The Black Dog exploring the old ways… ”We pushed further by adopting old practices, working with one synth per person and limiting the use of our computers. We only stopped short of putting everything on beer crates. It seems like madness these days, but there is raw creativity within these confines.”

VA – Soma Compilation 2010 [SOMADA082]
Another edition of Soma’s annual compilation series, this time featuring previously unreleased contributions from Slam and Gary Beck, with further cuts from Let’s Go Outside, Funk D’Void, Sian and Joris Voorn. Quite unexpectedly, Autechre are involved too, supplying a remix of The Black Dog’s ‘Tunnels OV Set’. Getting first dibs, Itamar Sagi’s ‘One Million Oaks’ ushers in the album with a fine piece of tech-house production spurred on by driving chord stabs so restrained that they seem to imply a melody more than actually deliver one. Further into the sequence and Soma bosses Slam take on a solid remix of Samuel L. Session’s ‘Can You Relate’ with neatly evolving drum patterns underlined by flurrying synths and modulating, drone-like sustains. Other highlights include the minimal opus ‘Jelle’, by super-group Mihalis Safras, Mark Broom and Jelle Kuipers and Ripperton’s great remix of Silicone Soul’s ‘Dust Ballad II’, featuring haunting vocals, big Detroit-style strings and great, in-depth drum production. A good, strong selection all-round.
