Nineties Electro Mixed and Brewed @ V.K. Studio,

The etchings indicate the contents of side A to be side B. However the labels clearly list a continuous numbering for both sides. The tracklisting combines both.

Outta Scotland comes this very special electro gift-pack (3 tracks, 3 bonus beats and a bunch of samples, plus a sticker). The epic A-side, "Skinny Cap" is a bounding episodic Electro classic, with the bizarre "Real Men Use Carplan" sample. For those that don't know, Carplan is a brand of car valeting products.
"Question" follows in a mellow style, with doodling synth bassline, wibbly noises and a meandering lightweight electro beat, which is beefed up considerably towards the end. Late night stuff, classy.
"Asphalt" on the B adds nifty scratch sounds and fiddly tones to twittering Detroit-isms and the funky electro break.
The first bonus beat takes a dirtier "thwunk"ing beat and a naughty popping sound and puts them with the same synths. The second is a cleaner variation on the same theme, while the third is different altogether, featuring a squelchy snare and trad electronic handclaps with reverb, plus some classy pacman-ish synth sounds. The samples consist mainly of some vocodered bits, plus a horrible tone.

The artist name is a reference to the movie "Bladerunner" where Voigt-Kampff machines were used to detect if a subject was a replicant or a human. Quality dancefloor electro.
