5.0 out of 5 stars A total classic... 13 Feb 2009
By Robster
Format:Audio CD
Back in the day when Goldie's 'Timeless' became Jungle's first 'coffee table' album, there had already been a record that set the genre benchmark which that more socially-acceptable release would attempt to emmulate. That was Black Secret Technology and after many years, it finally gets a much deserved (not to mention needed) remaster...

Gerald Simpson's utter classic sounds fresher today that in 1995 as it effortlessly weaves spikey breaks with lush, Detroit inspired synth chords and samples which is so evocative of the jungle/hardcore sound....

In fact, here he's demonstrating the genre at it's peak with a style from precisely around the time the scene split between it's two main components (Techno / Drum & Bass). Devoid of the sterile repetition of so many later Drum & Bass albums, this has incredible warmth, lustre and depth. It takes you back to pirate radio in your bedroom, cassettes shared amongst mates and much more besides....

Goldie got the headlines, Gerald got the album....

Magnificent...

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Classic 31 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
I knew the moment I first heard this album that it was possessed of true musical alchemy, music both of it's time, and way way in the future.
Black Secret Technology has lost none of it's power, this is a true testament to genre which coughed up Goldie, and spat out the now dated rubbish that was Timeless, if there was any justice in the world BST should have become the figurehead of D'n'B, but seemingly cursed on release by poor volume mastering,( I had to remaster it myself using Soundforge on my PC to up the recording levels and boost the bottom end) it's taken 12 years to right this wrong, now a true classic of the genre can be heard as it surely should have been.
The secret is out, spread the word.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original and best 18 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
After becoming disillusioned with the state of house as it got dragged into the mainstream, Gerald Simpson continued to show he was the innovator he had always been and came out with this masterpiece. After his early jungle experiments on Juice Box Records (compiled as 28 Gun Bad Boy, which is unfortunately out of print as I write this), Black Secret Technology has a fair claim to being the first major milestone record in the genre. It has yet to be bettered. Simpson's research of indigenous African rhythmic patterns, combined with his own natural affinity for dance music really shines through. I've never heard another album that does so much with rhythm..not even in jazz. If you like your jungle, and don't have this record, then you should definitely look into it. Even better, this 2008 reissue is completely remastered, replacing the washed out bass of the old CD mix with low levels that you can actually hear. Turn it up and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is it 25 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
Oooooh energy, ah feel your energy. This is by far and away one of the outstanding Jungle/Drum & Bass (whatever you want to call it) albums of all time I rushed to the shop and bought it on double vynal upon released and have never been dissapointed with it. There may have been level problems on the original and I haven;t heard this version (hope it's not the washed down one that followed on CD). I was sorely dissapointed with all the hoo hah about Goldies Timeless cos it ain anything compared to this.....if you haven't got it -buy it
