"Nine tracks drawn from the by now infamous blue-bagged, vinyl
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."
GREEN LIGHT RECORDINGS (GERMANY)
"For our first release, we have three solid tracks aimed specifically for the dance floor -- written and produced by one of our favorite producers, Carl Finlow. Carl, currently living in Paris, has been writing and recording music since 1986 and in 1995, he and Ralph Lawson set up 2020 Vision Records. He has also worked under the names of Voice Stealer (Subvert) and Silicon Scally (SCSI, Satamile), and has released music on labels including Warp, Fuel, Playhouse, Paper, Trope, Sony, Klang, Arista, Soma, Pagan and Minifunk. He has just released his second album,
, on Satamile Records under his Silicon Scally guise as well as continuing to tour the world with his live performances. Carl has certainly lived up to his expertise once again with this EP. Punchy kicks, deep, driving bass lines and layer upon layer of quality hi tech funk."
Count On It
SEVENTH SIGN RECORDS (SCOTLAND)
"Smooth Carl Finlow house tracks with an electro feel. Probably one of his most floor-oriented releases in a while. Can be compared with his massive
release on Klang but more straightforward. This even reminds us of the classic The Other People Place release on Clone and Warp."
