Boomkat Product Review:
A classic techno album resurfaces with reissue of Dan Curtin’s lush, sought-after début LP for Peacefrog
Originally dispatched in 1994, ‘The Silicon Dawn’ is Curtin’s seminal contribution to then widening Detroit techno sound. Coming from Cleveland, Ohio, he wasn’t a Detroit native, but, like other artists such as Richie Hawtin thru to Laurel Halo nowadays, he was effectively a close onlooker who mutated the sound from a relative outsider position.
But unlike the aforementioned artists, Dan’s sound was beautifully within grasping distance of Carl Craig’s jazz-techno sophistication, Derrick May’s inimitable kaotic harmonies, and UR’s hardcore rhythms.
