Boomkat Product Review:
Saying that this man needs no introduction would truly be an understatment. Suburban Knight's (aka James Pennington) contributions to the world of techno, house and music in general are unequivocal. His influence on electronic music can hardly be summed up in a simple biography. Dating back to his early works as a member of Inner City for their two biggest hits "Big Fun" and "Good Life". He then made his way into the world of techno, forever changing it, with his killer "The Art of Stalking" on the fledgling Transmat Label. The heavy reverbs and abstractly angular synths were best described as musical cubism. His marriage of dark abstraction, melody, and menacing rhythms proved to have devastating effects on the dancefloor. He then went on to join the Underground Resistance camp as a producer and touring DJ. His first vinyl offering for UR was a massive techno hit "Noctorbulus Behavior." Thus reassuring his status as one of techno musicís truly great pioneers. On UR he also contributed to the "Dark Energy" release and his EP "By Night." And his track "Maroon" was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the Underground Resistance compilation album "Interstellar Fugitives. After releasing his first real album "My Sol Dark Destination" on Peacefrog he returns with an outstanding new double album on Submerge - with 21 tracks for all you followers of Detroit Techno and electro variations at their best.
