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.
