First listen: Vince Clarke and Martin L Gore’s new techno project

It’s been a while, but Depeche Mode‘s Martin L Gore and Erasure‘s Vince Clarke got back in the studio this year for the first time since the Mode’s 1981 debut album Speak & Spell.
Don’t expect the VGMC project to be scraps from Depeche Mode, Erasure and Yazoo’s table though — their first EP ‘Spock’  is a sleek slice of techno that jolts and whirrs in all the right places.

‘Spock’ is available exclusively on Beatport from today, with a 12-inch release on Mute Records on December 19. VCMG’s debut album will be released on Mute in spring 2012.
