A Guy Called Gerald - Black Secret Technology

Black Secret Technology came out in 1995, at the peak of jungle, but it would never get played, you wouldn’t hear this in the club. He was already making something about the music rather than the music, but he made this stuff smack in the middle of the peak time of jungle. He made a jungle record that nobody can play. It has these beautiful synths and it's fucked, and all the beats are sort of ‘out’. I don't know what the guy was doing, I don’t know what he was dragging, or from where he was dragging it, but he did, and something happened and this was was created, and it's just that thing.
