  • Yorkshire trio The Black Dog have announced their next album, Tranklements. The veteran outfit revealed the plans on their official website. In a statement, the trio admitted that they've "always felt like the awkward outsiders," but credited Sheffield collective Electronic Supper Club with helping them "reconnect with many things and each other." They added: "The real underground is still as vibrant as ever, not lost to false values, over-sized egos and ladder climbing brands. We've always respected that energy and individuality that exists beyond the bland compliant mainstream." Tranklements, which is set for release on Dust Science Recordings, is described by the trio as a "body of work created as 16 unique and individual tracks." The album will be preceded by a series of four EPs called Darkhaus. The first Darkhaus 12-inch will be released through Ostgut Ton's Unterton sublabel on March 25th, with two original tracks and an LB Dub Corp (AKA Luke Slater) remix: this will be followed by another EP featuring a remix from another doyen of UK techno, Regis. None of the material featuring on the Darkhaus 12-inches will appear on Tranklements, whose 11 tracks are interspersed by "bolts," which The Black Dog describe as "small bits of music that help or disrupt the transition between tracks."
