The Black Ideal is our first compilation imagined in close relation with the content of Monograph’s first issue. It is, in a sense, both the climax and the conclusion of a response to the black ideal question ; composed for the occasion of eight unprecedented tracks. It invites eight already well established artists as well as newcomers into different horizons, halfway between incisive primitivist rave-techno and cerebral experimentations — it results in an aesthetic with a background relating to industrial music and soot-blackened sound in cramped basements and dilapidated warehouses ; as well as far darker climes refining the edgy inclinations of modern techno.
