If you love real techno house electro music just get this. It’s timeless. Warm. Cool. And a real bargain.

Kenny Larkin's alter ego Dark Comedy seems to stem from his other love - performing as a comedian. When my brother told me about this I thought he was proper lying, but yes, on Mr Larkins myspace you'll find out more.

The album plays heavily on his sense of humour - the comical 'why did the chicken cross the road', the 'tellin lies' sub vocal contradicting the main theme, the funny 'baby blues' high pitched voice. This is foiled with seriously themed tracks like 'In my house' describing the time he was shot.

The album is a brilliant display of production and musical talent, the dark comedy synth sounds are just unique, the blues influence twisted into the heart of the tracks. I think Mr Larkin put his soul into it.

This album for me sums up why Kenny is the greatest producer to come outta the D IMHO. Such beauty and emotion in every track make for a truly special listening experience. Kenny Larkin is pushing the boundaries of Detroit Techno into areas no other producer is even attempting to. For me the highlight has to be House Music. Beautiful chords and an emotiv vocal combine to make a incredible piece of music. This album is a masterpiece. Invest your money in this today, you will not be disappointed.
