The thing about The Black Moy is the intense sense of atmosphere in his production. The spaciousness is dense, the solidity lighter than air, so cold it could melt the hottest flow of molten rock, so sheer to be opaque in its ranging telephonic scope. These tracks come on strong like an invasion, but they are so petite as to be discrete about their obliteration.

The tight 5 pack EP runs as a mini set of five independent parts. Separate for dj use. Play together for an experience. Starting with the growling sparseness of Cerebral Probe, drums coming at you like whiplash, into the fortified jack’n territory of Blacknoise, passing through the minimalism of Intellectual Killer, huge syncopated breaking beats of Drug Effects, and finally coming at the cavernous kick driven space of Snoob that blows the doors off and takes the walls with it.

This EP mounts an argument that keeps on coming until the conclusion is forgone and all counter has long since evaporated in its wake. Scintillating oscillating synth rhythms drive the tracks, amidst which tuned and detuned percussion rolls through like a tide. Treated together the Cerebral Probe EP could really be seen as an instrument to do just that. Fortify and strengthen ones cerebral capacity to endure; to fortify the funk and to drive out the deva’s forever. Treat this release as medicine and swallow it whole.

The Black Moy

The Black Moy is the alias for Strasbourg based producer Marc Chapard. With the discovery of electronic music in 1996, his interest quickly grew into a passion for the darker moods of the techno sound. It wasn’t long before the same passion led him on a quest of writing and producing, a quest that commenced in ’99 shows no sign of abating.

The Black Moy owns the dual distinction of the second ever release on Machine Label, The Abyss EP [MACH002] back in 2011, and the quickest follow up ever with the Bass Syndrome EP [MACH003] also in 2011. Quietly going about his work in the time since, he has become the most prolific artist on Machine Label, with the Parameters EP [MACH012] in 2013, the Natural Process EP [MACH026] in 2015, and now his 5th EP, Galvanised Blain [MACH034] slated for a June 2017 release. The Black Moy stakes a fair claim to being the most influential sound on the label.

The second part of The Black Moy’s quest is the pursuit of something unique to offer a market flooded with the hallmarks of generic beats. To that end individuality is what the Black Moy strives for in his sonic exploration. With a foundation laid upon solid beat structures and mesmerising atmospherics, there is an abundantly clear dancelfoor prerogative, but with an unexpected and alluring artefact; plenty of deep and experimental headroom. The Black Moy’s compositions are characterised by an enormity of space and a density of sound. Together the two make for a spellbinding contradiction sure to keep the ears interested and the body moving.
