Vinyl LP pressing includes bonus CD edition. 2010 release from the American DJ/producer. Black City can't be found on any map. It's a composite, an imaginary metropolis peopled by desperate cases, lovelorn souls, and amoral motives. Like most literary gothams, Black City is a place to love and hate, as seedy as a nightclub's back room and as seductive as the promise of power. Matthew Dear, the musician, may live in New York City, but the Matthew Dear of Black City inhabits a sound-world unlike any other: A monument to the shadowy side of urban life that bumps and creaks, shudders and wakes up screaming in the middle of the night.
