8/10 Ant Staff review, 17 January 2018
George Thompson aka Black Merlin (Jealous God, Pinkman etc.) arrives back on Berceuse Heroique, following the excellent ‘Proto World’ EP and delves into his archives. He’s unearthed 5 cuts of pure dancefloor voodoo, luxuriously spread across this double 12-inch set. The hypnosis begins with the serpentine arpeggios and avian bleeping of ‘Agro’ as it tunnels ever further into cosmic darkness.
The booming ‘Shock’ lies somewhere between the sci-fi techno of Jeff Mills and the sheer weight and sound design of younger artists like Sciahri - proper trippy, hyperspace business. ‘12515’ is glorious, sleazy, disco-tinged dancefloor fuel that has me thinking of Lory D’s edit of John Carpenter & Alan Howarth's 'The Bank Robbery'. So good this tune. ‘The Alpaca Pet Boys’ brings tropical heat like some Balearic New Beat mutant as it stomps along with a funky ass bassline at its core, lots of dreamy swirling synth and trippy bubble and animal sounds. Final cut ‘Laz’ is a peach too - recalling the lush Detroit techno of Carl Craig with its gorgeous blue synth.
You’d have to be a special sort of numpty to miss this.
