Technical Itch provides us with dark and complex drum'n'bass tracks on Diagnostics, which sadly is one of Tech Itch's very few full lengths feauturing own material. I would group this album under 'intelligent drum and bass'; not mindless hedonistic music to dance to (which is fun in it's own right), but definitely material for armchair listening.
Diagnostics, where computer-terms play a role in the theme, has a strong dark futuristic undercurrent. It's mechanistic, with distorted buzz and peepsounds making up a good part of the soundscape, but also non-linear and organic. The songs evolve on many different levels, like an industrial city grows and changes in various dimensions.
This is top-notch material, only allowing the listener to apreciate it on repeated listens, but then leaving him or her hungering for more. Highly original and unique. (Note: the cd version features more material than the LP version)

Many years after buying this, I still consider Diagnostics to be the greatest drum and bass album of all time. The music is intricate and dynamic, unlike a lot of later Tech Itch work. There's a definite techno vibe through the album too, which I appreciate a lot. The only track that still doesn't do it for me is 1730. It's not a bad track by itself, it's just no where as good as the rest of the album.
