A Guy Called Gerald: Black Secret Technology (1995)

Black Secret Technology, the fourth and definitive album from UK jungle pioneer Gerald Simpson, quickly proves itself exceptional in its ability to merge forward-thinking rhythms with moody, complex melodies and heady emotional subtext, something rare in the early 90’s drum & bass scene that Simpson was birthed from. The 2008 reissue of Black Secret Technology is the one to get, as the re-mastering makes all the difference here: just one listen to highlight Silent Cry [below], with its dank sub-bass, shuffling high-hats and proto-Burial soft-synth swells, and you’ll hear why.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
