VCMG release one of 2012’s most anticipated musical collaborations with the album Ssss, out on Mute on March 13th, 2012.
It marks the long awaited reunion of electronic pioneers Vince Clarke (Erasure/ Yaz/ Depeche Mode) and Martin L. Gore (Depeche Mode), who have joined forces for the first time in over thirty years to craft a 10-track album which demonstrates their mutual love of electronic music.
After initial tentative discussions, and a meeting at Short Circuit presents Mute festival in London, where they both performed, these two influential musicians and songwriters worked in a typically unique way. Clarke and Gore worked alone in their respective studios, communicating only via email and exchanging files until the album was ready. The album includes the recent 12” EP1 / Spock, described by XLR8R as “the sort of taut tune that guides the late-night dancefloors”, plus the forthcoming EP 2 / Single Blip.
Ssss, written and produced by Vince Clarke and Martin L. Gore, was mixed by Timothy “Q” Wiles, recorded and engineered by Sie Medway Smith and Vince Clarke and mastered by Stefan Betke (aka Pole).
Full remix details for EP2 / Single Blip, the follow up to EP1 / Spock – out now on 12” / download and featuring remixes by Edit-Select, Regis, DVS1 and XOQ – will follow.
