Sheffields answer to Detroit Techno

Black dog have been around in various forms for nearly 18 years now and during that time they've taken the essence of early techno and made their own sound from it. This album is no exception and was high on many of the dance/electronic music industries best of lists for 2008. It begins with Transmission Start, an eerie sting led piece which soon makes way for more beat driven tracks. A personal favourite of mine is UV Sine with its old skool stab forming the back bone of a melodic techy house work out.

The general mood darkens throughout and many tracks feature uncompromising beats such as the excellent Beep. The album very much ends as it starts in melodic ambience and dials and dialers 1 almost sounds lke it was lifted off BOC's Campfire Headphase before the beautiful Ghost Vexations brings things to a close. I like listening to this album at night driving down the motorway - this is the best time to listen to music generally! Its slightly difficult to sit down and just listen to this album through as it is very subtle, however its a great mood setter and sounds completely fresh against a lot of the minimal techno about now. I can't wait for their next album.
