It's no wonder that MOS Deep has managed to build itself a serious reputation within the deeper side of the techno spectrum, with a family of artists that seem to mature with each release. The latest instalment comes from Dutch DJ and producer, R A G aka Aroy Dee who collaborated with Ma Spaventi on the previous MOS Deep cut. "Chunky analogue" is the best term to describe these three tracks and this is a further delight given the domination of plug-ins and software these days. Title track "Black Rain" begins with a warm and punchy kick-drum accompanied by a series of crunchy snares and hi-hats which flow in unison with a ghostly melody. The analogue mix on the flip side has an eye on the dance floor and allows the drum machine more space to play, but still manages to retain most of the mystique created on the A-Side. As if that wasn't enough, there is even an ambient mix for all those wishing to go that further step into the ether.
