Maaco from Detroit and Overdose from RotterHague had some time in the studio together and here’s what came out, somewhat old somewhat new somewhat slew. Grischer from Cologne takes all the girls home, and makes them program beats.

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”).
