IDM legends The Black Dog return with a new album, now consisting of founding member Ken Downie along with Richard and Martin Dust of Dust Science Recordings, ‘Tranklements’ is their latest in a lengthy 20-odd year career and it’s great to see them still putting out amazing records.
This is IDM from the masters that pretty much started the whole genre, along with the likes of LFO, Autechre and Aphex Twin (back when he was just a wee scamp!). ‘Alien Boys’ is a warm bass driven tune that soothes you into the album slowly and gently, ‘Atavistic Resurgence’ is an acid squelch with a little bit of soul and just a hint of lush strings. The Black Dog ride that fine line between ambient and dancefloor with tracks like ‘Hymn For Soyo’ and ‘Pray Crash I and II’ giving it the full-on four to the floor treatment, there are also a few blissed out moments like ‘Internal Collapse’ which has a Global Communication vibe to it and ‘Death Bingo’ has a similar chill out sound. ‘Tranklements’ doesn’t really hold any surprises but it’s The Black Dog at what they do best and that’s good enough for me!
