Vince Clarke and Martin Gore’s collaboration into electronic dance music called VCMG is upon us with their first release Spock. I think it’s hard to jump genres and if your already famous for something it’s very difficult to get fans to accept your new art. I honestly was expecting to hate what they did but I’m pleasantly surprised. The original version of Spock is quite nice. It’s a well produced metallic analog sounding track with a modern arrangement. It’s worthy and has me hoping for more. Listen to samples of the songs:…

“Earlier this year, Gore had revealed that he and Clarke had reconciled and would be working on a new project together. “Out of the blue I got an e-mail from [Clarke] just saying, ‘I’m interested in making a techno album. Are you interested in collaborating?,'” he said. “He said, ‘No pressure, no deadlines,’ so I said, ‘OK,’ and that’s what I’ve been doing for the last six months.” –

  1. I don’t know. I fully agree artists have to change to evolve. Guess it’s just too techno for me, but it sounds a bit anonymous and unpersonal to me.

    Martin Gore doing techno?! Huh! We’re used to hear more personal stuff from the guy. I never liked Vince Clarke’s work, but come on, Martin! We all know you can do better than that…
