back in the 00s i ended up on a few mailing lists.
some were great, ninja tune, $tateside/emi etc.
many were not so great.
but there was one that really hit the spot.
a small unknown label in sheffield….
and the reason was all down to one 12" single that they managed to release.
the label was dust science.
the home of a revised version of the black dog collective.
the gang were massive fans of cabaret voltaire, and somehow they persuaded the mighty richard h. kirk to hand over 4 tracks from his archive for a very special 12" release.
and it was this release that i got on cd-r from the label that kickstarted my revised love affair with techno.
to this day this ep is still one of the best things i ever was privileged to hear cos of my crappy blog.
the beats, the quickfire samples, the bleeps, the sheer addictiveness of the machine noise never fails to hit the spot.
