Dokument .01 is a very special release for us, since it showcases our love for dadaism and all that it inspired.

We have gone to some lengths to make this a really compelling package. Limited to 300 units in total, it has been mastered and cut by Simon Francis and pressed on super heavy 180 gram red vinyl. 150 units come with a hand-numbered two-colour sleeve designed by DO, a hand stamped label, and a very beautiful fine art print on Kodak Endura Metallic Paper inspired by Man Ray and taken by the respected photographer Shaun Bloodworth, who is well known for his work for Rinse FM and Tempa.

Dokument .01 features two tracks of beatless inner city industrial ambient. Strung Valve Checkout is a gorgeous 11 minute sequence of piano-fuelled drones. Dada Fish Sticks is equally affecting, a lulling industrial classical mesh of sound with hints of melody.

What makes this release particularly special is the combination of talents behind the music. Dadavistic Orchestra is a collaboration between The Black Dog and 3 former members of The Psychick Warriors of Gaia. Both are recognised innovators in electronic music who have been hugely influential and popular throughout their careers. The two collectives have been close for many years, and their musical collaboration has evolved over the last year, with Dokument .01 being the first work to be released.

Dadavistic Orchestra are Martin Dust, Tim Freeman, Richard Dust, Arbe, Ken Downie and Robbert Heijnen.

Two further Dokuments are currently in progress.
