Celebrating Christmas with Erasure

September 10, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

september09032013

Out on November 11th is the new Erasure album, which will be called “Snow Globe”. “Snow Globe” is a collection of 13 original compositions and seasonal classics. The album will be preceded by a single, “Gaudete”, which is the band’s interpretation of the Medieval Christmas carol that was also a folk hit for Steeleye Span in 1973.

Vince Clarke on what it will sound like:

Well, we’ll strip the songs down as much as possible and go really minimal. The songs are great anyhow, and Andy will sing like… well, Andy is Andy and that won’t change. The only thing that will change is the music. It will be very much 8-bit like and using sounds sparingly. I’m not sure people will like it, I’m sure they will though. But what we have done so far sounds very different to what we have done so far. (Interview via SL)

Super synth group: Vince Clarke & Martin Gore Announce VCMG

November 22, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Vince Clarke (Erasure, Yazoo, Depeche Mode) and Martin L. Gore (Depeche Mode) have announced that they are releasing an album as VCMG. It’s the duo’s first collaboration in 30 years.

According to Clarke and Gore, VCMG is an opportunity for the duo to “exercise their lifelong love of the genre as the techno-inspired VCMG.”

“I’ve been getting into and listening to a lot of minimal dance music,” says Clarke. “I got really intrigued by all the sounds.”

“I realized I needed a collaborator,” he adds, “so it occurred to me to talk to Martin.”

“Out of the blue, I got an e-mail from Vince just saying, ‘I’m interested in making a techno album. Are you interested in collaborating?’” says Gore. “This was maybe a year ago. He said, ‘No pressure, no deadlines,’ so I said, ‘OK’.”

What do you think of the idea of Vince Clarke & Martin Gore collaborating again, after 30 years? And is VCMG the world’s first electronic music supergroup?

VCMG – Spock

Clarke and Gore plan to release several EP’s, as VCMG, followed by an album.

The first release is an EP entitled Spock. EP1 / SPOCK will feature remixes from Edit-Select, aka Tony Scott, the UK DJ / producer; Regis, British techno musician Karl O’Connor; Zak aka DVS1, founder of Hush Records plus XOQ, the alter ego of Überzone / Q, who mixed the VCMG album.

EP1/SPOCK will be available starting Nov 30th on Beatport, and in wider distribution on Dec 12. 12″ vinyl hits Dec 19th.
