Press Release:

A Guy Called Gerald's original underground classic Black Secret Technology is now available again 13 years after its original release. 1995's BLACK SECRET TECHNOLOGY, a bewildering mix of tight breakbeats, techno textures, and flickering, dream-struck voices, has been often imitated but never equalled. Gerald credits much of his work to serendipity, but that doesn't explain the staggering cybernetic wallop packed by "Alita's Dream" and "Survival," or the supreme sensuality of "The Nile." The album is woven through with perfect techno-pop bridges, confronting the harsh realities of technology with the life-affirming spirituality of Gerald's club-classic debut, HOT LEMONADE. Balanced on the razor edge between mysticism and frenzy, TECHNOLOGY remains a powerful comment on the eternal struggle between man and his future.
