Vincent Clarke is a quiet pioneer whose fingerprints are left across a number of some of the most beloved bands in pop culture. Depeche Mode, The Assembly, Yazoo, and perhaps most notably Erasure, have each produced art that has left an indelible mark on the modern world of music. In a career that has spanned over 3 decades Clarke has embarked on a new collaborative project with another legend from the world of EDM.
2Square, a collection of tracks composed with Paul Hartnoll from Orbital is released this week on Vincent Clarke's own label VeryRecords. The collection represents all of the refreshing innovations that audiences have come to expect from the duo across their previous individual projects, but there is also chemistry, nuance and strength in an album that keenly dances through an ever-evolving genre.
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann joined Vincent Clarke for an insight into the process behind 2Square, his working relationship with a fellow synth-geek, and just how it feels to wear so many hats while making a record.
