EDO8 presents Binary System – Binary System [CWCS021]

EDO8 aka Mr. Portamento, part of Doubledutch and half of the Cosmic Force (who had their debut on Clone Records in 1998!). EDO8 comes back with solo work on the Clone West Coats Series. After years of relative silence the dutch electro master hits back hard with this funked up 6 tracker of pure machine funk. Techno, House and Electro rooted in the classics…. the undoubtable influences of early Detroit techno, Kraftwerk and 80’s electro are present and stirred to a unique blend which results in EDO8’s signature sound carefully developed and crafted over the last 25 years.

Versalife – Night Time Activities LP [CWCS006LP]

The original Versalife tryptich on Clone West Coast Series. “Night Time Activities” is taking us down deep into the night. Versalife is creating a setting with sounds radiating the midnight atmosphere that reflects the twin peak-esque life on a almost deserted windy Dutch coastal island where the clouds rush through the dark night time skies projecting all variations of grey and black on the mystifying dunes. Futuristic electro techno tracks with emotive synth work created with exploratory imagination. Dark, sinister and intense!

D.I.E. – The Men You’ll Never See Pt. 2 [CWCS010]

Second time around for D.I.E’s The Man You’ll Never See Part 2, a near legendary set of bustling, funk-fuelled electro cuts that first surfaced on Clone back in 2003. This new edition includes five of the EP’s six original tracks, replacing “Space Travel” with the similarly sought-after “Programming” – a Drexciya-esque workout rich in fizzing drum machine beats, rumbling sub-bass and deep space acid lines – which originally appeared on 2002’s Keep Hanging EP. It remains a superb set of tracks, all told, with the Motor City duo flitting between deep and melodious cuts (“Other People”), vocal-laced Cybotron tributes (“Keep Hanging”), decidedly intergalactic fare (“Out With Tha Old”) and quirky, glassy-eyed gems (“U Can’t See Us”).

Lab Rat XL – Mice or Cyborg [CAL011/C#31LP]

For those not schooled in Drexciyan history, Lab Rat XL was a short-lived alternative alias of the legendary Motor City electro duo. Mice or Cyborg, the project’s only release, originally appeared on Clone in 2003, just months after member James Stinson passed away. It remains a superb example of timeless, otherworldly electro and techno fusion, with Stinson’s penchant for ethereal melodies, atmospheric chords and fizzing drum machine rhythms – such a regular feature of his work with both Drexciya and the Other People Place – rightfully coming to the fore. Naturally, the inherent positivity of some of the tracks is counter-balanced by clandestine creepiness in others, making Mice or Cyborg a brilliantly balanced and hugely entertaining collection of cuts.
