “Ambience of India” to the upbeat and motivating “Call Me The Sun”, Dylan Tauber delivers melodic bliss combined with ear-gracing instrumentation. This talented artist maintains a fully charged arsenal of high octane music that supports the fact that he is set to make a strong impact on the music industry, as well as the charts. This release is a testament to Tauber’s versatility as a producer and his innate talent. Dylan’s sound is inspired by his travels around the world, especially at a remote Pacific island’s turquoise lagoon. As Tauber continues to release music, he is an artist to keep an eye and ear out for.
"Artist and visionary Dylan Tauber has been making music for well over two decades, his most recent release being the aptly named ‘Sounds From Space’.
His 12th album to date, the album features 15 new tracks, some featuring the vocal talent of Enlia and Francessca Belisario. The opening track, ’11:18:16’, sets an eerie yet elegant vibe, with an almost oceanic quality. Incredibly cinematic by nature, it perfectly sets the stage for what is to come from the rest of the album.
‘Carmen Song’ is one of the tracks that stands out most from the album, which was written for Dylan’s girlfriend, Carmen. Dylan says that the entire album was inspired by her, but this track especially exudes a certain passion that is reminiscent of the feelings surrounding any budding romance."
“A forward-thinking electronica visionary, Dylan Tauber's music is ambient and trance inducing.
He started his career as an ambitious independent artist 20 years ago, and since then has made some waves around the world. More well known as a cyber star, Dylan also published two books as he completed his now, 10th album. A well balanced, multi talented artist, we congratulate Tauber for his years of dedication to his art, as he begins to gain recognition around the world.”
“Dylan Tauber is an Israeli producer, writer and DJ with over 20 years in the electronic music business. Best known for ambient and trance electronica, Tauber is known for his penchant for aquatic-inspired sounds. To mark the 20 year anniversary of his first album, Double Mirrors Soundtrack, Tauber released his 11th and 12th album, respectively. One album was a retrospective-sized compilation of greatest hits, and the other he named Dolphin Trance 2. This album, released last September, contains remixes and variations of his most popular songs, as well as six new ambient tracks.”
“For 20 years, the creative mind of Dylan Tauber has been creating a unique online interaction by curating music, design, and all things alike. The award-winning musician has been trotting around the globe absorbing all he can to produce a legacy of art he can be proud of. Formerly based in large metropolitan areas such as New York and Miami, Tauber can now be found in Northern Israel, where he is spending most of his time focusing on his self-named, trance project.”

“Having a record like this in your lineup is a necessity. It’s nice to get away from the world and relaxing material like this really helps to escape and find piece of mind. Composed and produced by Dylan Tauber, “Sounds from Space” seems like prime score material. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear some of these in a video game or film down the line. Top tracks for me have to be “Clouds (feat. Enila)” and I’m digging the more rhythmic cuts as well like “12-16-16” and “Space groove.””
