A BRIEF MUSICAL HISTORY:
In 1996, Dean De Benedictis released his debut ambient/electronic music (borderline space rock) CD on Hypnotic/Cleopatra Records, which was self titled under the alias SURFACE 10. Following that was Dean's collaberation project with George Sara (of THC) called Cathexis, releasing the CD Exempli Gratia, in 1997 (also on Hypnotic/Cleopatra), a gift to the techno trance world. Just after these initial releases, Dean appeared on various compilations, and in various genres, for labels like Hypnos, Lektronic Soundscapes, and Cleopatra. In the new millennium, 2000, Dean put out a technologically edgy/progressive/IDM style Surface 10 CD called In Vitro Tide on DiN Records, followed by his tribal ambient CD release A Lone Reply debuted under his own name, on Fateless in 2001. Dean then formed the Fateless Flows Collective and appeared on their compilations for 2004 and 2005. In 2004 the Surface 10 CD Borrowed Time 2000 was made available by Space For Music Records as a compilation of previously unreleased Surface 10 material, and in 2005 Spotted Peccary Records put out Dean's previously unreleased mix of all ambient vibes and time zones, Salvaging The Past. ////////// For an in-depth discography, click here.
