If it's been a while since Adult's last album, there's a very good explanation. Back in 2014, they successfully applied for an arts grant to turn their studio into a kind of drop-in centre for some of their musical heroes. Since then, a vast roll-call of electronic music talents old and new have spent three weeks living, collaborating and recording with Adult in Detroit. The results are showcased on Detroit House Guests. Combining their usual EBM, industrial, electro and experimental influences with those of their selected guests - Nitzer Ebb's Douglas J. McCarthy, noted experimentalist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and Swans man Michael Gira included - it's an album that feels like a wholehearted celebration of the power of artistic collaboration.
