    Kode 9 has released some tracks that are verging on the broken beat scene construction, but "Black Sun" - which also reminds a lot of 2562's "Dinosaur" - is the closest he ever was to that. Though I love that scene I was not in London at the time and the Madrid representation was quite sparse, so I am not sure if there was a cross scene polinisation or something, because one of the things that intrigued me the most about the so called post dubstep scene was how much it was taking from uk garage, broken beat and jungle and that was never or barely discussed on media, or no one was actually tracing the similarities between well known tracks of those genres. Anyway, good track, with those Detroitish synth pads and the very Dan Curtin dissonant stacatto riffs... however I would say that I prefer the house (or bruk) take on the later LP.

    2 Far Gone is closer to the early Joy Orbison (or early xxxy or early George Fitzgerald, you choose) but God those synth pads are made from heaven. This polyrhythmic rave heaven scene did not last long but did I enjoy it during the months it lasted.

      I dedicate this to my brother Dom!
      He passed away in 1989.
      Hence the reason why I still listen to underground music...
      It still affects me.
      Just like this soundscape effects me!
      E helped me recover.
      To a point.

      Reason...

      It makes me realize thru time that you can only trust one kind of doctor...

      And that is YOURSELF!!!

      (P.s. I'm not really a fan of Kode 9's other work (sorry) but these two tracks are pure mastery)
