Now I'm Just a Number: Soundtracks 1994-95 Black Rain
Kiran Sande’s label Blackest Ever Black has been on the forefront in bringing dystopian, post punk, industrial, techno and goth-aesthetics back together. Black Rain’s long lost soundtrack works (one of which was originally planned as the score for the Keanu Reeves-featuring Hollywood flick Johnny Mnemonic, but was eventually dismissed in favour of Mychael Danna’s score) sit perfectly with the label’s dark aesthetic. If you can recall Johnny Mnemonic’s plot, it was a dark and dystopian sci-fi flick based on a William Gibson short story, and that’s exactly how the seven pieces on „Now I’m Just A Number: Soundtracks 1994 – 1995“ sound like. Bleak atmospherics and gloomy electronics mixed together to create an overall feel of desolation and dread. If you like Vatican Shadow, you will most likely love this.
