Review - Pantha Du Prince: Black Noise


Share This Article:


At first glance one might be forgiven for thinking that this sounds too much like its predecessor, This Bliss. pantha du prince

Such criticisms are, in some ways, justified  the general aesthetic here is very similar. But Black Noise has an added sheen of accessibility, and few other minimal techno releases could ever be this catchy.

A prime example would be Panda Bear collaboration 'Stick To My Side', which should theoretically be a jumbled mess, but instead manages to be as dreamy and hook filled as anything on Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Welt Am Draht is more traditional techno fare, but still manages to be utterly charming. That said, there isn't a bad track on here. The only problem is that about half of the good tracks sound too much like their forerunners.
