Le Car is the side project of Ian R. Clark & Adam Miller: one half of Detroit electro punks ADULT. and co-owner of the seminal Ersatz Audio. Here Dutch retroverts Clone Classics compile some of the duo's finest moments over the years between 1996 - 2000 and believe us there's many. Where the project differs from Miller's main musical outlet is less emphasis on punk/cold wave aesthetics (as he did with Nicola Kuperus) and more focus on tougher/grittier Detroit electro-funk grooves. The dirty subterranean boom and snap of "Audiofileeight" from 1996 is as aquatic as anything Drexciya or Ectomorph were doing at the time, "#15" from '97 is where the synths get more wacky and dope sounding: like something out of Space Invaders on acid. Another great example is "Cinematic-Automatic" from '98 which is the best example of deep, dark and minimal electro in the same vein as homegrown heroes Dopplereffekt.
