The collaborative project DSM-V is comprised of the multifaceted talents of Marc Dwyer (Buzz Kull) and Morgan Wright (Burning Rose records, Pelvis records, Acopia), who came together to weave captivating electronic music soundscapes after sharing the stage by performing as their respective acts. Their music fuses the best elements of EBM and Nu Beat with traces of melodic post-punk that are introspective and dancefloor-friendly.
“Flash of Light”, mixed by Cameron Findlay (Kontravoid) and mastered by Jonathan Schenke (P.E. – Eaters), is an amalgamation of powerful Dwyer’s darkwave vocals, with a lush EBM production from Wright. The song pulses like a crystalline sci-fi dream, juxtaposing wistful melancholia with uplifting beats that coalesce in cinematic reverie.

DSM-V began the process of writing their full-length debut album back in 2019 on the greek island of Crete, right before the pandemic hit.
In May 2020 they released the acclaimed double single “Into Nothing/ Function” on cassette/digital via Third Coming but amid the absence of live music, and the physical distance between the duo (Sydney/Mel- bourne), the drive to create had diminished.
In 2021, Wright and Dwyer reunited, bunkering down in Wright’s home studio for a week straight to finish the record which is now expected to drop in early 2023.
