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.
