OK so this is not exactly breaking news in the league of Ricardo Villalobos standing for parliament or James Blake being arrested for a drive by shooting, but it’s something we like quite a lot – and even more so for being particularly unexpected.

Marc Houle is probably best known for his association with Minus, and functional, but still rather excellent techno cuts like ‘Flapping Around’. So when we heard about a two hour mix of cold wave, EBM and synth pop recorded at an "after party in my front room" our interest was well and truly piqued. Sequenced rather than mixed, stone cold (sorry..) classics such as P1/E‘s ’49 Second Romance’ sit comfortably next to angular oddities we have never heard before.
