Alongside the likes of Autechre and Aphex Twin, Andy Turner and Ed Handley – as part of The Black Dog – came to define the UK techno movement in the mid 1990s. Plaid began as an off-shoot of earlier work, allowing Turner and Handley to experiment with avant-garde, emotive ambient. Shuffle beats, celestial chord progression and Fx mastery mark Plaid’s standout tracks.
