Jim Payne This entire album is amazing. I listen to at least one or two tracks off of it daily. The whole album flows quite well, however, when one is able to listen to it in its entirety. The time devoted to this album by its creator is obvious upon the first listen. His devotion will be your listening enjoyment. Very highly recommended! Favorite track: Daydream in Grayscale.

Ambient I feel a sense of space and it's really incredibly wonderful. Endless love <3 Favorite track: Patterns.

Fantastic release by Dario and worth your time and money for anyone passionate about
this genre.

Every track and sequence painstakingly crafted to touch your emotion and psyche and one of the few artists in this genre that stimulates such a euphoric feeling to the listener the deeper you escape into this album.

I cannot recommend this release enough! Favorite track: Takeoff.

I'm very happy to release Matter, my first album as Need a Name in 3 years.

With 9 tracks, Matter is one of the most challenging projects I ever worked on: much of the time I spent working on the album, I've been listening and relistening to every track, shaping and tweaking every little detail and sound until I could feel the right vibe, the one which always represented Need a Name for me as the beginning of my musical journey, but mixed up with many technical aspects I managed to learn during the past years, also thanks to my work on Chasing Dreams, which allowed me to improve my artistic self-expression.

Matter's melodies are pretty minimalistic, for the most part reminiscent of "Sizzling Plucks", the album that really defined Need a Name and its spacey and dreamy vibes, but with a maniacal cure for all the minimal details.

Dario Lupo Berlin, Germany

Hello, I'm Dario.

I write electronic and ambient music.

My musical style has an electronic backbone with acoustic and cinematic influences. It's predominantly easy-listening — at times groovy, experimental, or completely meditative.

Over the past decade, I published music as Need a Name, Chasing Dreams and Katahimikan.

In 2019, I started releasing music with my real name.
