Black Dog Productions. Exclusive Prime pricing. Black Dog's "Bytes" is a very electronic recording with a very human element at its core, posessing more character and sounding more emotional and alive than most rock or pop music being released today. 4 people found this helpful.

The Black Dog. Bytes. Black Dog Productions' full-length debut is a sprawling deviation from dancefloor-fare, weaving surprisingly engaging melodic and harmonic passages around complex rhythmic patterns and diverse, somewhat ambient atmospherics. Although all of the material was previously released in 12" or EP form, it holds up surprisingly well as a unified, coherent whole.

Reviews about Black Dog Productions - Bytes (4):
Quality of this pressing is really bad. Had two copies both awful - get the regular issue on black vinyl..
Unfortunately I had the same problem , a few tracks sound ok , others are very distorted , no depth . WillNeed to hunt down the black edition .
I love this production.
