The Black Dog must be a joy to remix with their home-made and hand-crafted array of bleeps, bloops and beats. Their Further Vexations album is a perfect example of these unique sounds and textures. As the final release from their Further Vexations album, tBd ask Claro Intelecto, Redshape, Silicone Soul and Octogen to remix some of their favourite tracks from the album.

Kicking it all off is fellow Northerner Mark Stewart, aka Claro Intelecto, with his rollicking take on Northern Electronic Soul. A kick drum, laden in reverb, pounds over ducking bass and reversing, filtered stabs, all while a haunting and hollow bell clangs through. This track swings from side-to-side, knocking everything down in its path with a relentless, break-free groove. 

CCTV Nation is ironically treated by the anonymous man in the mask, Redshape. A slow and chunky beat builds with ticking percussion and distorted, phasing snares. Nods to Detroit fashioned from the original shine through the murky sub bass, as synths build and drop fluidly throughout. This remix has a classic and time-less air to it. 

Silicone Soul combines a slap funk b-line with the original synths, pads and shimmering percussion on their Skinclock remix. Working in tandem with tBds original chord progression, the bass-line brings another dimension to the dark and brooding original, while glitched-out and sliced percussion adds elements of alarm to the swinging groove. This is Silicone Soul at the peak of their game. 

Kissing Someone Else's D.O.G. is reworked by the on-form Octogen in his typically f*cked-up fashion. Marco Bernardi has a style that is instantly recognisable with his analogue machines and classic-sounding percussion and this remix is no exception. Throw in some disjointed synth patterns and you have a remix that will amaze any dance-floor!
