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 capable of constantly pioneering work within a field as restrictive as minimal techno. His first mix is pretty ace actually, spacious, echo laden....dub effects careering off frisky hi-hats, an hypnotic bass kick and some euphoric snare rhythms. He's a bloody master of his craft is this man, a proper astral groover. Black Dog's own remix is a more downtempo travelogue, blending classic mid 90's ambient shades into a sweet mid-paced techno mover, flecked with some nice acid burbling & drifting FSOL-ish stargazing! The other R. Hood mix is much more minimal, like ambient electronica with a repetitive piano refrain. Like Terry Riley on E? It morphs into a spiraling, sensuous slightly balearic techno piece with such beautiful subtlety I feel like crying! Old Warped types Forgemaster's push their Bass Soldier to the fore to tear up the only other tune, 'Siiiipher'. It's a brief, brooding, electroid piece with stark snare action, waspish keys, a slightly future-dubsteppa rhythm and a slightly aquatic vibe. Not a duffer in sight, this is a fine remix project we feel and should appeal to most lovers of progressive electronica & classic techno!
