Liber Nox (Book 3 Ov 3)
|Artist||The Black Dog|
|Release Date||Out Now|
This is the third of The Black Dog’s Liber series of releases that are purely aimed at the dance floor. It follows the previous, well received Liber Kult & Liber Temple 12″s; these singles all lead to Liber Dogma, due on Soma in October, and further Chapters.
High Rise Choir Reprise opens with clattering percussion taken straight from recordings at Forgemasters before a face-ripping gut-wrenching bassline cuts through with one of The Black Dog’s strongest minimal grooves yet. Built to move heads and feet, the hypnotic groove hooks you instantly while the haunting strings bring the emotion in massive dark waves; you can’t help but fall into this track. Beautifully simple, addictive and massive.
Dissident Bleep is just that. Over the years the myth that Sheffield is all about Bleep and Bass has gathered ground but those who live here know it’s all about the bass. Industrial repetition gives way to twisted vocal samples of “Over, Over”, a sure-fire nod to Cabaret Voltaire, before the kicks and filters pummel you.
