DVS1’s Black Russian is the sophistication of techno. It is the sophistication of simplicity. While techno often prides itself for its minimalist industrial aesthetics, Black Russian stands out as an antithesis to this idea. It is an elegantly complex execution of a simple idea. The track contrasts it’s endless repetition with it’s consistently evolving mixing of sounds. The solemn sounds would fit in a ballroom as much as a dark club in the morning hours. It is the material product and embodiment of techno’s haute culture status.
