❚ VINCE CLARKE IS A MAN SYNONYMOUS WITH SYNTH POP and a legend in the history of electronic music. He’s famous for founding three of the most popular and lasting musical acts of the 80s: Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure. But his distinct sonic output depends upon another feat: he has spent the past 30 years amassing one of the world’s most impressive collections of rare, “holy grail” analogue synthesizers. In 2004, Clarke left England for the woods of Maine, on the Atlantic coast of the USA, where he constructed for these monolithic machines a temple he calls The Cabin . . .

    I’ve heard that he is currently working with Martin Gore, trying to write the ultimate synth classic… let’s hope for the best!
