AKA RANDOM FACTOR
Andrew Weatherall - "For quite a number of years now I have been convinced that Mr Finlow is a conduit for musical transmissions beamed from a parallel universe, sometime in the future”.
Maceo Plex - "Carl has produced some of my favorite electro tracks of all time, and successfully occupies the most space in my record collection. And he's possibly not human”.
Keith Tucker / Aux 88 - "Carl Finlow has been to the Electro movement a breath of fresh air. When ever visiting Europe and playing clubs , I would always hear some music that always stood out from the rest, and caught my ear. Viewing the dj's record would always show a Carl Finlow moniker or production. Carl Finlow's vocoder work was amazing and inspiring!”.
We hear the phrase ‘unsung hero’ often slung around, but if ever there was a true unsung hero in electronic music it would be Carl Finlow. Active since the early 90s Finlow has produced a prolific catalogue under the pseudonyms Voice Stealer, Silicon Scally and Random Factor on revered labels including Warp, Klang and Novamute but it is now time for Finlow to stand up and be counted for his lifetime contribution under his own name. Finlow was the co-founder of 20/20 Vision records and produced many of the early releases so it is a fitting tribute that the label has now compiled a collection of his very best electro works including the timeless classics ‘Anomaly’, ‘Convergence’ and ‘Broken Mirror’ as well as undiscovered cutting edge gems like ‘Undercover’ ‘Format Wars’ and ‘Electromotive Force’.
