LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Nine tracks drawn from the by now infamous blue-bagged, vinyl Electrilogy series, plus an all new, unreleased bonus trilogy of killer tracks, all lovingly mastered for this release by Bola. The Device label, convened in Manchester by Datathief, and sporting gorgeous artwork by alter-ego Gique, makes a stunning return with this, its first compact disc. Mr Carl A. Finlow, aka Silicon Scally, Voice Stealer, Random Factor, Il-Ek-Tro, has over the last decade or so appeared on quality imprints such as Warp, SCSI-av, 20/20 Vision, Playhouse, Satamile, Klang -- in fact the list is virtually never-ending. This series of releases were the first to bear Carl's own name, and went some way to defining yet another aspect of this amazing producer, somewhere along the way summing up the massive surge in the electrodisco scene over the last three or four years. Effortlessly fashioning the continuing influence of classic eighties and nineties electronic music --imagine a global trajectory spanning Kraftwerk, YMO, John Foxxx, Italian electrodisco, Yorkshire bleeps and Drexciya -- Carl has pretty well delivered an all new manifesto for the dirty funk."
