Pantha Du Prince - Black Noise (4 stars)

Pantha Du Prince - Black Noise

(Rough Trade)

Hendrick Weber’s third album, the follow up to 2007’s acclaimed This Bliss, is equally laden with his signature digital bells, chimes, dings and tings. It’s also full of brilliant examples of the more recognisable elements of minimal techno’s sonic pallette, with low sine waves, fragments of acoustic guitars, and kick drums so warm and fuzzy that they’re akin to being given a great big hug.

Roll in guest turns from LCD Soundsystem’s Tyler Pope and Animal Collective vocalist Noah Lennox on ‘Stick To My Side’, plus the fact that it’s out on Rough Trade, and you have a highly-anticipated minimal techno album that could find a more-than-minimal audience.
