Since the release of Silenced in October 2005 The Black Dog have been working delicately on its successor. Two years in the making and the first album to be completed in their new Sheffield Lab.
Radio Scarecrow has been over two years in the making, constantly developing and building, culminating in a masterpiece work that flows delightfully and hits hard. A true progression on Silenced, the trio are keen to note ?the beats are faster and the bass is much heavier ? so much so that it was making us ill working with the low frequencies for hours on end, we could only do 3 hours at a time on some parts?.
For this year’s annual celebration, I will be airing an exclusive set by THE BLACK DOG. I’ll also be taking a trip down memory lane and playing some of the classic tracks that got me hooked on techno.
The show will air on January 16, 2008 at 9:30pm (GMT -5:00) Eastern US Time. Listen live at www.wesufm.org

The Black Dog – Floods – Soma 231 12″
A. Floods V3
B1. Floods V3.2 ( Surgeon Remix)
B2. Floods V3.1 (The Bass Soldier Remake)
After months of waiting and what seems like a lifetime mastering and mixing , the new single is finally here. We got Single Of The Month in Mixmag and the single seems to be going down really, really well. Anyway here’s some DJ feedback on the release:
Shelley Parker ? This is excellent! Just so great to hear this dubstep/techno sound being pushed to it?s limits. Fave mix Surgeon. Will chart in Nov.
Louis Osbourne ? This Surgeon mix is wicked? it?s got some serious fun in there.
Josh Wink ? Very interesting record, as usual for tBd?Surgeon mix is something that I may try out. Top production as usual.
Laurent Garnier ? looooooove the dubstep remix. Will definitely play that.
