The Black Dog
Black Daisy Wheel

Beloved electro-grumps The Black Dog are back with a pair of distinct albums on the theme of dismal, hysterical post-truth media society. Black Daisy Wheel tackles its dystopian theme in a subdued, ambient style, with uneasy textures and characteristically gloomy synths drifting about. Occasional beats find their way in...view item »

The Black Dog
Post-Truth

Post-Truth is the counterpart album to The Black Dog’s forlorn new Black Daisy Wheel. Unlike its ambient companion, this one is all percussive teeth, at lingering dancefloor tempos. On the more minimal cuts such as ‘FWB’ and ‘Anticipation Occupation’, the tone is especially oppress...view item »

Slam vs The Black Dog
Slam vs The Black Dog

This 12" has these guys remixing each other. First off old Glasgow heads Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle re-work thee Dog's CCTV Nation track into a slick and polished deep tech-houser, straight up mid tempo 4/4 with mid breakdown. Nothing particularly exciting, rather a functional club tool. Some pretty Detroit-ish sounds twinkling away in...view item »

The Black Dog
The Return Ov Bleep

The Black Dog are back with this 12” of chilly, futuristic techno with that familiar insistent bass pulse alongside some gliding synth drones and electro bleeps. It’s got a Germanic minimal heart but there’s still plenty of clicky rhythmic details and intuitive melodies that keep things f...view item »

The Black Dog
Neither / Neither

Neither / Neither is the brand new album from The Black Dog, legends of UK techno. There is a strong political, anti-establishment bent to this record, as highlighted by some of the track titles (‘The Frequency Ov Thee Truthers’ for example). The sound is dark, low and reverby, but also pounding when necessa...view item »

Darkhaus Vol.02

Following ‘Darkhaus Vol.1’ on Unterton with that belter of a remix from L.B Dub Corp is nummer zwei, this time on the South Yorkshire canine’s very own Dust Science imprint. The price tag on this is a bit hefty for a standard UK 12” in black disco bag. I can only assume it ...view item »

Darkhaus Vol. 01 EP

Sheffield techno warriors The Black Dog make an appearance on Ostgut Ton's sub-label Unterton with what presumably is the first instalment in a series of 12"s. Kicking off with 'Council Flat Emptiness (Stripped)' which has them in ...view item »

The Black Dog
Liber Dogma

This is delightful stuff! This Black Dog has squatted tensely and abruptly, and with a shudder has dropped a big hot steaming pile of minimal techno. Guess the obvious comparisons are the early '90s Berlin/Tresor type stuff but with a slight glitchiness to the atmospherics that's not a mi...view item »

The Black Dog
The Vexing Remixes

Remixes! Let's listen to some! Claro Intellecto kicks it off with an expertly crafted techno groover built for maximum dancefloor slayage. Deep and ever so slightly dubby, it has me thinking of Maurizio and the like. The ever-reliable Redshape takes the baton and runs with it for a typically moody leg, feeding elements in and out with precision tim...view item »

The Black Dog
We Are Sheffield

We Are Sheffield is the latest 12" from Ken Downey's Black Dog, based largely around 'Tunnels Ov Set' from Further Vexations.. He's into Egypt and that isn't he. Cookes' remix is a beauty, with slow motion synapse tickling synth sizzles shifting from speaker to speaker while a crisp technoid beat pounds forth. Bass Soldier puts more focus on the sl...view item »

Set To Receive

The Black Dog are back on Soma following up the 'Flood' EP with the 'Set To Receive' 12". A 3 track EP which kicks off beautifully with a creepy electro beat and wobbly Skream-esqe bassline. The overall mood is on the darker side with some really sweet synths. Not bad at all. 'EVP Echoes' heads into futuristic neo electro territory and wouldn'...view item »

The Black Dog
Further Vexations

For this techno freak any Black Dog release is welcomed with open ears. I must admit that at first I wasn't entirely convinced with their recent direction although I did really love the Bite Thee Back 12" on Dust Science. Anyway having got over my hangovers of being an oldskool fan I'm digging their recent stuff. They're doing a tight blend of...view item »

Vexing EP

The Black Dog. Bloomin' love some of their stuff I do. Thought that comeback album on Soma - 'Radio Scarecrow'- was a bit of a duffer but their recent EPs have been boss, including 'Vexing' which is a new 3 tracker on Soma to warm up for the release of new album 'Further Vexations'. '0093' is quite a sweet number, subtle classic techno with a sharp...view item »

Virtual

Scotland's Soma imprint have gone and re-released BLACK DOG's 'Virtual' 12". Originally released way back in 1989 this has been a sought after release, as with much of their back catalogue going for ridiculous. I have to say though that it sounds slightly dated and hasn't quite stood the test of time. I'm sure if you heard...view item »

The Cost

What could be better than eating a fine selection of mini Indian snacks and listening to some timeless early Black Dog. Oh the sheer joy! 'The Cost' has been reissued on Soma. Freshly remastered with a good cut. Sheer heaven. The tracks still sound fresh all these years later. Although these days this stuff is called electronica, back in the day it...view item »

Detroit Vs Sheffield

Mmmmmm! A 'Detroit Vs. Sheffield' face-off is what The Black Dog have lined up on their new 12" through Soma. I was pretty let down by their last album 'Radio Scarecrow' so this 4 tracker is an entirely welcome bonus. The main track 'Train By the Autobahn' is re-jigged twice by the esteemed Robert Hood, one of the few people on the planet capa...view item »

Following the 'Virtual' 12" and Book Of Dogma 2CD, Soma do the do and re-issue The Black Dog's 'Techno Playtime' on wax. For you seasoned doggers(!) this will need no introduction. Classic early 90's breakbeat techno which layed the foundations for the wave of so called IDM that was to follow. Indeed Apt, Chiba, It Felt Like It, Seers and Sage...view item »

Parallel

Parallel isn't an album as much as it is a collection of tracks off of the Black Dog's early GPR EPs. Not surprisingly, though, the quality remains undiminished after all these years. From the first track, "Parallel," you can tell that the Black Dog boys know their stuff. "Glossolalia" ambles by smoothly, whil...view item »

Radio Scarecrow

The Black Dog: Radio Scarecrow (Soma) The latest incarnation of Black Dog continues the legacy of post-techno electronica synonymous with Warp's famous but now defunct series of artificial intelligence recordings pioneered by the likes of Aphex Twin, B12, Autechre and the original line up of Black Dog that included Ed and Andy of Plaid.

Floods

The Black Dog: 'Flood V3' (Soma) A new genre develops right under my nose without even a glimmer of acknowledgement from mates or anything. So, Techno Dubstep then, a kinda of bastard mutation of the pace of everyday techno- rolling beats and metallic FX- colliding with the bassline rumbles and dubwise production stylings of Dubstep.

The Black Dog now only consist of original member Ken Downie and some other chaps. There is big debate as to who was the innovater in their original line up as Plaid went on to become fairly successfull while Downie just kind of lurked in the shadows but still works under the Black Dog Moniker.

Black Dog with Black Sifichi CD on Hydrogen Jukebox- The 1st Black Dog album for years. Minimal electronics with William Burroughs esque miserablisims being ranted over it. I want to like this but I have an overall feeling that's a bit poor compared to what Black Dog can do.......view item »
