Disc A is a collection of the greatest hits from a 15-year era of Australian techno and electronica explorations, encapsulating 24 hours in the life of an electronic music fan. Beginning during the day, whiling away hours in the office listening to radio hits by Disco Stu, Artificial & Toupee, Bleepin’ J Squawkins, and General Electrik, we move to glitchy home listening, relaxing with Pretty Boy Crossover, Two4K and Ubin after a hard day. Then it’s off to clubland to enjoy the sounds of Deepchild and the Telemetry Orchestra before moving on to a warehouse party. The chill-out room warms up with Dark Network and Atone before its time to hit the dancefloor for some techno beats from Continuum and Itch-E & Scratch-E. Finally, the comedown with 5000 Fingers of Dr T, back home in the early hours.

Disc B is an all-new selection of remixes produced from the new generation of Clan Analogue’s artists, all of whom remixed their favourite tracks from the collective’s back catalogue. Koshowko take on Disco Stu, Winduptoys resurrect Continuum while Lunar Module lift Nerve Agent into orbit. Hear the first vibrations of Clan Analogue’s next era…

The set includes a companion DVD. As well as classic filmclips by Deepchild, Telemetry Orchestra, Pear Shaped and others, the disc includes the new documentary Clan Analogue: Plug In & Switch On and the influential 1995 VHS release Clan Analogue Live at the Goethe Institute.

A digital-download-only album Cognition X: The Clan Analogue Rarities Collection is available for free to anyone buying Re Cognition triple-disc set. Go to Cognition X download page for details.
