The Black Dog - Dark Wave Vol.07

The Black Dog are universally respected, not least for their classic Bytes, Spanners and Radio Scarecrow albums, which literally created new fields of music. With new personnel added to the line up, we now see output that is stronger and darker.  They form new links in the chain of ideas and rhythm between dance music and older forms. The Black Dog‘s innovation is grounded in previous generations of artists and musicians, to the beats, the Bohemians, and further back. Yet their music appeals to a huge spectrum of people. Famously reticent of the press and other apparatus of the industry, The Black Dog on record evoke a curious bitter sweetness, at once tender and distant, while delivering incredible rhythmic inventiveness. Some call it "intelligent", and it is, but the word denies the music‘s visceral, overpowering sensuousness.The Black Dog have been ripping it up with their live and with the DJ sets for the last 4 years, from Sonar to Glastonbury and just about every club across europe - this dog bites!
