Vince Clarke
Vince Clarke
Vince Clarke is an electronic music pioneer whose analog synths, samples and chilly beats have accounted for some of the most memorable chart-topping hits and toe-tapping dance grooves of the last three decades. He is a founding member of Depeche Mode and writer of many of their most seminal and beloved tracks the classic single “Just Can’t Get Enough,” cited by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the100 Greatest Pop Songs Of All Time. Yazoo (Yaz in the U.S.), is one of the first, and still most influential, male/female pairings in synth pop. Their two classic albums, “Upstairs At Eric’s” and “You And Me Both” not only set the standard for innovation in songwriting, composition and production in their own time, but pointed the way to the future for all the artists who followed in their wake. The 12” mix of “Situation” remains a benchmark in the history of dance music and virtually began the long love affair between alternative music and club culture. With singer and co-songwriter Andy Bell, Erasure have sold more than 25 million records and charted some of the most beloved songs of the past twenty years, from “Sometimes” and “Oh L’ Amour” to “A Little Respect, “Chains of Love” and “Always” among dozens of others.
Daniel Miller
Daniel Miller
Daniel Miller is the founder and chairman of Mute, one of the world’s most innovative record labels and publishing companies, with a long history of Number One chart successes in the UK, US and Europe. Since its launch in 1978, Mute has grown from Miller’s one-man operation into an international company with an artist roster that includes Depeche Mode, Grinderman, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Goldfrapp, Maps, Richard Hawley, Erasure and recent signings Josh T. Pearson, S.C.U.M, Polly Scattergood and A Place To Bury Strangers and offices in London, New York and Berlin. Today, as ever, Miller remains heavily focussed on Mute’s creative output. He also hosts a monthly show on Radio Eins in Berlin, and occasionally plays minimal techno sets as a club DJ. More than three decades after he founded the label, Mute remains true to Miller’s original vision of adventure, experimentation and artistic freedom.
